Irony Alerts

From AOL:

The British tycoon who owned the Segway company died after accidentally riding a rugged version of the two-wheeled machine off a cliff.

From Huffington:

A private company in Maryland has taken over public libraries in ailing cities in California, Oregon, Tennessee and Texas, growing into the country's fifth-largest library system.

How do you privatize a service that spends millions of dollars buying stuff and lending it out for free??? Wouldn't a privatized library be a book shop? Confused...

Then there's that Polish couple who used to be Nazis until they discovered they were Jewish. Says Haaretz:

Pawel said he was angry and scared at what his new-found Judaism would mean for his life. They believed Jews had no place in Poland, and suddenly this applied to him.

Like... oops.
