The Irony of It All

Do you love irony like I do? Sometimes there's just so much irony, you almost can't help but point it out and shake your head at it. Or laugh at it.

Catching Textbook Propagandists Red-Handed: Somalia Edition

Issues: 

On my Twitter feed the other day, someone posted a photo of a page in a textbook he was forced to use in college.
