Journal #3: Look back over the comedy terms sheet. Look up terms that you may not have a good grasp on. Write about these terms in light of The Simpsons. What type(s) of comedy is The Simpsons ? What comedic tools do they use? Within satiric comedy, there is direct satire. Within direct satire there is Horation Satire and Juvenalian Satire. Horation Satire is something like a smartass announcer, who basically finds things to say to piss off others. Of course what he says is funny and true, but we don’t really want to hear it. Juvenalian Satire is the serious announcer, who pisses others off and is seriously asking for it. Indirect satire is presented through The Simpsons characters rather than the announcer himself/herself. Comedy of manners is not really apparent in The Simpsons because there are few in the city of Springfield that is upper-class. Mr. Burns and possible the mayor of Springfield can be considered upper- class, though much of their content is not on the “wit and sparkle of the dialogue.” (Syllabus) Didactic literature is designed to instruct the viewers. This is commonly found in Southpark , where the characters and ideas take a more straight-forward approach.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
