When I look at page 827 of Webster’s New (1981) Collegiate Dictionary I see the word “parody.”
It has two meanings and I am thankful for that.
1: a literary or musical work in which the style of the author or work is closely imitated for comic effect or in ridicule.
2: a feeble or ridiculous imitation
I am pleased to report that I am not attempting definition number 1.
I am just as proud, possibly mirroring a peacock, to tell you that my intent matches definition number 2.
Yes. This parody that I am about to introduce is both feeble and ridiculous.
However, the introduction and the story are, it says here, both entertaining. And that is my sole purpose.
And with that said I begin the introduction to a parody.
