    "If man were meant to fly, he would have been born with wings".

    No one knows who said this first, but...
    Ironic. Don't you think?

    Apparently not to dialed in to popular culture? (In the US anyway) ... I was referencing a song, just a joke not an actual ironic statement, so I guess it's ironic like that.

    There's a shorter version of this clip, but there's about a dozen puns in there aside from the key phrase, and it's ridiculously silly, so...

    LOL!!!!! :D

    Oh my word that me made me laugh! :D

    I think this most probably goes under top 10 " I must not just - open mouth insert foot - I must eat my own shoes!" quotes of all time - wow that was an insane / massive mistake!

    Although the thread title calls for ‘ironic quotes,’ they say that “a picture is worth a thousand words,” and these are fairly screaming “irony,” are they not? :D
