    The monkeys will never be at bard level but they do a pretty passable first draft of mid-season “Different Strokes”. They watched a n interview with Tarantino and insist on yellow legal pads.

    It seems satire could be at its best when it strives to tell the truth (by not deducing the target of the satire to a strawman) more so than it aims to make a point (avoiding simply trying to win a crowd).

    Is that even possible, though, or does it remove all humor? Best examples of high forms of satire?

    I get it though, satire is by design making fun of something or someone, so to ask if there's a way to do it unoffensively make in fact be a bit of an oxymoron.
