Friday Humor: Best Of - Parodies

Yes, it's time for another "Best Of" addition of Friday Humor. I just wanted to spotlight some of my favorite Friday Humor posts of the past year. Today's selections are what I like to call parodies.

Everqust II as a sitcom? Sure, why not in
this EQII Sitcoms Post.

Kraymir: Hey Jerai, some wacko’s sending me a tell! Something about Vandelay Raiding? Do you have anymore owlbear steaks?

Gorge (shouting): Say Vandelay Raiding Guild! Vandelay Raiding Guild!

What's going on there? Well, you'll have to read the post to find out.

Even the mighty Bard is not beyond parody in my all-time favorite post,
EQII Shakespeare.

Julius Caesar

Caesar: Cowards die many times before their deaths; The valiant never taste of death but once.

Brutus: Yeah, Caesar, I know, but we died eight times on this raid already and I have almost a full level of xp debt now. Uh, hey, my computer's acting weird...

Brutus fakes link-death.

Caesar: Et tu, Brute?

Read the whole post for more Shakespearean follies.

But Shakespeare is not the only literary great that was parodied, as you can find out in this
EQII Literary Humor post.

Animal Farm, George Orwell

All tanks are equal. But some tanks are more equal than others.

The full post contains many more literary parodies, including some nice additions in the comments by Cyanbane, so head on over and take a gander.

And finally, forget the mighty Bard, what about the mighty Brad? No, not even Brad McQuaid is beyond parody as you can see in
this Vanguard edition of Friday Humor.

"Just for clarity, I don't want a simple log off screen in Vanguard. Because I want a myriad of variations in log offs. Sure, you might like a nifty little interface where you just click a button and log off. Yeah, be lazy and let that do all the work for you. Logging off is part of the gameplay. Is you race a good sleeper or not? Have you killed a lot of mobs that day? You may be over-excited. Where is the best locale to sleep? Have you switched your gear into your bedtime configuration? Have you countered anxiety with warm milk or the count sheep ability? All these will have an effect on the patented log off progress bar, which can range anywhere from seconds to hours. It may not be for everyone, but you're welcome to just turn your computer off and take the two level penalty."

I also take on eating, shopping and combat in that post so feel free to give it a read.

I hope you enjoyed this edition of "Best Of" Friday Humor.
