Mr. Pin will be along shortly to say that he was asked to do a bit of spooning by his lady friend - the one with the moustache who calls himself Carlos during the day but who wears dresses up the weekend and calls himself Doris - and, judging by the size of her foo foo, he was unsure whether to get a dessert spoon or a tablespoon.

It's like 10k spoons when all you need is a knife.

I'd consider that to be more annoying than ironic.

Ironic would be more like turning down a knife in favour of 10,000 spoons but then it turns out that a knife was what you actually needed.

Are we talking 10,000 individual spoons or a spoon worth £10,000? I am never sure with spoons.

1 spoon - 10k is the brand name.

I thought, given your love of cooking and booze, you would have gone with: It's a black fly in your Chardonnay.

I obviously didn't think my reply through throughly enough :(

I think I read something once that not one thing in the song is actually ironic - maybe that's ironic in itself :blink:

She's quoted on wiki as saying:

For me the sweetest moment came in New York when a woman came up to me in a record store and said, ‘So all those things in ‘Ironic’ aren’t ironic.’ And then she said, ‘And that’s the irony.” I said, ‘Yup.’

Which smacks of having an excuse offered up to you on a plate
