Description:


had to write "satire" piece for class...my attempt, and possible failure - please tell me what you think and if you find it the least bit...satirical?


I'm so Ironic




I’m lost. I’m completely fucking lost. After spending countless hours on Google searching for the perfect ironic topic to attack, make fun of, spit at – whatever – I have come up with nothing. Google was absolutely no help to me at all. Fuck Google. I thought I would get something decent after typing in “how to write satire,” but I didn’t – most of what came up were self-proclaimed satirist who amused me even less than Carlos Mencia, and that, let me tell you, is hard to do. The somewhat decent articles I read, I didn’t understand. I wouldn’t consider myself stupid, but by no means am I a genius, or a satirist, obviously. While reading many of these politically driven satire pieces, using big words and bitter sarcastic undertones, I found myself getting more confused than I originally was. After avoiding the technical approach of finding out the truth behind satire and what it really was, which could have possibly turned into the philosophical approach, I decided to end my web browsing experience.
Total elapsed time: 3 hrs and 21 minutes. Should I be embarrassed about that?
Maybe my lack of a good topic is not my inability to be creative. Maybe I’m just too damn creative. You know when you have so many ideas floating around in your head; you don’t know where to star? Fuck me sideways, that’s my problem! Instead of reading other satirical pieces and learning from them, I could read ‘em, soak ‘em up and make fun of them! That’s satire, right? Being a politics minor, I know nothing about politics, so screw writing a witty attack on the government, how about writing a witty attack on those who attack the government through their witty writings. Genius. Or how about pop culture and entertainment? There is so much wild and crazy stuff going on right now in the world of the rich ‘n famous. How about Britany Spears? She’s always fun to make fun of. Or even better, how about I try (“try” being the KEY word) writing a farcical discourse on me not knowing what to write about, when in reality, it IS what I’m writing about, and try to be all slapstick and gelastic and other words that probably don’t make sense in this sentence, and add a few “fucks” here and there for the dramatic effect? Fuck, I’m going with the latter.

  This is so cute. Your frustration is palpable! I like it personally, I have a research paper that's really going to crap because I have the same problem. I feel you.
