Political Satire. Or, how to politely make people go away.
Making political jokes is one way to break the ice with people. It’s also an effective technique for making people go away. Nobody likes it when you say to someone, ‘please go away, I find you annoying’, so what I do instead is make enough political jokes and references that they’ll go away on their own accord.
Anyway, as for political comedy, I’m not really sure how to do it. The people with all the political power in this world are generally the worse possible candidates. If you really want funny polital jokes, read the headlines of the Politics section of a newspaper. When it comes to political satire, I’m afraid Wrongcards cannot compete with examples from reality.
