"to satirize with opposites" - seems like a clumsy definition, not sure what it's supposed to mean.

Wu explains that God Bless America's Chinese title, "Pacific Nation," is meant somewhat ironically, since what seems to be a paradise-like treasure island isn't "pacific" in the least.

At its conclusion, the essay makes vivid use of "Guang Linsan," a mysterious and moving musical score then known only to Ji Kang. When Ji Kang was executed, "Guang Linsan" would die with him. Yu writes, "On this dark day in Chinese cultural history, the sun was shining." (page 335) It is a poignant use of irony.

Sun Ta-chuan regards this as a cruel irony of history, as well as a great disrespect to the old veterans themselves.

People in Taiwan need ro rethink their dependence on concrete. Isn't it a little too much when even watery mermaids are rendered rock-solid?!

the very existence of a one China policy only highlights the reality of a (52-year) co-existence of two separate Chinas.

Liao Ching-pi notes a supreme irony: Many a man who has an affair fights bitterly with his wife prior to divorce, refusing to come home or provide financial support.

2009年,蘇育賢的〈Under the Black Sky〉則是對全球太空競賽進行反諷。
