Inverse Definitions 1

Thomas and Harry have a tussle over a toy, which suddenly escalates into violence. I had turned quickly enough to see Harry shove Thomas, just before Thomas roared his disapproval and turned to me for justice. "Harry hit me!" "Yes, I saw him push you. Well, talk to Harry about it. Tell him what you think." Thomas approaches Harry, puffed up with righteous indignation. "Harry, I don't like it when you hit me. You don't hit. Hitting is bad. You never hit! Even when I hit you!"

And I am sure that Thomas had never been more sincere!!

Oh, he meant it. And was completely oblivious to the implications on his own behaviour. Irony is far and away my favourite form of humour!
