Death by IRONY

I am participating in the Blogging from A-Z Challenge again this year. What is this mysterious blogging challenge you ask? Arlee Bird from Tossing it Out came up with this fantastic idea where bloggers post using consecutive letters of the alphabet for 26 days in April. It grew in numbers, and Arlee now has many helpers. To view other participates of the A-Z event click here.

Odd deaths happen, right? It’s sort of like being at the right place at the right wrong time. My A-Z 2016 blogging journey takes us down the road of Death by Oddity. Come join me.
I= Death by IRONY
Well Charles Drew didn’t really die from irony, but rather the irony of it. He invented the first blood bank and died “during a failed blood transfusion” due to being in a car accident.  Source.  
See the irony?

  6. Very ironic. Also makes me think of iron in the blood, but that's my mind working in weird ways.

  10. How very unfair and sadly ironic that is, when you consider his contribution to that field.
