Part 1

Write a satirical essay addressing a problem in your community (any topic but abortion rights is OFF limits for this essay).

When topic is chosen this is what to include:

  1. What are the arguments on either side?
  2. What logical, ethical, and emotional appeals are used?
  3. Who are the key figures in the debate
  4. Use a minimum of four quotes, properly cited (MLA)

Then, propose a ridiculous solution to the problem. Proceed with your paper by using logical, ethical, and emotional appeals to make a SATIRICAL case as to why your ridiculous solution is the “best” solution.

Essay should be written in a satirical tone, in the way that swift does in Modest Proposal. It needs to be between 500 and 1200 words.

All three of the following satirical devices must be used:

  1. Exaggeration or hyperbole
  2. Understatement
  3. Irony or Sarcasm
