People say satire is dead. It's not dead; it's alive and living in the White House. Robin Williams
All satire is blind to the forces liberated by decay. Which is why total decay has absorbed the forces of satire. Theodor Adorno
Popular culture bombards us with examples of animals being humanized for all sorts of purposes, ranging from education to entertainment to satire to propaganda. Walt Disney, for example, made us forget that Mickey is a mouse, and Donald a duck. George Orwell laid a cover of human societal ills over a population of livestock. Frans de Waal
If you're going to get into social criticism with absurdity and satire, you can't be politically correct when you do that. John Cusack
Satire also allows you to make fun of every different aspect. It allows you to make fun of both sides. It allows you to make fun of everything, really, so you can do it in a harmless way. Neill Blomkamp
