This channel shows the movie "Groundhog Day", and nothing else, on a continuous loop.
Whenever you tune in, all you ever get to see is "Groundhog Day". Over and over and over again.
The irony is obvious.

||Will you be posting this every day from now on?
||No, but it will seem that way.
||Ah. Therein lies the flaw. The purpose of irony is to divide and
exclude. There needs to be one clearly defined group who get the
in-joke, raising the correct eyebrow and smirking at the right time
and, just as important, there must be a much larger population of
unenlightened dullards who don't get it. This generates an
immediate affective pay-off for the former, at the affective
expense of the latter. All of psychoanalysis works like this. And
if the irony is, as you say, obvious, then there is no out-group and
hence, no pay-off.
||I would like to see if the actual Groundhog could show his
shadow on the other 364 days...What the heck does he do on
all those other days?
||That is what I thought when I saw the title!!
||The term "groundhog" allows the indigent inhabitants to discriminate between the very rarely seen subspecies of marmot, and the genuinely never seen Defecit Reduction Flying Pig, supposedly associated with each new U.S. president.
