101 Ways to Die Before You Die

Sometimes you just can't make these things up. With the publication imminent of Richard Wilson's Can't be Arsed: 101 Things Not To Do Before You Die, comes the news that Dave Freeman, author of the original 100 Things to Do Before You Die has, well, died. And not by doing one of his ridiculous things to do -- touching a tiger or swimming with dolphins or so forth. No, the guy fell over at home, hit his head, and that was it. Had he done his 100 things? Nowhere near, he'd done about half.

There's a word for this kind of stuff, isn't there?

Is the word "funny"?

I think it's ironic. Though I've been confused ever since that Alanis Morissette song rewrote the definition.
