For the kids in here who want to read the true pinnacle of satire, instead of occupying themselves with shit like Twilight and City of Ember and all that other crap that kids are reading nowadays, please read Johnathon Swift's hilarious essay, "A Modest Proposal: For Preventing the Children of Poor People in Ireland from Being a Burden to Their Parents or Country, and for Making Them Beneficial to the Public"

I'm sure the majority of people in here have read this(or at least, I hope so. I read this years ago.), but if you haven't, then do so immediately.

I've read this in my AP class. At first, I didn't even know he was implying eating children XD. I usually miss these kinds of things until the last moment. My friend told me that, and I was so surprised!

Swift was a genius, and his "modest" proposal shall be forever praised as the classical example of satire. I think everyone should read this as a mandatory part of English class.

That being said, learn how to spell his name properly, lol.
