For those who don't get the irony of the title: it is difficult to bring a sincere ode to irony, because those who want to do justice to irony have to confess it, and that undermines the sincerity of the ode. Yet that is precisely the intention. 

Irony is thrown out by many. Irony excludes and that is no longer allowed in these inclusive times. It is labelled as an artistic offer of weakness (because then you have nothing to say), young artists adhere to new sincerity (you have to mean what you say) and politicians relegate irony to a means of covering themselves and justifying discrimination (gays!).-|-But isn't the child thrown out with the bathwater? Because, when handled properly, irony is the lubricant of every conversation and 'a life worthy of being called human begins with irony' (Kierkegaard). 

It is up to De Warme Winkel to restore irony to its full glory. A theatrical rehabilitation; grand, horny and dangerous...
