Irony

Overheard on the plane from O'Hare to LAX yesterday:

"I like Jeffersonian, concise, to the point; not like using so many words unnecessarily - like clean. Yea, that's what I like."

As for Jeffersonian, the context suggests the individual was referring to 'constraint' and yet, the syntax of the sentence (or, were those sentences? I couldn't quite settle on the punctuation) suggests a preference for Jeffersonian expansion . . .

Amusing nonetheless.
