Transcript of Parody Satire
Check These Examples
How It Is Used
Parody - Humorous imitation of a usually serious piece or work. It is often used to make fun of or offend others. Parody will often copy the style and ideas of the original work that is being mimicked.
“What’s the use you learning to do right, when it’s troublesome to do right and isn’t no trouble to do wrong, and the wages is just the same?” (Chap 16)
“There warn’t anybody at the church, except maybe a hog or two, for there warn’t any lock on the door, and hogs likes a puncheon floor in summer-time because it’s cool. If you notice, most folks don’t go to church only when they’ve got to; but a hog is different.” (Chap 18)
The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn
Political Satire of Stephen Colbert
“Tomorrow you're all going to wake up in a brave new world, a world where the Constitution gets trampled by an army of terrorist clones, created in a stem-cell research lab run by homosexual doctors who sterilize their instruments over burning American flags. Where tax-and-spend Democrats take all your hard-earned money and use it to buy electric cars for National Public Radio, and teach evolution to illegal immigrants. Oh, and everybody's high!”
Parody is very widespread in the modern world, but it has probably been around since before the late 1500's. Writer's do not use parody to inspire any kind of change. It is simply used to copy and mock others for enjoyment.
I'm sure you can tell, parody is a
very popular form of comedy.
Satire-the use of humor, irony, exaggeration, or ridicule to expose and criticize people's stupidity or vices, particularly in the context of contemporary politics and other topical issues. Satire often uses references to other pieces of work or events instead of copying the style of the piece like parody.

Style or literary device
Just because humor is typically associated with satire doesn't mean satire cannot exist without it. In many cases, satirical works are not humorous at all, but, in fact, are strictly used for ethical and moral restructuring.
Unlike a parody, a satire is not a genre but a literary device. Authors and storytellers use satire to enhance a specific purpose within a novel, movie, or playwright.
-Novel consisting of satirical statements and ideas.
