Deadbeat can’t recognize satire…

August 25, 2006

soooo, on TogaFrauds “presidential” blog, deadbeat posted this “news” regarding Fidel Castro.

Fidel Castro Dead? Unconfirmed sources report that Cuban strongman Fidel Castro has died. Castro who has been under going treatment for a severe illness apparently passed away last night at private hospital just outside Havana. The news of Castro’s death has been kept from the people of Cuba and South Florida to hold off the upheaval such news will bring. Our sources indicate that the US government is trying to keep Castro’s death a secret until an invasion force can be assembled. Read more here. Fidel Castro News Posted by Doug Kenline.

This is from a website called “unconfirmed sources” which has the following disclaimer on their website.  See, I’ve said for years that Deadbeat is an idiot. This proves my point.

In case you didn’t get it, none of the stories are real.

It’s all fake.

We made it all up.

It’s satire.

The people might be real but the quotes are not.

If it gets you mad, get a life.(see first amendment)

Some definitions of satire

A literary work which exposes and ridicules human vices or folly. Historically perceived as tending toward didacticism, it is usually intended as a moral criticism directed against the injustice of social wrongs. It may be written with witty jocularity or with anger and bitterness. Sidelight: Satiric poets often utilize irony, hyperbole, understatement, and paradox, as in Pope’s An Epistle to Dr. Arbuthnot . (See also Burlesque, Goliardic Poetry, Hudibrastic Verse, Lampoon, Mock Epic, Parody, Pasquinade) (Compare Antiphrasis)
