Literally...when it's figuratively. People also seem to think it means extremely. I'm not sure when this started happening, but it pisses me off.

Middle school kids are using "random" incorrectly a lot now thanks to iCarly and Sunny With a Chance. They seem to think it means strange.

It's absolutely maddening to hear folks misuse this.  Usually they're using it as a substitue for "coincidentally" or something like that.  9 times out of 10, if you hear the term "ironically" bandied about, it's not ironic.  At all.  See Morissette, Alanis for further discussion on this topic.
 

Athletes, sports analysts and many celebs also misuse "surreal" for anything that they found to be "unreal" or simply difficult to believe.

Completely off topic, but is there any show marketed as being a kids' show that is actually detrimental to kids more than "iCarly".  There's absolutely nothing redeeming about that piece of shit program.

Nickelodian Kids show that consists of a bunch of wise ass, nearly feral kids and dopey/bumbling/evil adults getting up to various shenanigans.  I'm not kidding when I say this show has absolutely no redeeming qualities, be it for kids or otherwise.  It makes "You Can't Do that on Television" look like "Sesame Street".

Gotcha.  I thought it was some iPhone app.  :D

And I completely agree with whomever mentioned "surreal".  I had to correct my 18 19 year old niece on that one recently.
