Isn’t it ironic? No it is not.

Just like a bad Alanis Morisette song, Kirby doesn’t get irony. Let us help:

irony

noun iro·ny \ˈī-rə-nē also ˈī(-ə)r-nē\

Simple Definition of irony

  • : the use of words that mean the opposite of what you really think especially in order to be funny

  • : a situation that is strange or funny because things happen in a way that seems to be the opposite of what you expected

Now, we will allow that maybe Kirby thought he was being funny. However, it is in no way, shape, or form ironic that the county passed an ethics ordinance. Even if he didn’t like it it doesn’t mean it’s corrupt.  And this certainly was NOT the opposite of what everyone expected. When can we move on?
