Farce

Today’s Daily Post Writing Prompt: Farce

Featured Image: Farce du Cuvier (1896) by Henri Jules Jean Geoffroy. (Source)

A farce is a terribly-timed joke, an absurdity, absurd event, or an improbable situation.  The idea of a face makes one slap their forehead and ask if you’re “for real.”

Slapstick, buffoonery, and vaudeville are all farces.

Something that devolves into a farce often goes into shambles.

Other ways to describe “farce”:

Mockery

Travesty

Sham

Pretense

Masquarade

Joke

A total waste of time

Skillfully exploited
