Someone Want To Explain To Me What's So Funny About Satire

Okay, it's a cartoon. Cartoons are supposed to be funny. I get that. But usually you at least get a caption underneath that tells you why it's funny. The New Yorker cartoon didn't even give us a "Git 'er done" or a "Wha-a-at?" or in this case, "Black People In The White House And They're Not The Help."

How in the world is anybody supposed to get that this thing is a joke?

I know funny, and I can tell you right now, having a Negro Muslim and his angry terrorist-militant wife in the Oval Office isn't what anyone would ever think is funny. At least no one I know. It isn't even a decent "Family Circus." Now there's something that's funny. Why? Because so much of what that guy draws could happen. A black president who burns the American flag or thinks the Koran is our bible? That could never happen. Not in my country. Not where people have died in another country fighting for the right to have the red, white and blue to fly in that country so they won't be able to fly it over here, or something like that.

A lot of people in New York - not just Jews - Americans too, think this satire thing goes over the head of people like me. But even if I was taller... READ THE REST OF THE STORY HERE.
