That very year (or maybe the next, 1993), my affronted eyes fell upon an illustration of one "1950s" woman warning another "1950s" woman about a "1950s" man waiting to take her on a date, "Be careful! He's anti-choice!"
Irony, irony, irony. Well, it was the 1990s. Irony was big. There was even a graduate course on Irony taught at the University of Toronto by the "godmother of postmodernism" herself, Linda Hutcheon. She was very friendly and kind, as a matter of fact. Which, given the state of academic literary criticism at the time, is itself another irony.
