Irony has, in the past two decades or so, become a hot object of scrutiny. Yet, in hilarious and ironic fashion, despite this scrutiny, irony seems only to have become more deeply ensconced in our everyday mode of being — ensconced to such a point that Christy Wampole called irony “the ethos of our age” and went on to instruct that prior attempts at sincerity had failed — that we have now entered a nearly hopeless phase of Deep Irony.

I can’t get over senpai singing and doing trap arms to Irony.
