In the article, “What If Kayne West is Retarded?” the author is ridiculing Kayne West and explaining how much of a complete imbecile he is. The author’s primary purpose of this article is to inform the intended audience on how moronic Kayne really is. The secondary purpose of this article is to entertain the audience. The article is broken down into four different sections explaining the various reasons why he is allegedly retarded. The tone is conversational and sarcastic. In this article, the sentence structure is simple, but some complex sentences are also used. Such as the sentence structure, the word choice of the article uses simple and complex words.

He believes that people are being influenced by the wrong skills; I guess that is why in his book he had numerous misspelled words and grammatical errors. This also makes Kayne West seem illiterate. Although the primary purpose is to inform; the secondary purpose is to entertain.
The secondary purpose of this article is to entertain the audience by making fun of Kayne West and using sarcastic language. The author uses a funny, but sarcastic comment referring to Kayne’s statement about having “little baby Tourettes” by saying that he is going to invent an alcoholic beverage that will keep people from controlling their speech and he will call it “Little Baby Tourettes.” The author also pokes fun at Kayne by taunting his book.
