Ironic statement

Don'trust your heart because it's not on the right side.

• English -

The phrase "on the right side" has a double meaning -- is that what irony is?

• English -

Yes..

• English -

To say one thing when you mean something else - irony

• English -

I mean "the right side" means two things (double meaning): the right (as opposed to the left) and correct (as opposed to incorrect).

Is that what irony means?

• English -

Yes. "As opposed to the left"

• English -

I agree with Writeacher that it doesn't look like irony. I'd call it a play on words.

• English -

Thank you both.

• English -

You're very welcome.

• English -

Then it's a pun

• English -

Ah, yes -- you're right.

=)

• English -

Thank you again.

• English -

YW!!
