Comic playwright of Athens.
“You have all the characteristics of a popular politician: a horrible voice, bad breeding and a vulgar manner.”
“An example of her early satirical work is Love and Freindship (1789; yes, the misspelling is original), which poked fun at the mainstream sensibility/romantic novels of the time. Austen’s The History of England (1791) is a parody of popular textbooks of her time. Sample text: “Henry the 4th ascended the throne of England much to his own satisfaction in the year 1399, after having prevailed on his cousin & predecessor Richard the 2nd, to resign it to him, & to retire for the rest of his Life to Pomfret Castle, where he happened to be murdered.” (ref)
“The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is one of his most significant works. The book satirizes the attitudes and traditions of Southern society” (ref)
Because Kafka could never get along with his family and was always mistreated by them, he went on satirizing the idea of the cruelty of family and to prove his point he turns his main character Gregor into a bug to show his worthlessness to everyone just as any insect is to a person.(ref)
“Bill Murray is the king of sarcasm -- the ultimate smart-ass who's quicker, brighter and funnier than you and knows it. He'll rub it in your face without you even registering it, and if you're the kind of person who doesn't pick up on his sarcasm, you're exactly who he's making fun of. Murray has mastered his withering deadpan sarcasm in a series of film roles, from Stripes to Ghostbusters to Quick Change to Groundhog Day, and has built a career on being the best there is at being insincere.” (ref)
Brian is born on the original Christmas, in the stable next door. He spends his life being mistaken for a messiah.
