Happy International Woman’s Day and welcome to the Carnival of Satire (the sixty-ninth edition — purely a coincidence). We hope you enjoy it:
Rob at Old is the New New has Five For The Gipper an alternate history/satire for the 80s.
Conservathink has news about one of our favourite bugaboos: Greenspan chastised by investors for economically insensitive comments; use of r-word sparks massive sell-off.
From economics to politics: Don Davis at the Satirical Political Report has “The Secret” to a long list of disasters.
Ahistoricality discovered a useful (and extremely f*cking sarcastic) Blogger’s style guide for Civility and Seriousness.
Steve presents 24 Season 6 – Episode 12 – 5 pm to 6 pm Summary.
Bile, Snark, and Sneer presents LAID to rest one last time.
And to take us out on a sarcastic note, Craig Harper has some snark on how to be a weenie in: The Seven(teen) Habits of Highly (In)effective People.
Thanks to everyone for submitting their satire. If you submitted something, and it didn’t make it into the carnival, it’s not that we don’t appreciate your work, but we just felt it wasn’t right for the carnival. In fact many submissions were quite funny/interesting/entertaining, but not really satire. Defining that is a moving target, but you’ll find our take on it here, in an essay on Satire’s Ugly Sisters. Thanks to these fine folks for helping us with webby-stuff: the Blog Carnival for their form; and the listings at the Ubercarnival, and at the Blog Carnival too.
