I really like good literary parodies, whether the targeted writer is a favorite (as below) or someone I'm not especially fond of (any good Hemingway parody will make me smile for the better part of a day . . . I'm pretty easy to please that way). As we all know, the best parodies actually pay a backhanded homage to not just the writer parodied but also his/her audience. I found this at the delightful intersection of three favorites of mine: parodies, David Foster Wallace, and The Onion. Someone has read--and likes--DFW quite a lot to have him down this cold.
