Unemployed Satirist

Check out Theodore Dalrymple's article "bureaucratically speaking" in Taki's Mag It includes the gem "My late friend, the distinguished economist Peter Bauer, used to say that "the only true unemployment in the modern world was among satirists, for the world had grown so ridiculous that what was intended as satire was either a description of what already existed or a prophecy of what would soon come to exist."
