Summary/Abstract: The aim of the article is to present the image of the world and a particular social group (young employees of corporations), created by the author of a Facebook profile and satirical texts published in the Do Rzeczy weekly magazine. At face value, the profile and the texts praise political correctness and (neo)liberalism, but in reality, they treat them ironically. The heroes of the stories and their narrator use a sociolect parodying “corpo‑speech” and the manner in which the “left‑wing” media present reality. There are also numerous allusions to current political and cultural events, which are presented subjectively, humorously and with stylistic virtuosity.
