It's Like Rain On Your Wedding Day... No It Isn't

While reading The Economist the other day, I could not help but chuckle over the misfortunes of eBay, who have only recently admitted to paying an extraordinarily inflated amount for the purchase of internet telephony software company Skype.

Now I'm the first to admit that my grasp of irony is tenuous at best, and that when trying to define it I invariably quote directly from (and often incorrectly from) the movie Reality Bites, but that's all in the past now. From this day henceforth, I shall simply refer to this article while making sure I have a look of pompous self importance on my face.

Think about it. The world's biggest bidding site making the mother of all bidding blunders?

Irony. And if its not, then by god, I'm going to start listening to Alanis Morissette. I probably deserve it.

Ditto EB, that's what I was going to say. So I will anyway. No one deserves that!

It's a free riiiideee when you've already paid. It's the good advice that you just didn't take... do you want me stop already?)

Please, for the love of all that is holy, stop!

It's my own fault, I should have realised that some things just aren't funny.

That was the best song ever when I was 11. Ahhh, year 7. Now THEY were some good times.
