SAN FRANCISCO MAN BECOMES FIRST AMERICAN TO GRASP SIGNIFICANCE OF IRONY
Jay Fullmer, 38, yesterday became the first american to get to grips with the concept of irony.
"It was weird" Fullmer said. "I was in London and like, talking to this guy and it was raining and he pulled a face and said, "great weather, eh?" and I thought "wait a minute, no way is it great weather".
Fullmer then realised that the other man's 'mistake' was in fact deliberate. Fullmer, who is 39 next month and married with two children, aged 8 and 3, plans to use irony himself in future. "I'm like using it all
the time" he said. "Last weekend I was grilling steaks and I burned them to sh!t and I said "hey, great weather!".

When people used to ask me how I was doing and I told them the truth they thought I was too negative. Now when they ask I tell them something like teriffic. When you tell them teriffic they look down there nose at you like - "What's your problem buddy?" Try it, it's great fun.
