For the second--ridicule is neither necessary nor effective in fostering debate, no matter how hilarious some of the spoofs/'art'/Onion articles/cartoons are. What do you gain from ridicule that you can't gain from a reasonable debate?
A good joke very often gets peoples' attention far more easily than a serious article. Of course it has its downsides, but it also definetley has its positives.
