Define "Irony"

I can’t define irony, but I know it when I see it. Like in the preaching going on in these bumper stickers. This car was in front of us for about 20 miles as we made our way to Camano Island today for Evan’s first birthday, so I had lots of time to think about it:

In case you can’t read them that well, the first one on the left says, In war there are no unwounded soldiers.:

And on the right, Test your Freedom:

Thank goodness we are a free country so folks can express their opinions and political views on their cars. Wonder how we got that way?

In the famous words of Col. Mustard, I say to the left sticker: You can’t make an omelet without breaking eggs, every cook will tell you that.

“But look what happened to the cook!” was the response to Col. Mustard. Very true. However, though most eggs have no control over the decision to make the omelet, they are well aware that omelets do get made and proud to make that sacrifice if they must for both their omelet and their cook.

It is not a sacrifice to be taken lightly, so here’s hoping that on this 4th of July, none of us takes our omelet for granted.
