Live to win

Till you die, till the sun sets in your eye, something something something something, live to win. A couple days ago I watched the "Make Love, Not Warcraft" episode of South Park and it was frankly, completely hilarious. But what I liked a lot about it was that it was an affectionate satire. Too many satires are done filled with venom and bitterness, but I tend to enjoy satires that avoid demonization, that appreciate the good points of what they're satirizing all the while laughing at the bad parts. Just being mean is well just being mean, but being able to love something while laughing at it takes more talent and usually comes out a whole lot better than the cheap snide quip.
