take this excerpt from cracked

"The use or misuse of "I'm good" is another commonly corrected grammar mistake, best encapsulated in the following bit of dialogue:
Friend 1: Hello friend, how are you today?
Friend 2: I'm good.
Friend 1: I think you meant to say "I'm well," you caveman. "I'm good" means something else entirely.
Friend 2: Eat my **** . You knew exactly what I meant. I will whale on you with this length of chain until you change your ways.
-chain whaling commences-

Here we see a joyless son of a bitch insisting that the word "good" means "holy," or "righteous," or "not evil," or something along those lines. Which is correct, but it ignores the fact that "good" can also mean "desirous," or "fit," or "satisfactory," or "pleasant," or a dozen other things. If you think that someone is talking about their moral righteousness when they casually say "I'm good," then you're deliberately trying to misunderstand them, a crime worthy of chain-whalings in all jurisdictions."

huh
i never thought about that
i use the phrase and hear the phrase isn't it a lot but never really knew that its makes no sense

That isnt ironic, that would be a coincidence. A racist grammar nazi being corrected by a " ****** " on the other hand would be ironic.

You know thatguynamedtony it has a little more to do with the fact that good is an adjective and therefore does not make much sense to describe a verb like be. Whereas well is an adverb and well suited to describe a verb.
