Pseudo Pseudo

I saw a funny thing on my morning walk today. I don't know if this is an example of irony or not. Irony is such a hard thing to pin down. Anyway, when I saw this, I definitely thought, "How ironic!"

So picture the scene. You're attempting to build a children's swing. You can't afford a brightly colored custom made plastic seat for your swing so you fashion one from an old tire. People have been doing it that way forever. You either hang the tire vertically from one point or horizontally from three or four points.

So what do I see today at the local children's park? A brand new fluorescent plastic factory-made swing seat that's exactly in the shape of an old tire.

Kind of reminds me of something...
