No? No clues?


He is probably referring to the "line" wherein a satire morphs into sarcasm owing to the reader's interpretation.

[quote="nakatago"]A guy like this isn't helping why a rape festival was used in satire:

Quote:
The director of the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), Ranjit Sinha, on Tuesday made out a case for legalising betting in sports, arguing “if you can’t prevent rape, enjoy it”

I thought there is a very thin line between satire and sarcasm. Though both make fun of the follies in the society satire in general evokes a positive response whereas sarcasm could evoke a negative response as well. While dealing with sensitive topics like rape it could go either way depending on the reader's interpretation.
