I have heard these days in a couple of occasions the word “caricaturerization”, although I understood its meaning I went to the dictionary to find the proper meaning of it. To my surprise, this word does not exist and I admit to have use it myself in several occasions. The proper way to say it, as a verb is: caricature.
Mostly it means to create a pictorial representation of an object or person with its most distinctive features or peculiarities deliberately exaggerated to produce a comic or grotesque effect.
But, there is another connotation given to the word that is more sinister that the above: A grotesque imitation or misrepresentation of an event, action, view and/or opinion.
And immediately I went back to the places I have mentioned it and realized that I was guilty! Because I use to caricature other people sentences about various topics, but particularly religion and politics. I did that, because I thought, that they were being insincere or naive about their statements and sometimes just plain incoherent or idiotic, And making a caricature of what they just said, would help them to understand the stupidity or absurdity of their words.
But, who am I to do that? because, a lot of people really mean what they say, it might be wrong to my eye (or the eyes of science and reason) but it is right for them.
So, some of them have reacted offended and irate about my “caricature-rization”.
I have misread the signs.
So! to them: I am sorry. I am guilty as charge.
I’ll try to read more into peoples statements to really identify those idiotic from the heartfelt ones. And refrain from my sarcastic way of pointing them out. That’s all I can promise for now.
