According to wikipedia, parody is "a work that imitates another work in order to ridicule, ironically comment on, or poke some affectionate fun at the work itself, the subject of the work, the author or fictional voice of the parody, or another subject."

One should not expect truth from parody. For example, one would not look at an article from The Onion for the truth about current events. Thousands of people did not march on Washington for fresh air and exercise. The Yankees did not decline the Wild Card. A new heart device was not installed in Dick Cheney so that he may experience love. These things are jokes. They are for us to laugh at.

Furthermore, one can not necessarily infer anything about the feelings of the author (or authors) on the subject which they are parodying. As stated in the definition, parody can be used to "poke some affectionate fun" at something else. Certainly, when Saturday Night Live included several parodies of "Celebrity Jeopardy" it was not because they disliked the game show or the celebrities they lampooned, or thought that other game shows were better. They simply found an opportunity to create a humorous sketch which exaggerated the characteristics of the original. Likewise, the "Joe Pesci Show" sketches, which featured Joe Pesci beating up each of his guests were not actual depictions of what the writers of SNL felt about Pesci. It was merely a caricature of characters that Pesci has played.

Anything which is in the public eye is a potential source for parody. Politicians, elements of pop culture, bloggers, and even Wikipedia itself have all been the subject of parodies.

From the Uncyclopedia: "In contemporary usage, parody (otherwise known as a pisstake) is a form of satire that try to imitate another work of art in order to ridicule it but miserably fails. When the attempt to ridicule doesn't fail, it's called plagiarism. Parody exists in all art media, including literature, music, and cinema. It is notable for being significantly better than only one D."

Councilman Writes Letter to Dealer

It starts off with the greeting, "Dear Piece of Trash" and it only gets better from there. See the original here.

There was a leader in Chicago who many people want replaced. At the very best, one could say that he'd had more off days than on days. At the worst, one could say that he was an overrated, completely incompetent boob.

Many many people were clamoring for his removal and replacement. The problem was that none of the people available to replace him were all that good. Some had once shown some leadership potential, while others seemed like while they wouldn't let anything bad happen, they also wouldn't take charge and make any improvements (though, arguably, that could be better than the current situation).

When he re-won his job, some folks appeared to jump onto his bandwagon, saying "We know he's got problems, but he's better than the alternative. Just because I've criticized him in the past doesn't mean that I necessarily need to choose one of the other people up for the job. They're not necessarily going to be better."

Those folks got lambasted as being hypocrites and traitors. But I saw their point -- even though the leader in question was not doing the job well, it didn't mean that the other choices would do it any better.

On the other hand, some people want to see change for the sake of change. Tom Westgard feels that "it's a step forward to try a new option."

Well, those who want change are going to get it this weekend: Brian Griese is taking over the reins as quarterback of the Chicago Bears. It will be interesting to see if it's better, worse, or different at all. What I do know is that the Bears couldn't keep going the way they were going, and some change was definitely needed. Will it be enough?

Does this all sound very very familiar?

Tooting our Own Horns

We here at I Love Everything and Everyone aren't given to tooting our own horns very often, but this time we just couldn't resist as we have recently been honored by none other than Archie Gait's mother who has bestowed upon us her "Archie's Mom Loves This Site" seal of approval. As if that weren't enough, we've been ranked (using her incredibly precise, but impossible-to-understand rating system) as her number one, most favorite site on the entire internet.

How cool is that?

We promise not to let this go to our head. We'll still be bringing you the most hard hitting nonsense in the blogosphere.

Town Hall Meeting Gives Townspeople Chance To Say Stupid Things In Public

NEW BEDFORD, MA—In a true display of democracy, a town hall meeting held at the New Bedford High School auditorium Monday gave the crowd of approximately 550 residents the opportunity to publicly voice every last one of the inane thoughts and concerns they would normally only have the chance to utter to themselves.
