Your RDA of Irony


(To be read aloud in a brogue:)

And how should we be celebrating Bloomsday?  James Joyce is easier to revere than read.  Otherwise, the Muppets would have done a production of “Ulysses.”  When you want to sound brilliant but have nothing to say, give a Joycean display of verbal pyrotechnics. Recite two puns in three languages in four words, and the world will be awed. Err-sick carrion liaison. (In English, Latin and Greek, that dubiously translates to “Lord, have mercy on Ireland.”) The words may have no relevance or meaning, but genius is beyond coherence.

    You should know better than to throw down a gauntlet like that!

    Sadly, the audio e-mail bounced back. Don’t know why.
