Parodists Unmasked (Mostly)

Jameel revealed yesterday the identities of (most of) the authors of the (mostly) wonderful Purim blog-parodies. I'm sure it came as no surprise whatsoever that the Soccer Dad parody was done by yours truly. In fact, probably the only parody whose author was even more obvious was Cross-Current's - the venom that dripped from that one was all too familiar.

So thanks again to Jameel and the parodists! Why not go back and re-read these creative, hilarious, and - again mostly - good-spirited mockeries. Purim may be over, but we can all still use a good laugh. I know I can!

I know the elder figured it out. You think it was the reference back to your blog? (Without that I don't know if I would have figured it out if I didn't have foreknowledge about who was doing it!)

It was the reference to my blog plus the Star Trek angle. I don't know, maybe it wasn't as obvious as I thought.

Some of the other author-IDs were quite interesting and surprising.

It was the Star Trek stuff all the way.
