The art of sarcasm typically directed from events that take place in the world. Much like a caricature of the human race. Usually it is done through comedy, but sometimes it is just as serious as the event itself. South Park is know for its satirical episodes. The Terry Schiavo case being one that sticks out.
Someone: "Did you see the South Park episode about the people coming back from the future and taking all the jobs away from the citizens because they worked for much less?"

Somebody: "Yes, it was chock full of satire about people complaining of immigrants and outsourcing."

Originally, satire was a literary form in which the author used irony, sarcasm, and allied rhetorical devices to express indignation against perceived social vices, follies, or oppressions, and to hold the perpetrators up to ridicule and contempt. In the heyday of the National Lampoon, satire meant calling somebody an asshole. Currently, it consists of people submitting definitions to Urban Dictionary in which they call each other gay, retarded, or both.
I'd rather be gay and retarded than the sort of person whose idea of satire is calling someone else gay and retarded. I'd be more likely to get laid.

"You wouldn't know satire if it walked up to you on the street bare naked, bit your ass, and then proceeded to put on a rainbow colored afro wig and started jumping up and down singing 'The time to get a clue is now!'"
Satire and Comedy can coexist. Quite happily, I might add.

A way of comedy, this way of comedy is when the person using it is either not serious and plays a role or it can be seen as 'rude' comedy
Did you see that new FilthyFrank video? That was pure satire.
