Socratic Irony : Not Just for Ancient Greek Philosophers

Socratic Irony happens on the most garden-variety days:

"I have photographic memory."
"Huh?"
  • "Eidetic memory."
"Photographic memory. That's what I have."
  • "'Photographic memory' is slang. The official name for it is 'eidetic memory.'"
"Ohhhh. Yeah. Right. I forgot that."
