The Carnival of Satire (#20)

The Carnival of SatireUnholy satire awaits in this 20th edition of The Carnival of Satire. We are somewhat concerned about our title graphic, given the touchy nature of certain religious groups, but we are free speech proponents. (Be thankful we are not so free as to use this picture.) Let us know if you like the pull-quotes introducing some of the posts. We tried not to steal all the funniest lines.

We’ll start off with an invocation of thanks to Ahistoricality for digging up some damned satire. This moment of science: Metabolism of Evolution Information in the Blogosphere is hilarious (you may want to click on this view and zoom in). And this uberspoof from The Poor Man Institute, Cornhole Classic is also great, though General Kang thought it was a little too “on the nose”.

FIAR at Radioactive Liberty inspired our title graphic with Get Ready!.

J.R. Kinnard at Don’t Floss with Tinsel preaches to the fake (and demonic) news choir with Bush Unveils Plan To Invade Cat-Man.

“While Democrats voiced their opposition to the President’s intentions, they agreed Cat-Man was, indeed, creepy.”

Remember Terri Schiavo? We must have been in a persistent vegitative state, because we missed this un-hallowed post the first time around. Well, My Living Will was brill(iant). Thanks to GrrlScientist at Living the Scientific Life for healing us! Be-aow!

“Under no circumstances shall the members of the White House, or federal or state legislatures enact a special law to keep me on life support equipment. It is my expressed wish that these boneheads mind their own damn business by actually doing something to improve the health, education and welfare of Americans who aren’t yet in a persistent vegetative state.”

At Mean Ol’ Meany you’ll find And Now, I Have Renamed February “Blackuary”. While Two Dogs is at it, he renames the other months too, including, Juanuary, Sextember, and Deathcember. We were sad to see that Islamber was missed.

Peace Moonbeam’s mission of Anti-Christ-like mercy goes awry in American Gulag.

“I screamed for the guard as one jihadist held me while the another furiously tried to decapitate me! Thank God all he had was a toothbrush…”

Okay, Madeleine Begun Kane at Mad Kane’s Notables, finishes up the Satanic service with a few wonderful hymns To Press Hypocrisy & Other Oprah Winfrey / James Frey Verse.

Ode To Press Hypocrisy
By Madeleine Begun Kane
The pundits are outraged
At Frey’s memoir lies.
Too bad that Bush falsehoods
Don’t get such a rise.

Thanks to everyone for the time they spent worshipping the god of satire this week! Remember you can submit here with this handy form; the COS is listed at the Ubercarnival, and at the Blog Carnival too.

Note: if your post wasn’t included in this week’s carnival, then that means one of two things:
a) Mark screwed up
b) You never linked back to the Carnival, after having been included for a few weeks.
Both are easily rectified — just send us a quick email at skwib(at)markarayner.com.

    CoTC hosts the Carnival of the Vanities.
    Satire #20 by the Skwib. Yay for top billing! Well, almost top.
