Have you seen this cartoon?
Ben Shapiro has and he’s not happy.
Well done, Ben Shapiro, you almost got a joke.
Satire uses irony, exaggeration, and ridicule to expose and criticize people’s stupidity or vices, particularly in the context of contemporary politics and other topical issues. The fact that you do not like it does not mean its not satire. The fact that it’s mean spirited and insensitive does not mean it’s not valid. It’s hyperbole. But for some reason, Mr Shapiro, you seem to taking this as literally as the Texan in the picture is. Would you also explain to the Curate in the famous Punch cartoon that an egg is either spoiled in its entirety or not at all? I assume you would not.
When it comes to jokes, I will always side with the gag. Funny or unfunny, it doesn’t matter. We need jokes.
