parody

Mr. Alfred Matthew Yankovic has released his ninety-seven gazillionth album, Mandatory Fun, and who are we to suddenly develop “good taste” and not just wallow around in enjoying the mostly-amusing silliness that Weird Al occasionally flings out against the wall? Weird Al is childish, simple, and obvious, and for that, we are happy to listen […]

John Oliver’s Last Week Tonight had some fun with one of the weirder artifacts to come out of the investigation into General Motors’ defective cars: a list of banned words that GM didn’t want employees using in emails or other written documents. They weren’t quite ready to fix the ignition-switch problem that was killing people, […]

Oh, look! Patronizing scold Dinesh D’Souza has branched out from just yammering about how Barack Hussein Obama is the worst, most un-American president ever, and now he’s made a video parody of that “Between All the Ferns On Zack Galifianakis’s Lap” video that Barry was in. And he sure hopes it goes viral! It’s full […]

Like most of you, I do find fundamentalist Christians amusing, like clowns. Such merry puppets, spinning around and around!  Sometimes, however, it seems like they’ve gone into reruns: it’s all gays, gays, gays, and fetuses, fetuses, fetuses all the time, tsk.

Here for your morning clipbait are Jimmy Fallon and Bruce Springsteen, two broken heroes on a last chance power drive…but mostly just stuck in traffic on the George Washington Bridge.

Photographer Pete Souza’s note: “The President called me over to pose for a photo with a young boy who had fallen asleep during the Father’s Day ice cream social in the State Dining […]

What an interactive Friday it’s been for you worthly Wokette skum! We had a real live book-writing guy drop by, and some of you actually seemed to have read a little farther than the seven chapters we made it. You also added a whole bunch of suggested (and suggestive) two-word article titles to K-Lo’s Muppet […]

So what we have here is a copy of the graphics from the Family Research Council’s “Call2Fall” campaign, which is set for this Sunday, June 30. The event’s FAQ explains that it’s “nothing fancy,” merely a pledge for Christians to take time on June 30 to “call your people to get on their knees and […]

Oh boohoo, Meghan McCain is furious because mean old troll Erick Erickson’s right-wing website RedState.com posted some kind of half-wit parody of Meghan McCain’s vapid Daily Beast columns that her lawyers say too closely resembles her actual half-wit columns to count as satire. The original post has been taken down, but the full version of […]
