I really like laughing at autistic jokes. This failed on every possible level.

Mods, as someone who can snicker at the occasional Holocaust joke, I find this horrible, stupid, and offensive, at pretty much every level.

Regardless of whether the author is on the autism spectrum, this is just bad and should be redlit. I mean, too-bad-for-FarkTV bad.

Then one of my researchers said to me one day, 'Why not simply remove the autism from the victim?'

Satire: "You know, we've been driving food to you here in Africa for 100 years now, and it occurred to us, there wouldn't be world hunger if you would just MOVE TO WHERE THE FOOD IS! YOU LIVE IN A DESERT! NOTHING IS GONNA GROW HERE? You see this here? This is sand. You know what it's going to be in 100 years? IT'S STILL GONNA BE SAND! NOTHING GROWS IN IT! MOVE TO WHERE THE FOOD IS! Jesus christ we've got deserts in America too but WE DON'T FARKING LIVE IN THEM!! Tell you what, We'll even give you a ride!."

"Satire": Lets cure autism so we can rape babies.

The only way that story could have been worse was if at the end the punch line was

"We're the autistocrats"

moel: Is it just me, or has satire turned to ABSOLUTE shiat.

I've seen more crappy stories in the last week, than I have in the last 2 years... I for one intend to open my own satirical site to combat this utter dearth of shiate thats being shovelled at me now.


People think satire means "EAT THE BABBIES BECAUSE IT'S FUNNY AND UNREASONABLE" not, "Here's a legitimate problem, and here's a unrealistic solution that works in theory, but is actually horrific in scope."

See: the dumbass who made "Kill Mitt Romney" and "I support the guys who killed a cop in Philly" pages and started bleating about satire the moment the police charged him. Seriously. It's not satire. Do not taint the good names of Jonathan Swift and The Onion with your shiat.

For me, the funniest part of this link was the fact that they had an ad on the bottom for their own site. It said you could write satire and the top writer got $100 a month. To top that great offer, if you click on the ad, the next page tells you that they discontinued giving the $100 away.

That was a bad article, and not really the kind of shiat I come to fark for; oh and I'm on the expressway to hell with the next guy, but that was just bad.
Green, I am dissapoint.

I have a solution also. Revise the definition again. Maybe split it into more specific problems, that way someone can claim X change to health care or environmental standards has reduced autism.

They didn't even properly establish a humorous premise.
