Is texting and driving a good idea? This video is an example of verbal irony and is suitable for use in high school lessons on the topic. Verbal irony is when a speaker intentionally says one thing and means another. From the first line, "My ride don't need no hand nor eye" we get the idea -- obviously, driving a car requires the driver to use eyes and hands. It's also sung by kittens trying to look tough and failing. My personal favorite line is "Physics don't apply to me," which is technically irony but is so completely believed by most teens that it should probably be carefully pointed out as an example of irony.
