Who knew Alanis Morissette was such a brilliant satirist?

It's both funny and disturbing.

I haven't listened to Morissette since high school (and Ironic was everywhere then, so don't pretend you don't remember it), though I did like her portrayal of God in Dogma. I wonder whether her more recent recordings have this kind of feminist content?

Another insightful take here:

Because not only is Morissette mocking the ludicrousness of "My Humps," she's also mocking herself. The fact that she recorded this song in the "Morissette style," with the haunting piano and angsty wailing in tact, proves that she knows she can sometimes seem like a drippy flower child.
