satire     1: a literary work holding up human vices and follies to ridicule or scorn     2: trenchant wit, irony, or sarcasm used to expose and discredit vice or folly.”  Merriam Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary 1035 (10th ed. 2002).

“I am always excited and think I am about to see some great and epic satire and commentary every time I read a pleading which begins ‘COMES NOW...’, a letter which begins ‘Enclosed herewith please find...’ or contract which uses ‘said’ frequently. I am always disappointed when I realize it's intended to be a serious document.” Dan Hull, What About Paris? (Jan. 16, 2009).
