Irony in a nutshell is the opposite of the expected or intended result.

Coincidence is the accidental occurence of related or identical ideas, events, etc. at the same time.

Of course we all have dictionaries, apparently we just interpret them differently - That, I should say is quite the opposite of a dictionaries purpose. Now isn't THAT ironic??
