The Humble Scot!
May 19, 2009
Satire is a genre of literature, and sometimes graphic and performing arts, in which vices, follies, abuses, and shortcomings are held up to ridicule, ideally with the intent of shaming individuals, corporations, government or society itself, into improvement. Although satire is usually meant to be humorous, its greater purpose is often constructive social criticism, using wit to draw attention to both particular and wider issues in society.

This is not a thread for long-winded discussions. Neither is it a thread for your soapbox or third force agenda! If this is your aim, you are welcome to start your discussion thread elsewhere :D

This is all about images of satire of politics, sport, society, business, et al.

There is a thread dedicated to the great Zapiro. It would be good for this to be a mix of satirical images both local and international (if they are deemed worthy), and those which are relevant to today.
