It still does not make it Ironic

Man dies after win on lottery TV show: "Carl D. Atwood, 73, won $57,000 on Thursday during a taping of the television game show in Indianapolis, Hoosier Lottery Director Jack Ross said.

After the two-hour taping, which will air tonight, Atwood returned to his hometown of Elwood with the check, Ross said.
About 7 p.m., Atwood was crossing Main Street a block from his home -- on his way to the grocery store where he had bought the ticket that got him on the show -- when a black pickup rounded a corner and struck him, said Elwood Police Chief Toby R. Barker."

No matter what Alannis Morrisette says, this still is not irony. It is crappy, and an extremely unfortunate set of circumstances, but irony would be if the man was hit by the lottery wagon bringing his money to him.
