What is the name or identifier for the idea that says it is impossible to actually satirise something without that satire being confused by some people actually taking it as "truth" (whatever that word means now)?
This example illustrates what I am talking about.

It looks like Horseman Bree's question has been answered! Therefore, I am closing this thread.

Just a friendly reminder, we have a thread dedicated to random questions!
