Carnival of Satire #3

image of panda puking - carnival of satireWow, another great round of satire coming at you in this week’s Carnival of Satire. Thanks to all who sent The Skwib their posts, and please keep them coming — putting this together is a great way to spend a couple of hours.

Let’s open up the COS with a bit of ripping good satire, in the mode of Swift. The Assimilated Negro at The Assimilated Negro riffs on the oft-partially quoted Bill Bennett, in a funny, raw, piece: If We Bring Back The Slave Days, Look At The Cool Products We’ll Have!!

On the softer, furrier side, Kid Various at The Idiom let’s us know that in a Mexican Zoo, a Panda Fails To Catch Yellow Fever. This is such cuddly, vaguely pornographic, satire.

Warren Meyer at Coyote Blog has gotten an exclusive look at the Agenda for UN Internet Conference. I think the only item missed was that the panel on limiting Pornography on the Web was actually a joint effort by the Saudi security service and the FBI.

Everyman at Everyman Chronicles presents Anti-Anti-War Protesters Bring Tanks to Rally!

Brandon Bibb at Grapevine’s Ramblings presents Red Sox File Suit for Joint Custody of AL East Title

Buckley F. Williams at The Nose On Your Face presents Sheehan’s Rogue Vagina Eats Officer’s Hand in an inspired bite … uh, bit.

Ah, Mr. Blue, you foolish, foolish fellow — why call in the lawyers? Mr. Satire at satire.myblogsite.com/blog presents Garrison Keillor At Prairie Home Lost His Oversized Yellow Panties, Companion Marbles & Sense Of Humor. The sad story of man with a great sense of humor and how he lost it.

Bob Sterling at Smegmaster.com [Ed. comment: yikes! If I was a master of smegma, I would never admit it, unless I was starting a punk band.] presents the pithy and inspired: Steve Jobs and God team up to release Bible Nano

Vox Poplar at Vox Poplar Is right About Everything & Don’t You Forget It! presents 1 on 1 with RONNIE EARLE

Brad Warbiany at The Unrepentant Individual presents Congress Tackles Performance-Enhancing Drugs in Music. Warning: this piece is rife with Canadian content. Not only is Bill Shatner mentioned, but so is the dreaded “aboot” issue. LUCY IN THE SKY!!!!

And to finish up, we’ll keep with the Canadian theme. It’s time to have at our politics. For those readers who aren’t following our scandals up here, our ruling party — the Liberal Party of Canada — have a tiny, almost infinitesimal problem with corruption. Bob at either orr pierces the veil beautifully in: An advertisement for the Liberal Party of Canada.

That’s if for this week folks. Keep that great satire coming, and for next week, please turn up your creativity to “11” and refrain from using the following words, which Thag finds deeply upsetting: orange, wankle rotary engine, toenail clippings, moonbat — and just to keep it balanced — wingnut. Thanks to jusintaugust for the panda photo and the ubercarnival. As always, if you’re not sure if your post is satire or not, you can always see what we think satire is, by checking out Mark’s essay, Satire’s Ugly Sisters.
