The Carnival of Satire #17

Carnival of Satire #17, with RobopopeYes, that’s robopope.

We begin this week’s Carnival of Satire at The Skwib on a rare literary high note. Jeremy at bardseyeview takes a lewd act and turns it into art in his post Romeo and Juliet and U of Penn. Warning: this post includes a sonnet, a discussion of iambic pentameter and public fornication.

Speaking of acts both lewd and public, The Evil Emperor Mindstation at Point Five learns Al Gore Arrested Ahead of ‘Police State’ Speech.

Tommy at Striving For Average discovers the recipe for a Chocolate City.

Over at Avant News Ion Zwitter relates how a Talking Points Delivery Mix-up Shakes American Right Wing

After reading Jerry Monaco at Shandean Postscripts to Politics, Philosophy, & Culture and his post, The War for Intelligent Design, Dr. Tundra is convinced we might find something about the FSM in the US Constitution.

Peace Moonbeam at the Peace Moonbeam Chronicles presents minks gone wild in PETA Party #2.

Lordsomber at The Pungeoning made General Kang shake in his little Bonaparte outfit with “Complete the Sequence, Mr. President.” None of us are sure what “pungeoning” is, but it frightens us deeply.

So, is violence EVER the answer? Apparently it is if you’re the Governator, according to Buckley F. Williams at The Nose On Your Face who presents Arnold Unleashes ‘Biblical Beating’ On Motorist.

Béla Selendy at Avant News presents Struggling GM Launches Internet Casino.

Gab, aka lecentre at Centrerion presents Quip of the Day.

FIAR at Radioactive Liberty presents The Missing Constitution.

And bringing us full circle, back to poetry and naughty behavior, Madeleine Begun Kane at Mad Kane’s Notables presents a quintet of limericks called Spying & Lying.

Thanks to everyone for an enjoyable week of posts! Remember you can submit here with this handy form; the COS is listed at the Ubercarnival, and at the Blog Carnival too. Habemus papam mechanicus!
