wildrose: I thought the skit was pretty funny. It was legitimate satire and the production was high quality. Nothing to complain about at all. Only narrow-minded nimrods would have anything negative to say about the skit!

SATIRE. Definitely satire and very good satire at that. In fact, this exactly the type of humor I enjoy most. Hopefully the BBC keeps up the good work and they crank out more videos like this!

This was posted to one of the board meeting threads, but it fits perfectly into this thread too.

Teacher Trial: That might seem like it's in poor taste to some people, but I say that it's socially relevant satire for a number of reasons. I could list the reasons, but the only thing that really matters is that it's funny as heck!

I like socially edgy satire as long as it's intelligently written, but if it's snarky and not terribly funny, then I'm not so sure about it. No objection, just not sure it's worth watching in that case.

Oh No. There Are Kids At This Party.
Not very realistic, but funny and probably in poor taste.
