The Carnival of Satire (#33)

The Carnival of Satire (with silly walk pic)Welcome to the 33rd edition of The Carnival of Satire, here at The Skwib. We tried find the common theme for the lively posts this week, but alas, we’re just not seeing it. So instead we give you this Gila Monster (in a bowler hat).

To begin, Ahistoricality has discovered a new separatist movement in The Dominion of British West Florida and Tips for Creating an American Separatist Cause. Mark and Dr. Tundra would have found this a ‘hellalot’ funnier if they weren’t Canadian, where these movements are real, ongoing and expensive.

For this next entry, you’ll have to remember Robert Shaw’s performance in Jaws. If you don’t, skip “I’ll Catch Yer Mexicans For Ya” at The Nose On Your Face. But if you do, you’re in for a treat.

Perhaps Quint could teach Dubya something too, as Madeleine Begun Kane suggests in Fishing For Accomplishments.

GJR Stevenson at Rants and Slants wonders How does the world know about my tiny penis? We didn’t want to be the ones to tell you, but your wife has a blog about it: histinytallywhacker.blogspot.com. Or perhaps you’re just suffering from Koro. As a side note, this post has a high irony factor. Read the Google Ads on the page, and you’ll see why.

Decker Beaumont at Demon Lime does a passable parody of fanboy fanaticism in Star Trek 1: Best. Movie. EVAR! We were disappointed that he didn’t mention Uhura.

Tommy at Striving For Average has his own take on The DaVinci Code. Our only complaint about this post is that we think that Zoot and the Castle Anthrax would be wasted on Ian McKellan.

Miriam has 9 reasons I decline to be a Muslim woman. There are actually only 8 reasons on Miriam’s list. #1 is to be ‘decided later’. Perhaps you could go and suggest something in the comments. We have one word to mention: idribûhunna.

Bob at either orr has a new version of Dirty Laundry updated for 2006. And Conservatives.

At Vox Poplar is Right About Everything & Don’t You Forget It! they pass along a A Personal Message From Stephen Colbert.

This week Peace Moonbeam falls into an Alternate Universe.

Remulak MoxArgon & The Master at The MoxArgon Group presents So, you need someone sneaky, eh?.

We will finish off with a repeat post, Ahistoricality sends English Prof Turns Exam Grading into Drinking Game and says, “Wanna weep in your beer? Read the comments and realize just how weak the satiric sense of the blogosphere is…. while we weep about thesis statements and spellcheck…”

Thanks to everyone for keeping satire alive on the web. 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 apricot brandy.


  1. Zoot was in there for me. Ian just happened to be close by.

    Actually, it appears as though Miland Brown at the World History Blog posted “The Dominion of British West Florida and Tips for Creating an American Separatist Cause” and hence discovered the West Floridian separatist movement. Ahistoricality featued Miland’s post in a history blog carnival.
