U of L freshman center provides easy definition of irony.
In a slight bending of the theory behind irony (and this is not the place for a discussion of what indeed irony means in the 21st century, as much as I'd like to have that conversation with you), a man named Caracter shows he has none by being suspended (again) by University of Louisville head coach Rick Pitino for a violation of team rules. Three games for a Troy Smith loan, and now a game for an unspecified violation of team rules. Throw in the fact that Derrick Caracter has also been critized by his coach for being a 'fat athlete' and you have both a postmodern and a traditional definition of irony in one fell swoop.
Good job, Derrick! You've made some rhetoric and composition grad student's job much easier.
