So that would be, in fact, a kind of <a> dark irony, I suppose, were one to say something like that.

Is there any difference if I drop that article"a"?
Because I have read similar phrases like:
A kind of material,
A kind of hobby.
Usually, there isn't an article after "a kind of", no matter whether the noun that follows is count or uncount.
