Well, fail on the OP's part. Jackson is a real family name, so even if it's funny it's rather stupid to somehow think that they weren't being serious.

ohh! wow this is the first FML i've actually understood :D

98 - no he laughed because they were an African American family, had 5 members, and last name was Jackson. . . Like the band the Jackson 5!

See? It's not that hard to solve once you put your thinking cap on ;D

It would've been even funnier if they had a brother who was supposed to join them but he left and was replaced by one of the 5, as well as 4 sisters who weren't in the group.

Irony- A state of affairs or an event that seems diliberatly contrary to what one expects and is often amusing

One of the three uses of irony, the other two are and expression of speech and an adjective. I don't think the poster of this comment did anything wrong with word usage.

Irony:
The expression of one's meaning by using language that normally signifies the opposite, typically for humorous or emphatic effect.

A good example is the film Fight Club in which the main character becomes enslaved to a new idea to break away from the old one.
Hope that clears it up...

#147... Ignorant means uneducated in the fundamentals of a given ART (which means music) or branch of learning. So yes, a person can be ignorant for not knowing of a band, singer, etc.. You don't think someone could be ignorant for that yet you say you could call someone else ignorant for not knowing of a band..
