The balloon rises up to the ceiling. The bride reaches the groom just as the balloon hits the fire safety sprinkler system.

    Mrs. Goody was ready to surprise her family for dinner by making their favorite meatloaf. Mrs. Goody’s meatloaf was special. She made it in individual muffin tins and made one for each person, just the way they liked it. She mixed them up, put them in muffin tins, and hid them in the refrigerator. They were ready to cook for dinner. Maria came home from school and looked in the fridge for a snack. “Mm…. chocolate muffins,” she thought. She took one out and ate it. “Oh!” She screamed and spit it out on the floor. _________________________________________________________________________________________________What kind of irony is being used in this story?
