    How is Frank Zappa not on this list? Everything he did was satire!

    Seriously – Zappa amongst the likes of Twain, Rabelais, and Bierce? You should read Twain, Rabelais, and Bierce, until you realize he's not even in their leagues.

    Where is Voltaire? I thought he'd be at the top of this list.

    Great list…I learnt heaps from reading it .

    Charlie Chaplin would be a good inclusion also. His send up of Hitler is probably one of the best known examples of satire

    you’re all forgetting the true master… Shakespeare. This style was abundant in so many of his pieces and one of the best examples i can think of is mark antony’s “but Brutus was an honorable man” speech. Shakespeare wins nqa
