Re: Click baity headline is click bait

Is it or is it not ironic that a person seeks to establish their intellectual superiority by asserting one meaning of the word "irony":

- the expression of one's meaning by using language that normally signifies the opposite, typically for humorous or emphatic effect;

while apparently failing to be aware of another:

- a state of affairs or an event that seems deliberately contrary to what one expects and is often wryly amusing as a result.
