The following bits are from “The Robot Devil’s Hands Are Idle Playthings”:
[The Robot Devil spins a wheel with the name of every robot in the world to see whose hands Fry gets; it almost lands on Bender, but instead lands on the Robot Devil]
Robot Devil: Oh, what an appallingly ironic outcome.
Bender: It’s not ironic; it’s just coincidental!
[The Robot Devil makes a deal with Bender to give him an air horn. The first thing Bender does is blow it - right in Leela’s face. Now she can’t hear the opera Fry is composing in her honor with the Devil’s hands]
Robot Devil: How delightfully ironic!
Bender: It’s not ironic; it’s just mean!
[The Robot Devil makes a deal with Leela: she gets robotic ears to hear Fry’s opera in exchange for “her hand.” The Robot Devil reveals that the fine print of the contract reveals that the deal was for her hand… in marriage.]
Bender (reading from a dictionary): “The use of words expressing something other than their literal intention.” Now THAT is irony!
So, is Bender any better at irony than Alanis?
