CARMELINO, Ana Cristina  y  RAMOS, Paulo. THE IMPACT OF THE O AMIGO DA ONÇA IN CONTEMPORANEOUS CHARGES: ETHOS AND HUMOR. Lingüística [online]. 2020, vol.36, n.2, pp.9-29.  Epub 09-Nov-2020. ISSN 2079-312X.

This article shows the longevity of O Amigo da Onça, a Brazilian humor character created by Péricles Maranhão.

Published in the O Cruzeiro magazine, from 1943 to 1972, the comic showed him putting others in embarrassing situations. The hypothesis to be worked out is that his unreliable ethos is associated with other people to produce humor and criticize, which contributes to perpetuate the character. The example in this text to be analyzed is the Brazilian ex-president Michel Temer. The objective is to show, through the charges examination, that Temer's approach to O Amigo da Onça acts as a technique to produce humor, as well suggests ideological assumptions about the former president's way of acting. The study is anchored in assumptions of discursive theories, in the case of the field of humor and of the notions of memory and ethos.

Palabras clave : charge; ethos; O Amigo da Onça; Michel Temer.
