Satire

Satire is like that friend who points out the silly side of serious stuff, making you laugh while you think. It takes the big issues of the day, dresses them up in a bit of humour, and serves them back to us so we can see the funny side of our own actions. It’s all about having a laugh at life’s craziness, reminding us not to take everything so seriously. In short, satire uses humour as a clever way to show us the truth, wrapped up in a package that’s much easier to swallow.
