The Carnival of Satire (#82)

The Carnival of Satire (#82)In this week’s carnival, we ask a lot of questions; the answers, be warned, may disturb you. And if you’re wondering, when is the next carnival, then you’ll want to know it will be in two weeks. Despite the odd number, it will mark the two-year anniversary of the Carnival of Satire. If you weren’t wondering that, you’ve probably started reading the next paragraph, and you’ll miss this important information: in the coming squirrel apocalypse, the safe word is “walnut cluster.”

We’re including this Japanese animation called The Butt-Biting Bug, [YouTube clip] confident that we will eventually discover that is some kind of masterful spoof of Japanese animation. If not, well, it’s still funny (and mighty puzzling).

Speaking of butts, Mad Kane has posterior poetry with: No Butt Cams For Me — No Ifs, Ands, Or Buts.

On the other end of the GIT, Rickey Henderson has some questions when he Reviews Odd Food Left in the Second Floor Staff Kitchen . I don’t know, this looks like something that might even intimidate Ross.

Darcy Xenophon at Catymology has more warnings from the dangerous black squirrel rebellion: Squirrel cults on my thingpoddy.

In addition to the coming squirrel apocalypse, we should also be concerned about marauding bands of turban wearing IT personnel — at least that’s according to Samir Bharadwaj and his advice on How to Start a Conversation with an Urban Indian.

Sammy Benoit wonders Why Don’t We All Call God—Bob?.

Scott Killen is more concerned with why Americans can’t point to the US on maps — is it because the country is in stealth mode?

Alexei wonders if a picture of a Shirtless Putin Will Spark World War 3.

Super Saver asks Who Ya Gonna Call? – CreditBusters!

And sometimes even movie stars have money problems. This isn’t really satire, but Will Ferrel is very funny in this clip presented by Michael Chu: Pay The Rent Now.

And to take us out on a musical note, the publisher of The Amadeus Net was kind enough to point out this video on how to get more kids to read. [This YouTube clip is definitely not safe for work.]

Thanks to everyone for continuing to make this a great carnival. 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. 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. Squirrel photo by mandj98.


  1. Yup, squirreled again!

    Yo, cats and catted ones! Darcy here again.Just gotta gloat over the squirrel-themed Carnival that Mark Rayner put together this week. (Nice graphic, Mark!)

  2. […] Mark A. Rayner over at the skwib included How to Start a Conversation with an Urban Indian in the Carnival of Satire #82. That is the kind of material I wish I was writing more of, so I’m interested in seeing what sort of response it gets as more people read it. […]
