3U: Questioning and Satire

Stephen_Colbert_by_David_ShankboneI will give you five minutes to finish your scripts from Friday. In the remaining time, you will become satirists. You will poke fun at the ridiculous and the ill-conceived. Since this teacher’s overview is so effective, let’s start  here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PuvjDK3mpA0

Once we have a better understanding of satire, we will watch this clip; be prepared to tell me how it is satirical:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7L2fsubA2-c.

Finally, I want you to write a 200 word satire of something worth ridiculing. Sarcasm is encouraged.
