This can be seen in Scene 1, where Rita is struggling to get in past the worse-for-wear door. When she eventually makes it in she says 'It's that stupid bleedin' handle on the door. You wanna get it fixed!'. This creates comedy because she is putting Frank in his place, telling him exactly what she thinks of the door and giving him orders like a teacher would do. What makes this more comedic is the fact that this is the first time she and Frank have met; these are the first words Rita says face to face with Frank.
After using Marla’s mother into the homemade soap him and Tyler are creating without her permission, the narrator starts feeling an amount of guilt and regret.

She uses different numbers and awards to show how devoted the shows fans are and how well the show is actually doing. Peacocke talks about her own struggle with the shows offensive humor but then now she realizes the use of humor in the jokes. The author uses different segments of the show to show how although the jokes are, at first glance, offensive the hidden meaning is simply "pointing out the weaknesses and defects of U.S. society in a mocking and sometimes intolerable way." (263). Antonia Peacocke uses short parts of from different authors to shape her argument, agreeing with some and pointing fun at others.
They teach us to not be offended by the slurs which make us feel embarrassed and hence we have attitudinal change. This is another reason why sitcoms are effective. Seinfeld usually has two or three stories in the story which are the main focuses. In the “Pez Dispenser” episode there are three stories, Elaine laughing at Jerry’s Pez dispenser in a musical performance, the second Kramer’s Cologne Idea and the third Jerry’s friend’s drug addiction. Throughout the three stories the conflict escalates and the confusion rises until the storylines meet together and are usually resolved in a hilarious way.

His continuous irony throughout “A Modest Proposal” allows him to indirectly present his proposition, which is mostly confusing until the reader becomes educated with his style of writing. By choosing to use irony so often in his essay, Swift is able to illustrate to his audience just how extreme Ireland’s poverty conditions have gotten. With his use of sarcasm, Swift creates the impression that he is truly sincere and sympathetic towards the poor families who are constantly begging, but behind his satirical intentions he is actually meaning the opposite. Frequently in his essay, he portrayed irony when describing his “modest” proposal, that the carcass of one year olds would be profitable. Swift emphasizes his proposal’s advantage of preventing abortions, then clearly conveys irony when he contradicts this benefit three paragraphs later by reassuring his audience that he has been informed a “well-nursed” child “…is at a year old a most delicious, nourishing, and wholesome food, whether stewed, roasted, baked, or boiled…”(Swift 1026).
He is younger than Hulga. When he arrives to sell his bibles at the Hopewell home he presents himself as a pious soul with a devotion to missionary work. As he tells his story to the gullable Mrs. Hopewell, he tells her that he is a simple, country boy, with a heart condition. Like a key in a lock, the words from Mr. Pointer cause Mrs. Hopewell to invite him to dinner. Hulga over hears much of this conversation and tells her mother to “get rid of the salt of the earth.” (p.465) Hulga is suspicious of Manly, yet Mrs. Hopewell can only think about possibility of the yong man being a positive influence on her daughter.
Donne, living in the pious Jacobean era, and hiionships with others.

In At round earth’s imagin’d corners , he utilises the Petrarchan sonnet form, with the octet conveying his dilemma and the sestet providing a solution. In the octet he makes Biblical allusions to the Day of Judgement, wherein those who have died from are to ‘arise from death’ and be judged.

In the novel, Vonnegut created a new religion called Bokononism, “a religion built on lies, absurdity, and irony”. The reader is even encouraged to "live by the foma [harmless untruths] that make you brave and kind and healthy and happy" (Vonnegut, Cat's Cradle, Page 2). Bokononism serves as a satire of every major religion in the world. Despite this negative depiction of religion though, the novel actually considered it more preferable than science as the latter takes a very aggressive stance in its pursuit of truth, disregarding the consequences of such an
