Definition
a representation of a person that is exaggerated for comic effect
  • ...horizontality of everything else (the Museum of Science and Industry, with its dome stripped to its steel frame, as if for an autopsy; the modern Chamber of Commerce Building, its tower as cold, rigid, and unassailable after the blow as before; the huge, low-lying, camouflaged city hall; the row of dowdy banks, caricaturing a shaken economic system); and in the streets a macabre traffic — hundreds of crumpled bicycles, shells of street cars and automobiles, all halted in mid-motion.
