Great Moments in Irony

Do you remember that video of rescue workers, after having lovingly scrubbed a penguin down from an oil spill, releasing it back into the waters, only to watch it be gobbled down by a whale moments later?

This is almost as good. Some bird watchers in England were excited about the return of a swallow, not seen in nearly 20 years. Until a sparrowhawk devoured it before their eyes.

I like this story because "Sparrowhawk" is a handle I used when I played games online. Irony is fun!
