The Carnival of Satire (#31)

The Carnival of SatireMusical parody, sarcastic letters, and alien cultures are all par for the course at The Carnival of Satire. We hope you enjoy the 31st (really) edition:

It’s a little out of season, tune-wise, but Madeleine Begun Kane at Mad Kane’s Notables has a fun White House Shakeup Song Parody.

GrrlScientist has fake news calculated to shock you at Living the Scientific Life (Scientist, Interrupted) with the headline: Teacher Arrested At JFK Airport in NYC.

Ahistoricality has discovered another education-related satire with this letter: Dear search committee posted at Post-PhD Blues. Warning: anyone with an arts PhD might find this cutting a little too deep.

Remulak MoxArgon at The MoxArgon Group has a fun roundup of the MoxArgon’s Mail Sac (particularly the answer to the first letter.)

While on the topic of aliens, Elisson at Blog d’Elisson has a retelling of a story about how Superman pays the bills. And it’s only 100 words! Critical Mass.

Still on the same topic, Bob at either orr has tuneful parody with Whose country is it anyway?

Buckley F. Williams at The Nose On Your Face has an “essay” from Ike Turner On Iraqi Women’s Rights.

Miriam at miriam’s ideas discovers that Philadelphians talk funny.

FIAR at Radioactive Liberty has Poll Results Bad Omen for Bush

Soccer Dad knows we have a weakness for The department of silly pictures.

This week Peace is absent and instead we get Scooter’s Report posted at The Peace Moonbeam Chronicles.

Vox Poplar at Vox Poplar Is Right About Everything & Don’t You Forget It! presents Top 10 Super Happy Fun Time!

We’ll finish up with a parody of THE parody show: Tommy at Striving For Average wonders Where’s Teddy?

As always, thanks to everyone for continuing to make this a strange and wonderful weekly celebration of irony. Submit next week via this handy form, or or here; the COS is listed at the Ubercarnival, and at the Blog Carnival too. The deadline is midnight.


  1. Another fine job! Thanks for including my latest song parody!
