Listen up, class, today’s subject is irony.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture is proud to be distributing, this year, the greatest amount of food stamps ever, to over 46 million people.

Meanwhile, the National Park Service asks us, “Please do not feed the animals.” Their stated reason for the policy is, “The animals will grow dependent on handouts and will not learn to take care of themselves.”

This ends today’s lesson on irony.

Now do you understand how Obama was elected, Mr. Garon?
