Even better, Mara, it’s satire!
But if it left you speechless, or uncomfortable, I surely succeeded:
Satire is, by definition, offensive. It is meant to make us feel uncomfortable. It is meant to make us scratch our heads, think, do a double-take, and then think again. — Maajid Nawaz
The other difference between my post and supermarket tabloid reading is that the National Enquirer makes a ton of money for phony stories. I make no money for 100% genuine satire.
I know, I know, Mara, it’s not fair.
