Ridicule \Rid"i*cule\, noun [F. ridicule, L. ridiculum a jest, fr. ridiculus. See {Ridiculous}.]

1. An object of sport or laughter; a laughingstock; a laughing matter.

[Marlborough] was so miserably ignorant, that his deficiencies made him the ridicule of his contemporaries. --Buckle.

To the people . . . but a trifle, to the king but a ridicule. --Foxe.

2. Remarks concerning a subject or a person designed to excite laughter with a degree of contempt; wit of that species which provokes contemptuous laughter; disparagement by making a person an object of laughter; banter; -- a term lighter than derision.

We have in great measure restricted the meaning of ridicule, which would properly extend over whole region of the ridiculous, -- the laughable, -- and we have narrowed it so that in common usage it mostly corresponds to "derision", which does indeed involve personal and offensive feelings. --Hare.

Safe from the bar, the pulpit, and the throne, Yet touched and shamed by ridicule alone. --Pope.

Syn: Derision; banter; raillery; burlesque; mockery; irony; satire; sarcasm; gibe; jeer; sneer; ribbing.

Usage: {Ridicule}, {Derision}, {mockery}, {ribbing}: All four words imply disapprobation; but ridicule and mockery may signify either good-natured opposition without manifest malice, or more maliciously, an attempt to humiliate. Derision is commonly bitter and scornful, and sometimes malignant. {ribbing} is almost always good-natured and fun-loving.
