Most Ironic Shakespeare Play?

Personally, I've always thought it's been Romeo and Juliet. This year, my H. English class proved that said play is not about love at all, but about lust and inability to make wise decisions. I mean, honestly, who proclaims love after catching a glimpse of someone in a crowded ballroom?

What's your opinion? What's the most ironic Shakespeare play ever penned?

Don't see what irony has to do with this.

I'm a fan of Twelfth Night since I was just in it! But the plot is this Duke is in love with Olivia, and Viola dresses up as a man to serve the Duke. He sends her to Olivia to win her over, but Olivia falls in love with her. And Viola falls in love with the Duke. It's confusing. You could say ironic, I guess.

"Much ado about nothing"

It's much ado, and its about nothing. Can't get more irony than that.
