How do you teach someone to appreciate IRONY when they obviously don't understand it at all?

It drives me nuts being 'schooled' by people who have no understanding of irony. They take what I say [or what someone else says] literally. And not everything that is said should be taken literally. Irony goes right over their head.

    I'm afraid this is all too common here on Y!A. It's quite astonishing, even worrying, to see how gullible so many people can be.

    If multiple people do not get your irony, the problem lies with you, not with them.

      Not necessarily, Hockey, though it may be true in many cases.
