The Carnival of Satire (#84)

The Carnival of Satire (#84)Second Anniversary Edition

Well, we’ve been doing this satire thing for two years officially, and to celebrate, we’ve got a wonderful collection of satire from some regular contributors and some new faces. We hope you enjoy the full frontal irony.

Grantmx from Maize Break (Africa’s Most Outstanding, ie. satirical, Source for News and Information) has a heartwarming story about how some Sudanese Women Welcomed Female US Prison Inmates into their lives.

Ravi Vora has an excellent (Marvel-heavy) collection of Comic Book Characters and Their Real Life Enemies.

We found this video of Conan O’Brien touring Industrial Light and Magic to be hilarious, mostly for his impersonation of C3PO drunk.

Unfortunately, mental_floss rejected this submission from Matt Robison, but their loss is our gain: 5 Tips: How to Read the Bible the RIGHT Way – MY Way.

Madeleine Begun Kane finds a use for all that annoying spam: turning it into Haiku. I especially liked:

Large screen DVD.
Is your husband performing?
Big trading alert.

eColita!Did we mention this was our second anniversary? We even managed to find a corporate sponsor, Taco Bell, who wanted us to pitch their new E-Colita (You’ll want to check out more of Vinchen’s environmental art here.)

We choose to believe that The Free Geek’s Ultimate Guide to Freeloading is satire. Of course, there was no trackback option at this blog, so maybe they’re serious.

Rickey Henderson has another series of Recommendations, in which he reminds us of Ned Flanders’ cider-spotting prowess: “If it’s clear and yella’, you’ve got juice there, fella. If it’s tangy and brown, you’re in cider town!”.

The Wrestling Professor discovered that Sean Sherk Tested Positive for Baby Food. After reading the story, we were somewhat disappointed that it was actual baby food, not food made out of babies. The Ultimate Fighting Championship is definitely losing its edge.

Edith Yeung has video evidence that We are all Liars.

And not be outdone, Cnothing has Dilbert-y evidence that many of us are lazy and shiftless too.

Ted Reimers has advice we think you should ignore: How to not get tasered at College.

EeBeauxOs has a parody of The Dating Game (we this may have been a Cro-Magnon game show): The Incarnating Game.

Bile, Snark, and Sneer presents Larry Craig Tape Released.

Dana presents A homeschooler’s guide to unhappiness.

And to take us out on an elevated note, we have one more video for you:

99 Words for Boobs [vide00] (Hat tip to bad example).

Thanks to everyone for continuing to make this a great carnival. If you submitted something, and it didn’t make it in, it’s not that we don’t appreciate your work, but we just felt it wasn’t satirical enough for the carnival. 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. See you in two weeks!
