“And make no mistake: irony tyrannizes us. The reason why our pervasive cultural irony is at once so powerful and so unsatisfying is that an ironist is impossible to pin down. All U.S. irony is based on an implicit “I don’t really mean what I’m saying.”
― David Foster Wallace, “E Unibus Pluram: Television and U.S. Fiction”

― Charles Bukowski, Women
