Marking your satire as “satire” used to be a thing editors did. It was both a contextualizer and a nod to the reader’s intelligence. Playboy’s Table of Contents used to have things labeled as “humor” “satire” “article” etc.

It’s a lost artform and really too bad since satire can be powerful.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
