BURLESQUE
[ Also see Satire ]

Often most telling and often most unfair; stimulated by want of a juster argument.
      - William R. Alger

A burlesque word is often a powerful sermon.
      - Nicolas Boileau-Despreaux

The keenest of political weapons.
      - William Cullen Bryant

What caricature is in painting, burlesque is in writing; and in the same manner the comic writer and painter correlate to each other; as in the former, the painter seems to have the advantage, so it is in the latter infinitely on the side of the writer. For the monstrous is much easier to paint than describe, and the ridiculous to describe than paint.
      - Henry Fielding

The guerilla weapon of political warfare.
      - Horace Greeley

It is a sin to be a mocker.
      - William Shakespeare

Satire is the right hand of burlesque.
      - Voltaire (Francois Marie Arouet Voltaire)
