Understanding satire

Satire is...

the act of making fun of something or someone in order to expose stupidity or immorality.

One television show that displays satire is The Office. It displays satire by using irony and humor to make fun of issues that people face in a corporate office environment. The humor used in The Office is very sarcastic and entertaining which makes the show more fun to watch.

The cartoon I drew is satirical because it shows a boy texting and reading an article about the dangers of texting and driving as he is about to step into traffic because he's looking at his phone and not paying attention to his surroundings.
