GURPS Space says something to effect of, "The good Lord must love space, He sure made an awful lot of it."
Similarly with irony. I'm not sure of God's exact stand on irony (it may be a result of the Fall). But He sure makes an awful lot of it.
I have been listening to a sermon by John Macarthur (aka Johnny Mac, which I sadly don't have a link for).
It is called "The Comedy at Calvary".
Of course, you might think that odd. The crucifixion was a terribly tragic thing.
But not for the people orchestrating it.
They saw this as the final repudiation of Jesus' ministry, and the validation of their own behavior.
Similarly, God uses the foolishness of preaching the Gospel, to overturn the "wisdom" of the world.
The ironing is delicious.
