What is satire?
Types of Satire

The Cleveland Show
The Cleveland Show mocks African-American culture in the United States.
American Dad mocks American culture with the classic trophy wife and 2 1/2 kid family with a baby who never grows up, a teenage daughter advocate for change and an awkward middle child.
South Park mocks American culture as well, but in a very absurd way. The humor in South Park is rather inappropriate but it mocks real-life events that take place in America.
Beavis and Butthead
One day, while Winny the Horse and Bell Cow were doing their jobs and collecting the infants bred from the humans, they heard an excruciatingly loud scream. "Please, Benjamin Cow! Spare me some mercy, please!" The women rushed towards the pleads of help to see what was going on.
When they arrived to the feeding troughs, they saw Parker the Pig laying in one and being eaten by the humans surrounding him. "I gave you plenty of warnings, yet you still insist on stealing from my farm!" Benjamin Cow mooed furiously.
After hearing what had been going on, the health department shut down the farm. Benjamin Cow remained in prison while the women got a nice apartment together downtown and worked at the local diner, selling human burgers to get by.
