The satire present here is that the altering of the ten commandments effectively portray how the absurd the concept is. There is no way that animals could become, “more equal” than others. In the beginning of the novel, Old Major expressed that the animals shall overcome their oppressors, but the pigs become the oppressors. Through their chants and the ten commandments, the citizens are brainwashed to believe that everything is just and fair because when the commandments and chants were first written or said, everyone was in agreement, and believed it was fair. The pigs start to alter the propaganda, and the animals still believe that it is fair, when in reality it is not.

Lee shows this in many ways and one of those ways was with Boo Radley. “Boo Radley was about six-and-a-half feet tall, judging from his tracks, he dined on raw squirrels and any cats he could catch, that’s why his hands were bloodstained” (16). Even though they had never met or seen Boo, the children have heard many rumours about him from neighbours which shows that they have cast him out of their society. In the first few chapters, Scout is afraid of Boo Radley because of the stories she hears about him. “Every night sound I heard from my cot on the back porch was magnified three fold, every scratch of feet on gravel was Boo Radley seeking revenge, every passing Negro laughing in the night was Boo Radley loose and after us” (74).
Brother said on page 2, “When Doodle was 5 years old, I was embarrassed at having a brother who couldn’t walk.” Brother was also very embarrassed of his brother, because he looked different, and acted different.

Even though, brother gave up his free time during the summer to help Doodle, and teach him how to walk, the only reason he did it was because he was embarrassed. On page 2, Brother said, “When he crawled, he crawled backwards.”

Everyone leaves to find Lennie while Candy stays with Curley’s wife, “Old Candy lay down in the hay and covered his eyes with his arm”(108). The words “used to” are significant because it shows how Candy doesn’t know what it’s like to be without his dog, his companion, because he has had him for so long.

When do you become a grown up? I remember being five years old and lounging around in my Nonnie’s backyard. Like most kids, I did not want to be inside I would’ve much preferred the soothing chill of the air conditioner and Spongebob’s melodic voice. Despite my opinion, I found myself stuck listening to the earsplitting whining of the neighbors dogs while simultaneously wishing for something to save me from the desert that the backyard became around noon. In my eyes the only interesting thing about being in the backyard was the many different ways that I could annoy my sister; except there was one problem, my grandpa.
