Don't think that I can fully agree with this oft-stated view - it's not as simple as that surely. Sometimes it may celebrate but that's not always the case and definitely not the full story - even if yuppies love anti-yuppie satire it hardly increased their standing in the eyes of others."Well, yes and no. Satire always seems to appear to attack, but in fact celebrates the things it despises, if not in the eye of its creators then certainly in the eyes of its targets. Yuppies love anti-yuppie satire, no?"
