I’m a huge fan of irony. I’ve seen quite a lot of “funny pet name” articles floating around the net, and while most of them are chalked full of wonderfully entertaining pet name suggestions, I feel they’re often a little thin in the ironic-humour department.
For those who need a little English-class refresher on what irony is: it’s when you describe something as the opposite of what it really is. An example would be walking into a very messy room and saying something along the lines of, “Wow! Couldn’t be cleaner in here.”
I apologize in advance if some (or many!) of these aren’t the funniest and fall a little flat, I did my best! Please do come to my rescue with some of your own suggestions in the comments below!
