PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is a PPT file that explains the difference between satirical humor and parody. Students often have trouble distinguishing between the two. This PPT breaks it down in easy, student friendly terms. I used it to preview Saki's short story, "The Storyteller"

I found this PowerPoint to be a little confusing. Under "Parody" both of these descriptions are given: "Cuts deep to make bleed. Causes pain on the subject." and "Parody is just for fun, for fun’s sake." "Pure entertainment."

Those seem contradictory, unless we're talking about sadism. Also, The Simpsons (no apostrophe) is listed as an example of parody when it is in fact pure satire, so is Family Guy. I won't be able to use this because it is inaccurate.
