The Carnival of Satire (#37)

The Carnival of Satire (#37), with little cockWelcome to The Carnival of Satire. We thought we’d try something a little different this week: presenting the satire in the order that it arrived in our mailbox. Except for our top two picks and the clean-up spot, everything is presented in the order that it arrived.

Top satire picks:

Ahistoricality brings us RJ Eskow: Vicious Liberals Disgrace America – With Shameless Media Support.

Don Surber imagines The quagmire at Yankee Stadium.

Astonishing satirical convergences:

This week’s episode of The Peace Moonbeam Chronicles has both ninjas and cocks! Check out, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Moron.

Hazel had news that NASA plans to Build a Litterbox for International Space Station posted at Catnabbit!. We’re not sure, but the accompanying video may need to be investigated by the ASPCA.

Historical atrocities abound in Robert J Parker’s unveiling of April Foolsday, The Real Story. Warning: this story has may cause shaggy-dog-itis!

SnoopyTheGoon has one from the “modest suggestion” files in: Political aspiration of pedophiles. We’re sensing more problems with the ASPCA.

Is Ali Eteraz’s presentation of Fear Ali Eshtehar, Children of Satan satire? We hope so.

Joan Conde learns that Jerry Bruckheimer Buys Hell for $666 Million. We’re guessing that now Hell is part of Hollywood, Beelzebub will soon be out of a job.

And speaking of Hollywood, Sharon Hurley Hall has a delightful Wordsworth parody in Spaceships.

Jon Swift made Dr. Tundra’s brain hurt with Homeland Security Thinks Outside the Box.

Vox Poplar presents 1 on 1 with the RCMP & CSIS about the Canadian Jihad Case.

Darcy X at Catymology has discovered that he has A weigh with the words.

Wild Bill presents a mathematical solution so convoluted, it must be true in: Glenn Reynolds of Instapundit.com is the AntiChrist (posted at Passionate America.)

And to finish up this week, we have Miss Cellania (insert smiley face), who has notes on the Barbecue season. This isn’t really satire, but it’s about barbequing. Barbequing people!

Thanks to everyone for making this week’s so great. Submit next week via this handy form, or or here; the COS is listed at the Ubercarnival, and at the Blog Carnival too. A special thanks to robin.elaine for the rooster.

    Carnival of Satire and Carnival of the Vanities.

    I’m not old enough in human years to remember the salad days of the small press, but amanuensis says that humans were passing out free copies of their friends’ poems and their own on every street co…

  6. […] “Polity parody,” “Carnival of Satire,” “The Lost PowerPoints,” and, of course, “Monkeys!” are among the categories into which Mark A. Rayner has divided his weblog, The Skwib. Consisting of a combination of the Canadian writer’s own fiction and his satirical views on news items he finds particularly interesting, Mark’s site is a pleasant diversion from the everyday. […]
