Is Alanis Morissette song Ironic actually ironic?

Alanis may not be so dumb after all. If you discount the argument that some of her examples qualify as "cosmic irony " (which I think is rather weak), the song " Ironic " is devoid of irony in any of the illustrations she offers. That, in and of itself, is ironic, and justifies the entire song from an artistic standpoint.
