As your high school English teacher loved to point out, nothing Alanis Morisette sings in "Ironic" is actually ironic. "Rain on your wedding day"? That's not ironic, that's just unfortunate.

But to heighten the absurdity of the actual irony of a song about irony listing nothing ironic, last night on The Tonight Show, Jimmy Fallon, Alanis Morissette and Meghan Trainor (?) clucked to the melody. The song is more enjoyable when it's clucking instead of the frustratingly false lyrics.
