Vocabulary – Satire

Satire: the use of irony, sarcasm, ridicule, or the like, in exposing, denouncing, or deriding vice, folly, etc.

A picture is worth a thousand words. A video clip is worth a million.

Below is an example of satire. Today is US President GW Bush’s last day at the White House. Observe the sarcasm and ridicule played out.
