    Meaning/help
    Message from kaisan posted on 24-07-2019 at 09:27:52 (D | E | F)
    Hello.
    Could you help me,please?
    I watched a TV show,and there was a conversation like this.
    A:Not knowing is part of the fun.
    B:'Not knowing is part of the fun' is the model of the community college.
    I got the meaning,but what B says is maybe ironic.I don't understand what kind of irony it is.
    Thank you for any reply.

    Hello,
    I need more context on this to determine whether or not there is irony.
    From the two sentence conversation all I can say is that he may be referencing to the fact that people drink a lot in college and get blackout drunk, hence 'not knowing is part of the fun' but like I said, need more context.

    Hello.
    A:Not knowing is part of the fun.
    B:'Not knowing is part of the fun' is the model of the community college. (I think this should be motto).

    A community college is a place where students are expected to learn. If their motto is that it is fun to know nothing or learn nothing, you could call that ironic.
