In Search of Web Parody

About

My goal is to create an interesting list of  parody websites found on the internet.   I’m not suggesting that these are the absolute best ones.  It is, after all, a matter of personal taste.   I’m just looking for a variety of sites on different topics.  Just because I list it here does not mean that I actually like the site – – only that I find it interesting in some way.  In other words, don’t complain to me if I list a site you find offensive! 

If you know of any good  parody sites not listed yet, please let me know.  If you have any good background information on a site, I’m interested in that too.

Note:  I use the term parody on this blog rather loosely.  Some of the websites that I highlight actually fall into the category of  satire or hoax/spoof, rather than parody.  As I  write each post, I will try to classify the corresponding website correctly, but I am bound to make some mistakes.  If that’s the kind of thing that bugs you, send me a comment and I’ll fix it!

Parody – a work created to mock, comment on, or poke fun at an original work, its subject, or author, or some other target, by means of humorous, satiric or ironic imitation.

Spoof –  a hoax; a gentle satirical imitation; nonsense, tomfoolery

Satire – a literary work in which irony, derision, or wit in any form is used to expose folly or wickedness
