Hey, Alanis attention...

It seems that there is this prominent Muslim who was arrested for taking a few inches off of his wife:

Orchard Park police are investigating a particularly gruesome killing, the beheading of a woman, after her husband -- an influential member of the local Muslim community -- reported her death to police Thursday.

Police identified the victim as Aasiya Z. Hassan, 37. Detectives have charged her husband, Muzzammil Hassan, 44, with second-degree murder.
Tragic...and...well...ironic. You see, according to Robert Spencer at Jihad Watch, the suspect and his late wife were upset by the negative perceptions of Muslims.

Muzzammil Hassan came to America from Pakistan 25 years ago. He became a successful banker in Buffalo, New York, near the famed Niagara Falls.

While he and his wife were happy to be in the United States, they were upset by the negative perceptions of Muslims, and particularly how this perception might affect their children.

That is how they came up with the idea of Bridges TV. Mr. Hassan's wife challenged him to start it.
That, Alanis, is ironic. A black fly in your Chardonnay...well...I don't know what that is. Or...meeting the man of your dreams, and then meeting his beautiful wife. That's...hmmm...the whole Sienna Miller and Balthazar Getty thing, and likely a good percentage of Hollywood as well as your profession.

Here's some irony for you:

How about a parent acting like a child? about a vegetarian enjoying some nice red meat? My personal favorite is the Illinois Legislature focusing on ethics. That irony is so thick that you can cut it with ten thousand spoons when what you need is a knife...

Got it?

Sought for comment, Alanis Morrisette exclaimed, “What are doing in my house!!! How did you get in here!!! HELP !!!”

She probably thought it ironic, being that she uses a broad definition of the term such that it doesn’t really reflect ‘irony’ at all. With each new story such as the one concerning Muzzammil Hassan above...the irony is starting to fade into Alanis Morrisette territory.
