People say satire is dead. It's not dead; it's alive and living in the White House. Robin Williams
'As Long As I Know I'm Getting Paid' is a satire. Lyrically, I want to be direct. With my history in Fall Out Boy, there's some expectation that I'm going to be lyrically obtuse. But that song is a straight-faced satire of consumerism. Patrick Stump
Good satire comes from anger. It comes from a sense of injustice, that there are wrongs in the world that need to be fixed. And what better place to get that well of venom and outrage boiling than a newsroom, because you're on the front lines. Carl Hiaasen
It's a great time to be doing political satire when the world is on a knife edge. John Oliver
You can't debate satire. Either you get it or you don't. Michael Moore
