The Importance of Being Sarcastic

Sarcasm. Often maligned. Often misunderstood.

Sarcasm is a powerful tool. When used properly, sarcasm opens the mind. It gives us the power to speak our mind and say what we think, free from the restraints of social decorum. Sarcasm enables us to discuss and contemplate important topics that would be uncomfortable or even painful under normal circumstances.

Why do we laugh at such terrible things? Because comedy is often the sarcastic realization of inescapable tragedy.
- Bryant McGill

Sadly, despite its effectiveness, sarcasm is rarely ever utilized effectively. Instead, it has sadly been left by the wayside in favor of ignoring important issues all together.

It is because we believe in the power of sarcasm that we are starting this Medium blog. The purpose of this blog will be to satirize works of fiction, non-fiction, and the culture at large, in the hope that we can influence the lives of others and change the way that they look at the world.

We are the Gentlemen Satire. And yes… we’re totally serious.
