a) amusement that one is playing what has been long mocked as an old-person's game
b1) realization that shuffleboard is actually fun, in which an ironic framework houses non-ironic enjoyment, or
b2) realization that shuffleboard really isn't any fun at all, which can lead to:
c1) dogged commitment to playing a not-fun game in the name of irony, or
c2) renunciation of ironic enjoyment (i.e., nobody actually plays the shuffleboard), which will never be a complete renunciation at all insofar as the object of irony is still present as a kind of untransmuted lump (quoting C.S. Lewis completely out of context) in the middle of the barEdited by erictheobscure - 4/6/16 at 3:59pm
