Comfort of World Cup 2022 fans my priority, claims Nepalese worker

DOHA: The need for football fans to enjoy the 2022 FIFA World Cup in comfort and without sweat stains is a key objective for Nepalese labourer Raju Agarwal.

In response to a report predicting 4,000 worker deaths before the first whistle of the competition, Agarwal said the labourers’ sacrifice would be worth it if visiting supporters from around the world could be spared moist armpits.

“I live in a metal box with twelve other men, toil all day in the blazing heat and last week four colleagues died in various work-related incidents,” said Agarwal.

“But if it means fair-skinned punters from the northern hemisphere can watch the sport they love without ruining their weight in handkerchiefs, those deaths were not in vain.”

    Sadly, this has a very true ring to it!

    That isn’t even funny, I usually enjoy your satire! But this story sadly is probably more accurate than you think!

    It doesn’t have to make you laugh. Sorry.

    Satire is a genre of literature, and sometimes graphic and performing arts, in which vices, follies, abuses, and shortcomings are held up to ridicule, ideally with the intent of shaming individuals, corporations, government or society itself, into improvement. Although satire is usually meant to be humorous, its greater purpose is often constructive social criticism, using wit as a weapon and as a tool to draw attention to both particular and wider issues in society.

    A feature of satire is strong irony or sarcasm – “in satire, irony is militant” – but parody, burlesque, exaggeration, juxtaposition, comparison, analogy, and double entendre are all frequently used in satirical speech and writing. This “militant” irony or sarcasm often professes to approve of (or at least accept as natural) the very things the satirist wishes to attack.
