It is perhaps the most English of humor, satire, that sets us free.  To ability laugh at danger, political crisis, personal failures and a faltering economy is without doubt an egg or beans greatest asset.  Satire frees the mind, it asks us to remove ourselves from the reality of our observations and take a slanted look at now.  Satire gives us alternative perspective, makes us aware of pluralistic nature of now.  Matt in the Telegraph does not ask ask readers to stray to far from familiar pipe and slippers, where as David Shrigly pushes us further from our own safe zones.  Shock and and sensation compliments wit and wisdom.  
Were can I find this nest of satire?  BBC Radio 4.  The Now Show 
If satire is not forthcoming there is always wonderfully offencive stuff.
Jon Holmes lines this week were very good...
"Obama got in trouble this week because his pastor sad the '9-11 was chickens coming home to roost'; no, that wrong, they were aeroplanes"
"What is Heather mills going to do with £23 million, spend it on shoe?"
