Olympus – The Three Fates announced they will be welcoming singer-songwriter Alanis Morissette as their newest member. Morissette first rose to fame in the 90s with a string (no pun intended) of hits that included Ironic.
Lachesis, one of the Fate sisters, says, “We were huge on Ironic when it debuted. It’s still Clotho’s number-one jam when she’s getting ready to mess with someone. Alanis showed such promise in the art of twisting people’s fates in small but effective ways. Giving someone a shipment of 10,000 spoons when they’re praying for a knife is brilliant.”
The Fates expect their newest member to hit the ground running when she starts next week – hopefully she won’t be the one holding the scissors when she does.
The successful singer has long been jeered for writing a song that lacked irony in spite of its name. In a twist of “irony,” Morissette’s new role means a character will be added to the Greek play Oedipus in her honor. Oedipus‘ genre is – you guessed it – tragic irony.
This is the first roster change for the Fates since they hired a young Rod Serling as an unpaid summer intern.
