The Carnival of Satire (#34)

The Carnival of SatireWelcome 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 Celestial Jumpy at The Peace Moonbeam Chronicles.

Wendy Boswell at Snarky Gossip has some song parody with Paul and Heather – Bye, Bye Love.

Tommy at Striving For Average shows us just an average day at Fox, where Nothing Goes Unreported.

Damian G. at Conservathink has a modest proposal for comprehensive immigration reform.

Bob at either orr presents The Baritones

TekTak F. Mechanoid at The MoxArgon Group presents Point/Counterpoint-Anti-Semitism

And on closing note worthy of Confuse-A-Cat, Aloysius Katz looks into the rather bizarre trend towards Therapy dogs & therapy squirrels posted at Catymology.
