Sadly, Not Everyone “Gets” Political Satire (16 Fails)

Political satire misses the mark often. Then again, sometimes it’s the reader who’s missing the point. Our friends over at r/atetheonion are doing the Lord’s work by compiling photos of people who didn’t get the joke. Whatever your political affiliation, it’s fun to see people on the other side (or maybe your own side) failing to comprehend satire. Look, there’s a reason Joe Biden starts so many sentences with “C’mon. Look…” He does it because people miss the point all the time. Remember: Read. Reread. Check the source.
