There is nothing that I love more than irony, so this gallery of the world's most ironic pictures has made my morning.

These ironic and viral pictures feature such ironies as a 'Dead End' sign that has been placed directly in front of a graveyard and a semi-truck featuring the Pepsi logo splashed across its side having a Coca Cola machine being loaded into it.

Implications - In today's Internet-obsessed society, each viral sensation earns an intense amount of media (and social media) coverage in a short period of time. If corporations want to capitalize on this desire, they should place a premium on ads heavy in humor that display a subtle brand connection. The supposed authenticity of subtle marketing increases its viral potential.
