Irony

“A state of affairs that is the reverse of what was to be expected. A result opposite to, and in mockery of, the appropriate result.”

It’s Houdini locking himself out of his house…
It’s a skydiver breaking his leg when he falls out of the bed…
It’s Wolfgang Puck getting salmonella…
It’s getting swindled by the Better Business Bureau…

You get the idea… But irony is best appreciated when it results in death…it’s funnier too. Gruesome ironic death is the bread, butter, and blood oranges of any decent horror movie. Following in the grand tradition of having the girl who hates bugs die in a roach trap and the triskaidekaphobic falling down an open elevator shaft on the 13th floor, is Saw II…oh yes, there will be…Saw III.
If you’re at all squeamish, you’ll probably want to skip this one…’cause the squeamish chick in the movie is strapped to a chair and forced to watch Saw II…I’m pretty sure I just blew your mind…and saved you $10 plus the Fandango surcharge. I did not see Saw…and I only mention that because I think it’s funny to say “see-saw”. It’s got a decent twist ending and you get to see some 7th Heaven daughter cleavage…good stuff.

On to other business… ALL HAIL FRANK HONG! COMEDY KUMITE ULTIMATE CHAMPION AND FUNNIEST MAN ALIVE! ALL OUR BASE ARE BELONG TO HIM! MAY HIS RULE BE MERCIFUL AND JUST
Seriously though, the Comedy Kumite: Tournament of Champions was a great spectacle of fierce and farce. Kudos to the Comedy Spot for providing a great arena for our joust of jackassery. Frank Hong whipped the audience into a blood-thirsty frenzy that carried him past Zach Toczynski, Erin Conroy and, my pick to click, Justin Schlegel…lost the house on that one. Watch for Comedy Kumite: Wrath of Chris White.
