What’s clear enough for now is that irony tends to require deeper processing and engagement when it’s new or unexpected. Which may may help explain why we can hum along so mindlessly to the irony-less “Ironic” but expend a bit more mental energy to keep up with the irony-filled spoof. It’s also why you can blow your own mind for a second by considering that maybe Alanis left irony out of “Ironic” because she saw that as the ultimate irony.
