Too Stupid for Satire: Manufactured outrage

Being a big fan of the Three Minute Philosophy series, I decided to see what else Australian philosophy-summarizer S. Peter Davis (apparently a real person, not a Monty Python character) was doing with his life.

Turns out part of it has been spent defending himself after someone failed to understand satire:

As someone who works in the media and loves satire (and often wishes it could be the other way around), I found this a good cautionary tale. So read it, you *^^&$!
