The Carnival of Satire (#72)

The Carnival of SatireWelcome to the carnival. We’ll get straight to the good stuff:

Websurdity has a theory about the destruction of the Death Star being an inside job.

Plebian goes one better and proposes something that we’ve always needed, a Unified Conspiracy Theory.

Elisson has an alternate theory/future history that explains the new system of ELECTION.

Mime is money baby! Vincent McBurney presents Calling for a Living Statue Code of Conduct.

Madeleine Begun Kane has a political limerick that finally answers questions about Iraq in Merchants Of Hype.

Pistol Pete wonders about Art for Christ’s Sake.

Deepak Jeswal presents Culture Attack.

Damian G. presents It’s not easy being green….

The Epicurean Dealmaker presents Jabberwocky.

TekTak F. Mechanoid presents Point / Counterpoint- Hello, Imus Be Going….

And if you’re worried about the Canadian-US border, The Ominous Comma has news of a Pharmaceutical Troop Surge, that may be of interest.

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.

    That would be a good working title of a convention of half-goat, half-man beasties…which could be either more or less interesting, depending on which half was the goat and which the man.
