To pass the test a machine will need to have a sophisticated knowledge of human behaviour to impress judges by adding quirks such as wrong answers and typing errors to appear more human. The capability to fake being human, rather than exhibiting true intelligence goes against the spirit of the Turing test (Legg and Hutter, 2007). The Turing test is also fundamentally unreliable as it depends on human judges to decide on classifying a test subject as a human or machine. This has lead in some cases to unintelligent machines passing the test and a case of a human failing the test, according to Shieber (1994) as cited by Legg and Hutter (2007). The Eliza effect arguably demonstrates the unreliability of humans as judges of machine intellgence.

Also, their witty comments to each other make for highly entertaining moments. Claudio allows other people to fool him into believing untrue things, which leads to dramatic altercations with numerous characters. Dogberry’s unwittiness leads to a coincidence that saves the whole play and creates an ironic feeling that the least intelligent character discovered the evil plot. “The wit of Shakespeare’s play informs the words spoken by the characters, places the characters themselves as truly witty and intelligent, inappropriately facetious, or ingeniously witless, suggests the lines of action these characters will
Catch-22 is effective because the reader laughs at the absurdities of war and of the military in general. Using satire, black humour and seemingly undefeatable logic, the book argues that war is insane, that the military is insane, and that, quite probably, modern life itself is insane
A dissonance between expectations and reality creates a sense of humor, which, when utilized in literature, acts to amplify criticism. Building on this, exaggerating flaws and unusual situations connects the novel to the reader, establishing a successful comedy. In his novel Catch-22, Joseph Heller explores this concept by developing Yossarian, the protagonist, as a character marked by ambiguity. While many details of the setting remain unclear, Heller mentions that the novel occurs during World War II primarily on an island called Pianosa, the Twenty-seventh Army Air Force Headquarters. Throughout each aspect of his life, Yossarian occupies a gray area.
The Onion article employs its usual gimmick of satire to highlight the absolute travesty that consumerism has done to the advertising world. This satire shows how consumerism has caused people to become sort of naive to the facets of advertising and in the process unknowingly suspend their well known beliefs and get sucked into the alluring trap of advertising.

It is very reminiscent of a formal proposal that provides a so proclaimed sensible solution, yet completely outrageous and abnormal in all regards. The satire benefits greatly in regards of the power of the satire from the continued profession and authoritative tone and formal proposal format which adds power to the argument of the satire.
If the world state allowed the people freedom they wouldn’t be able to hide the truth from then. This demonstrates a problem with the brave new world and is a reoccurring problem with totalitarian states because people will never be as happy as they could be without freedom. This dissatisfaction is demonstrated by Helmholtz when he says,
For example, Feste says to Olivia, “I wear not motley in my brain.” (i.v.54-55). So although he may dress like a fool he does not have the intelligence of a fool and therefore should not be seen as someone who is dull. Feste is cautioning against making connections between what can be seen and what cannot, the actions and appearance of Feste do not shed light on his sanity as they are mutually exclusive. He later addresses this point again when interrogating Malvolio, “
