Having Fun with Parody, Satire and Farce
Have you even felt annoyed at the endless speeches, postcards, telephone calls and advertisements during an election cycle? Have you even wanted to poke any of that preposterousness? To parody any of that pompousness? To lampoon any of that lofty speechifying?
No kidding!!! Me too. I turned that irritation to good use in a parody. Aka satire, farce, spoof, lampoon. Whatever you call it, irritation offers the humorist a golden opportunity to fire off a few rounds for a good cause.
Enjoy my video: “Agnes Batdorf for President.”
“The Onion” is famous for piercing satire. They bill themselves as “The Onion, America’s Finest News Source, is an award-winning publication covering world, national, and * local issues.” Their headlines alone are priceless, like “Date Invites Woman Upstairs to Check Out Red Flags” and “Increasing Number Of Men Pressured To Accept Realistic Standards Of Female Beauty.”
So what’s bugging you these days? Go ahead and harpoon that sucker with a lampoon. Then share it with us. You know you want to.
