Friday 3-13-09

We looked at all the dates that will create a conflict. See Smith if there is a major conflict.
Do your assignments ahead of time if you are going to be absent.
Two types of Satire:
Happy, based on Roman character Horace, witty, makes fun of humanity, optimistic, indulgent
Examples: Bill Cosby, Saturday Night Live, the Daily Show, The Simpsons, South Park, Family Guy
Intent: happy, fun hearted
Evil, characterized by contempt, criticizes error, pessimistic, vice and error, harsh, real
Intent: sarcastic, mocking, critical
Commonality: humor
Satirical devices: Absurdity, exaggeration, understatement, parody, wit or word play, Euphemism, irony
Think About:
What’s the point???????
What is the role of responsibility as a result of consequences?
The price of progress… What are we willing to give up in order to move forward?
We watched the Simpsons. We will discuss it on Wednesday of next week.
Get a copy of Brave New World for sure by Wednesday
