Welcome to The Carnival of Satire, where irony reigns and all our venalities are put in their place. This week’s graphic is in honor of Sir Paul. But onto the satire:
Okay, we found this high concept parody that makes
monetary policy entertaining! We’re not sure who actually created it, but the singer is supposed to be Columbia Business School Dean Glenn Hubbard (hence the final lines, “ CBS is great, wouldn’t change my fate…”). Extra relevant with the markets dipping and the run on resources.
Madeleine Begun Kane at
Mad Kane’s Notables has a great limerick about the Sleeper VEEP.
Limerick Savant has another with No one expects the NSA .
Muammar Quadaffi at
Vox Poplar Is Right About Everything & Don’t You Forget It! is ready to Get Normal.
Ahistoricality discovered this parody of a rant (or ranting satire, we’re not sure), “In which I fantasize” hosted at the exquisitely titled Gentleman’s C. And on a less ranty note, Ahistoricality found the prose poem: Deciderata.
What was Bush thinking when they told him about the attacks? Well,
Jon Swift has found President Bush’s My Pet Goat Margin Notes and they are revealing!
After reading this post from
Catnabbit!, we suspect we may soon see a new picture book about Covert and Spanky the cats hired by the NSA to Build a Kitty Litter Box Database.
As if the NSA data-mining wasn’t shocking enough, Joan Conde at
Mamacita reveals that the Church of Latter Day Saints Admits Phone Call Plan.
On a related note, Scooter dials up the Mormons in
