Laughter is not an essential component of satire; in fact there are types of satire, which are not intended to be "fun" at all. Popular contemporary use of the term "satire" is often very imprecise. While satire often uses caricature and parody, by no means are all uses of these or other humorous devices.
Humor is found across the world to make people happier, but humor can also contain some deeper meanings. Whether it's in a skit, film, or even cartoon, humorists quite often hint at more mature topics. Serious topics are easier to talk about when they are surrounded by humor.

Mothers are typically seen as kind, loving, and nurturing, at least in a perfect world, that’s how they are. Rather, in the real world many of us wish that is how all mothers are. Various situations can lead to a woman to be too mothering. It is a factor that transcends real life. This conflict causing dynamic is very prevalent in numerous stories, films, and plays. Two plays where it is shown in significance are Machinal and The Glass Menagerie. In both cases, the actions taken by the mother roles in the shows, resulted in some of the character’s roles ending in unfortunate events of some sort.

While Isabella never made a joke during our interview, I did get the sense that she understands how humor works. When I asked her what she liked most about herself, one of the things she mentioned was that she liked how funny she is. She said, “Well some people think I’m funny, but some people say ‘You’re not funny, you’re just kinda funny.’” This leads me to believe that while some might not find her hilarious, she still understands how
Humor is viewed by some people as an important part of life. Most people enjoy amusement, and some turn to humorists as a source for that amusement. Some further view humorists as holding an important position in society because society allows humorists to say things that others can and will not say.

Furthermore, humor can very well have a dangerous side, whether intentional or unintentional, so humorists should try to be careful with their powerful position.

The once in a lifetime celebration of a baby’s laugh is determine by their wellbeing and identity of their character as they become an adult. I was told this as a lesson by my grandmother who once said it was our cultural gathering with family and friends. Later, there was a newborn baby in our family named Erin who had dark brown hair, light brown eyes, and was always fidgety due to all her nieces, cousins, and sisters because they play, tickle, and made those silly embarrassing faces that even adults make themselves that brought out their childish side.

An example of this is when Mark is trying to construct a potato farm on Mars. “Yeah. This all sounds like a great idea with no chance of catastrophic failure. That was all sarcasm, by the way” (Weir, 40). Weir adds sarcasm in parts of the story where people are in tons of danger, or, in this case, going to die, to break the suspense and add some humor.
