I think you're all right with the irony, though you've probably got your
own interpretation of that word...  

It's not the "meaning of meaning" that gets me, it's people who think
they and everyone else know what "meaning" means.  It gets even more
dangerous when people talk about "knowledge" like that.  Then there's
that "truth" business... I think I prefer the syntactic basement.
