Lighter BS: What would be ironic? (31) RE: BS: What would be ironic? 13 Jun 21

About 15 years ago, an in-flight consumers' catalogue was offering for sale high-quality prints of an aviation painting that depicted a vintage DC-3 turning on its approach to an airport in the 1930s or '40s. The airport, if I remember correctly, had some special connection with the DC-3; let's say it was Atlanta. The ad read something like, "Ironically, [the artist] was born in Atlanta."

It impressed me because there was no conceivable irony in the fact, but the adverb did make pure coincidence or trivial inspiration sound significant and entertaining.
