Despite speculation in comments on this blog about a shortage of irony meters due a recent rash of explosions in the wake of various birther comments using words like “truth,” “logic,” “patriotism,” “facts,” “evidence” and “regard for the US Constitution,” there is no shortage.
Obot planning, starting in early 2009, foresaw the need for extensive new manufacturing capacity and thanks to funding by George Soros and a groundbreaking agreement with the government of China, two massive irony meter manufacturing facilities where completed in Guangdong Province, and began shipments in February of this year.
The factories are equipped with special irony-proof shielding to prevent explosions during the manufacturing process. Also the new T-2A model is configured in a special two-part mechanism that does not react to irony until an electrical connection between the two modules is made, preventing explosion of meters in storage, a persistent problem in older models.
We believe that there will be sufficient quantities of irony meters to carry us through the 2012 presidential election (which is always needs extra meters). All bets are off, however, should Barack Obama win the 2012 election. The irony will be overwhelming.
As as always, we recommend that irony meters not be installed near populated areas due to danger to civilians nearby. Also remember that irony meter installations must be registered with the Federal Emergency Management Agency.
