Introducing and please welcome NOAH. Newest to debut in our topics and categories is our “NOAH,” news one and half, the satire journal, the comic and satire on politics, events and objects, personalities included, with pun always an intention.
In Bicol, we refer to its undertone with “Borobentot, an tamaan dai maangot.” It is turning an empty bottle belly flat down on the table whoever gets pointed head on please don’t get mad.
As an added note, The article or post you read on NOAH postings:(1) Is/Are full of half truth(s) and more with satire tone for amusement and comic purpose only.
There is no real intention to malign or cause any harm on events, office, agency and personality(ies) mentioned or referred or alluded to. Fact(s) get highlight when button SHOW FACTS is selected.
(2)It is RED FLAGged by the editor, for while it is REAL NEWS, (a) has no need editing as in itself is a satire already, or, (b) has a significant undiscussed implication(s).
The idea first came into form with this initial post on Testing the waters, adding the taste of satire on posts.
Quoting Wikipedia verbatim here:
Satire is a genre of literature, and sometimes graphic and performing arts, in which vices, follies, abuses, and shortcomings are held up to ridicule, ideally with the intent of shaming individuals, corporations, government or society itself, into improvement.
Although satire is usually meant to be humorous, its greater purpose is often constructive social criticism, using wit to draw attention to both particular and wider issues in society.
A feature of satire is strong irony or sarcasm—”in satire, irony is militant”[ but parody, burlesque, exaggeration, juxtaposition, comparison, analogy, and double entendre are all frequently used in satirical speech and writing.
This “militant” irony or sarcasm often professes to approve of (or at least accept as natural) the very things the satirist wishes to attack. Satire is nowadays found in many artistic forms of expression, including literature, plays, commentary, television shows, and media such as lyrics.
Go ahead, PLAY with the buttons whether what you read is TRUE or NOT.
Do please look forward to a regular treat on this. Happy reading, then.
