Abstract

The Oxford English Dictionary defines satire as:"The employment in speaking or writing of sarcasm, irony, ridicule, etc. in denouncing, exposing or deriding vice, faulty, abuses, or evils of any kind." That is fine if a little flavorless but then most dictionary definitions are. Most but not all.
