The Carnival of Satire (#70)

The Carnival of SatireWelcome to the 7oth edition of the Carnival. Two weeks seems to be a better rest period for the satire to pile up, so the next edition will be April 5th. We hope you enjoy the current edition:

How Superman (the one with Christopher Reeves) should have ended. The best part of this parody is the Seinfeld-esque banter between Superman and Batman later in the coffee shop. Hat tip to Bobbarama for this one.

It’s pretty clear that Brian has some kind of superpower himself, because this summary of Heroes based only on the commercials he’s seen is eerily accurate.

Speaking of super, here’s another limerick from Madeleine Begun Kane: Purges and Surges, Twin Scourges, Oh My!.

Tim Abbott has slightly more elevated subject matter for his poem: “The Misplaced Bones of William Dawes”: With Apologies to Longfellow.

Rajesh.P.I has a posting about one of the fine Whines of India.

Remulak MoxArgon presents the useful MoxArgon’s Guide To The Presidential Candidates, this week featuring the Republicans.

Bile, Snark, and Sneer has NOTHING to see here.

Mr Juggles presents Contrarian Investing on Daylight Savings.

Damian G. presents St. Patrick’s Day parade marchers call for an end to occupation.

Steve has another in his series of tongue-in-cheeck summaries of 24, this for Episode 13 – 6 pm to 7pm.

Sammy Benoit presents What Should Chirac Do Next ?

The Epicurean Dealmaker presents The Self-Made Man Club.

Wyatt Earp presents Stay Tuned For An Important Political Message posted at Support Your Local Gunfighter.

Remulak MoxArgon presents XRAN XPLAINS- CLIMATE CHANGE.

And to take us out, Craig Harper tackles the testosterone issue in A Letter to all Blokes…..

Thanks to everyone for submitting their satire. If you submitted something, and it didn’t make it into the carnival, it’s not that we don’t appreciate your work, but we just felt it wasn’t right for the carnival. In fact many submissions were quite funny/interesting/entertaining, but not really satire. Defining that is a moving target, but you’ll find our take on it here, in an essay on Satire’s Ugly Sisters. Thanks to these fine folks for helping us with webby-stuff: the Blog Carnival for their form; and the listings at the Ubercarnival, and at the Blog Carnival too.
