What is satire?

“Satire is a genre of literature in which vices, follies, abuses, and shortcomings are held up to ridicule, ideally with the intent of shaming individuals, corporations, government or society itself, into improvement. Although satire is usually meant to be humorous, its greater purpose is often constructive social criticism, using wit to draw attention to both particular and wider issues in society. . . . For its nature and social role, satire has enjoyed in many societies a special freedom license to mock prominent individuals and institutions.”—Wikipedia
