Famous quotes containing the word satirical:

    The satirical rogue says here that old men have grey beards,
    that their faces are wrinkled, their eyes purging thick amber
    and plum-tree gum, and that they have a plentiful lack of wit,
    together with most weak hams.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
