I think Ray is on the right track regarding Satire, but I don't think they necessarily need to be funny. Satires aim to paint things in certain ways in order to prove a point. Instead of being funny, it can be made exaggerated or ridiculous (not necessarily ludicrous, but absurd to a point). For example, Mark Twain's Huckleberry Finn is a satire of the American South during that time, and is less focused on comedy and moreso on exposing the culture for what it was back then.
