The Carnival of Satire (#71)

The Carnival of SatireWelcome to the Carnival of Satire, now running every other week! (Until it isn’t). To start with, we have some interesting problem-solving on how to deal with climate change:

Yep, Ferdinand T. Cat thinks It’s Time to Do Something About Global Warming and he has a squirrelly solution.

Remulak MoxArgon has a much less nuanced answer in Global Warming: Finally A Final Solution.

Madeleine Begun Kane has a duo of limericks for your edification and entertainment: Running from Mistakes and Chafing At “Chick”.

Speaking of chicks, Lauren at TRA LA LA has pointers for how to deal with Public Enemy Number 1: Girl Scouts.

Ahistoricality has found an template at Spinning Clio for How to Get Historians Riled Up.

Damian G. outlines an elaborate April Fools’ joke in which Congressional Democrats feign patriotism, resolve.

Sammy Benoit is just thrilled that Jimmy Carter New Book (okay, he’s being sarcastic.)

Vox Poplar presents These Things I Believe.

And though this doesn’t come from a blog, this clip from Robot Chicken is hilarious. Watch for the look between Emperor Palpatine’s freaky-looking lackeys when he calls Vader “my favourite Sith.”

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.
