The Carnival of Satire (#28)

The Carnival of SatireHaving seen what can happen when you drift away from your mission (the debacle of the Carnival of the Vanities this week, for example) we have tried to keep to our goals by presenting only satire. Okay, a few posts are more satirical than actual satire, but we think we can make an argument for what’s included this week lively round-up. At any rate, we hope you will enjoy this week’s submissions:

We start with a beautiful parody; English professor jokes dressed up in the form of an episode of Law and Order: Special Academic Unit (many thanks to Ahistoricality for finding this!)

Dr. Tundra has kudos for Buckley F. Williams at The Nose On Your Face, who had to alert the CDC when he discovered that Syphilis caught a bad case of Paris Hilton.

Chris Alexion at Welcome to the Fallout has a fake news story for you, English: EPA To Crack Down on Amish Emissions.

Ahistoricality also found this gem: “Symmetrical Pubic Hair Results in Good Behavior Days? Please. You’re Spoiling Me, Sire!” posted in Frankie Can’t Relax.

Amanuensis continues to let us know how the first inter-species marriage is going in Honeymoon interrupted by summit.

While on the subject of history, Mensa Barbie at Mensa Barbie Welcomes You unveils the truth behind the masterpiece in The Oil Lift of Isabella d’ Este .

Dean Swift at A Swiftian Rant has an excellent list of things you don’t want falling out of the folds of your magazines in Keeping our Borders Safe

Despite being more sarcastic than satiric, we decided to include the other Swift (Jon) and his notions on Jill Carroll vs. the Blogoshpere.

Tommy at Striving For Average presents The Capitol Police.

Hobart T. Johnson presents Environmentalists Struggle to Cope with Earth’s Cancer Diagnosis, 1000s Convert to Christianity posted at The Baloney Press Satirical Newspaper.

AbbaGav at AbbaGav has a modest proposal in My Plan for World Peace — and Just Maybe a Nobel for Myself .

Jack Cluth at The People’s Republic of Seabrook presents Thank God we can count on David Stern to protect our impressionable children

Huzaifa at justifying insanity presents SOP.

Android CAI/7 at The MoxArgon Group presents Illegal/Illogical

And to take us out on a rhyming note this week, Madeleine Begun Kane at Mad Kane’s Notables has a Tom DeLay Duo of Limericks.

As always, thanks to everyone for their submissions. Without your hard work there is neither ironic, nor curmudgeonly joy. Remember you can submit here with this handy form, or here; the COS is listed at the Ubercarnival, and at the Blog Carnival too. The deadline is midnight now. Well, actually, it’s midnight next Wednesday night, but you get our meaning…
