Farmville parody ad

Direct Youtube link. Also, Mafia Wars. I don’t quite have a chronological grasp of Youtube memes, but these really remind me of Powerthirst.

rewording parody of mcnaughtons one nation under god samples christian minister black soldier christa mcaullife

Rewording of Jon McNaughton’s One Nation Under God

This is another parody of Utah artist Jon McNaughton’s creepy painting with a theocratic vibe. We get a thorough rewrite of the original’s explanations of the motif, with the nice JavaScript scroller and all. I keep my own backup copies of the original and this parody.

I recently discovered a less subtle, Cthulhu themed parody of the painting as well.

One Nation Under Cthulhu McNaughton parody

The picture (origin unknown) delivers Lovecraft-inspired parody of a “One Nation Under God” themed painting that has floated around the Internet for some time.

To fully grasp the madness of this work, read the original’s very elaborate explanations and feel that theocratic rage scare the shit out of you (Backup copy). Yeah, these people are allowed to vote.

EDIT: Found another parody.

Allison can write. She can put words on paper. She is writing a letter. She wrote one yesterday. She has written two letters. The doctors keep them in a file.

Creepy word-of-the-day themed webcomic disguised as a children’s dictionary. The word for April 2 2009 was “write“.

New Merlin Mann podcast: NPR parodies

I decided to wait a while before posting, to ensure the quality of this highly acclaimed geek humorist‘s latest endeavor. No reason to worry: Quotidian Public Radio leads me to suspect that this man would defecate distilled awesome if he tried hard enough.

Non-Americans may be confused by the specific reference to NPR, but anyone who’s ever listened to, enjoyed but still felt slightly amused by “deeper” radio programming, from the BBC or perhaps the Nordic public service broadcasting companies, should feel right at home.

“Alternate take of Batman and the Joker’s first conversation in The Dark Knight. […] I play the Joker, and I play Batman. Same guy. I did everything except punch myself in the face”

Reminds me of this weird animation. The tune is from some Brazilian pop song if I remember correctly.

Italian Spiderman is love. As Wikipedia describes it:

Italian Spiderman is a film parody of Italian action-adventure films of the 60s and 70s. […] In the middle of a party, an asteroid from a distant galaxy falls to Earth and is taken by professor Bernardi (Carmine Russo) for research. He discovers the asteroid has a substance that can create duplicates from any living being and decides that Italian Spiderman (Franco Franchetti), a fat, rude and powerful superhero, is the only man capable to have custody of the valuable asteroid. As soon Professor Bernardi gives Italian Spiderman the asteroid, he is attacked by the terrible Captain Maximum (Leombruno Tosca) who is interested in using the asteroid for his own evil plans. Foiled in his attempt to steal the asteroid from Bernardi, he transforms the Professor into a snake…

I cut the rest of the plot summary – go watch it on YouTube, where it’s being released in excerpts a few minutes long. Eight episodes have been released as of this writing.

I believe part 4 is the best one to start with, as it is a perfect summary of what the movie is all about:
