The Carnival of Satire (#85)

The Carnival of Satire (#85)
Wow, did the nuts ever pile up around here this week! Like a squirrel preparing for the winter, we were kept hopping sorting through all the tasty satire. There is quite a lot of it to entertain, enrage and embarrass you in this 85th edition. Enjoy!

Madeleine Begun Kane presents poesy in a light shade of red: Not Tickled Pink About Girlish Pink Guns. It’s worse than she thinks: it is also one of the Forty-Seven Signs of the Apocalypse.

I’m still not sure how Gavin R. Putland got overlooked for the Nobel in Economics (or whatever it’s actually called). This proposal for Cap-and-trade blog licensing is brilliant.

You know, you wouldn’t guess it, but Lolcats have been around since the middle ages.

Bree Barton does more than perform well, she engages us in a tail of definite articles with Pee Post â¢: The Legacy .

Sammy Benoit has a list of creative interrogation techniques not to be missed: Whitehouse Announces Change in Torture Methods. At least we’re all at least calling it torture now.

lordsomber has a hilarious review of the Brew of the Day: Caffè de Gallina di Cacao.

Lord Bonkers is celebrating the fight against slavery in Rutland as only an Edwardian peer can.

Just set it, and forget it! AdamF has the secrets for How To Create A Late Night Infomercial.

Huzaifa learns that beer is a food, and necessary to choke down Dutch Cuisine.

Robert Bach lets the dogs out in: Arf! Arf! We Won’t Go

John Lampard is worried about the Star Wars franchise and the Lucas penchant for Modifications. I have a slight suspicion this may not be satire.

JPAJ presents one third of My Stupider Half, a parody of Eminem’s Guilty Conscience. Seriously, I’m not making that up.

Damian G. discovers Early Halo 3 adopters shocked to find game does not cure cancer.

Bile, Snark, and Sneer presents Mime Legend Marcel Marceau Killed.

Sammy Stevens presents Forgive me Father, for I have sinned….

Dhawal presents The Wicked Counselor.

Danogo presents Comic Strip “First Adventure of Danogo”: Create Your Own Cartoon Characters Online.

And to take us out on a religious note, Deborah Robinson has the Top Ten Signs Your Christian Conversion Didn’t Take, though personally, I think it would be better satire if the title was Top Ten Signs Your Christian Conversion Took (it too literally). Please correct me in the comments if you think I’m wrong.

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 satirical enough. 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.
