One thought on “you cant understand satire outside its context (?) OR my bread and butter has been parodied!

  1. Craig,

    Thanks for posting–love the video and while I agree with the creators of the piece, the third guy does have a point about satire. Even my college students don’t get it. I’ve taught George Schuylers hilarious BLACK NO MORE three times–and three times the students just sit there, stonily trying to dissect the “serious” message of the novel. If you have to explain it…

    Tyrone
