What’s the difference between ironic and coincidence?

7 Answers

  • coincidence is when someting happens that isnt expected. like you and your friend wear the same shirt to work. irony is when something is funny happens because of what happened or who it happened to. like if a fire house caught on fire. so irony is a fire house catching on fire a coincidence is 2 fire houses catching on fire at the same time on the same street. its hard to explain and kinda confusing but i hope that helped.

  • Ironic Coincidence

  • Just about everyone mis-uses the word ironic, as in

    “It’s ironic that I was born on the same day as George Washington” or

    “How ironic that we both happened to watch the baseball game at home.”

  • Irony is a literary or rhetorical device, in which there is a gap or incongruity … Irony may also arise from a discordance between acts and results while coincidence an event that might have been arranged although it was really accidental

  • Well don’t feel bad, Alanis Morissette doesn’t know either.

  • ironic is when you think something is going to happen and the exact oppsite happens. conincidence: a striking occurrence of two or more events at one time apparently by mere chance:

  • One is funny if you are English
