Oh my did we only put one definition to try to appear smarter than we obviously are as all of these fit somewhere into one of these definitions

The only one that can be argued to not be Irony is the global warming one as it was painted intentionally below the waterline to try appear ironic. Then again it's ironic that someone would put such a message trying be ironic when because the message is intentional it loses all of its irony due to the fact that there wasn't a rising waterline to use as real evidence for their claim to irony.
