pop culture example
Pop-Culture Example
  • "Support the ERA? Sure, when the women start paying for the drinks! Hah! Hah!"
  • This is mockery because when couples go on dates, men are usually the ones who pay. The ERA is the Equal Rights Act and this is mocking it saying that if women want equal rights then they can start buying the drinks.
the crucible examples
The Crucible Examples
  • Pg. 214, Act 3
  • Danforth: “Oh it is a proper lawyer! Do you wish me to declare the court in full session here or will you give me a good reply?”
  • This quote is mocking Giles Corey because he said he didn’t need a lawyer to defend him in court because he had been to court so many times he knew the rules. Danforth is mocking him about this by calling him a “proper lawyer” because Corey said he did not have to answer him because the court was not in session.
the crucible examples1
The Crucible Examples
  • Pg 217, Act 3
  • Parris: “Why could there not have been poppets hid where no one ever saw them?”
  • Paris is mocking Danforth and the other men going from house to house asking if they have poppets and so forth because they act like they can’t hide the poppets where no one can see them. If they are hid, they won’t know if they have them or not. He is being a smart elic and mocking the other men.
