VE Spoofs His Own Reader's Blogs - Part 3

Yep, I'm still poking fun at your very own blogs. That's right, I'm going right down the blog roll and doing a spoof on your blogs...five at a time. I'll publish them as I finish them. Here's the next five...

Somebody said it was a genius idea that required no humor content. I beg to differ. These take quite a bit of time and thought. I orient them toward the blog owner. If you don't read their blogs then you might not get the jokes sometimes. Others I just make up as I go. I'll continue to sprinkle these in from time to time. I won't immerse you, but I'll keep them coming until you say "enough".

Be sure to click on each of them if you want to be able to fully see my spoof. You can refer to my blog roll to see the original blog...





There you have it...blogs 11-15 from my blog roll are officially spoofed. 16-20 are up next.

O. M. G. !!! Ahahahahahaha!

Okay, literally laughing out loud at my desk here. Bravo VE! I was really worried... but I love that you switched me up with one of my most favorite Python parodies ever! Yes, as a matter of fact, I WAS singing that as soon as I saw the title.

Oh, and love Paul and Blue (and the axe) in there... and of course, the Star Wars reference.

Well done. I shall be keeping a copy of this for my very own.

You ARE awesome!

VE said...

maureen - I can't tell you the time it took to do yours. You have such an incredible detail in your blog format so I didn't want to just skimp and replacing the characters and items takes time. Glad you liked it...

leelee said...

LOL..YAY!! I absolutley LOVE Tots..and Men, not to mention their things (wait, that didn't come out right..oh well)

So fun, VE you are officially THE BEST! Thank you, I feel honored...

HUGS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

VE said...

leelee - Usually I come up with a theme right away. Your blog title took some thinking. I liked the results though.

leelee said...

thanks...I think you actually hit the nail on the head.. lol

hugs!

VE said...

leelee - Well then that's good because I suck at nailing. I usually hit the thumb...

leelee said...

lol

btw, the other spoofs are HA!sterical. I especially like "Cramping Blogger" lololol

hugs!

Beth said...

From someone who hasn’t changed their template in god knows how long and who cannot even hope to achieve your standard of wit, I happen to think these blog spoofs of yours display creative genius!

Anne said...

I actually like the 'Thoughts' to 'Tots' part, it made me smile. Now I need to excuse myself. don't ask why.

ReformingGeek said...

Great job again! Other Other People Exist? Logging? Cramping? Great stuff but I think I need a Midol.

I know how long it takes just to search for photos and write the content for the roasts that I've done. I know how long it takes to work on my blog header. I can't imagine doing what you've done here. I'm exhausted just thinking about it.

VE said...

leelee - Yeah, Roy hasn't seen it yet. he he

beth - Why thanks...just imagine what I'll do with yours! I already know...

anne - I know...what's not funny about tots?

reforminggeek - Some blogs the format is easy but when you have embedded images layered over other text or images and then fonts that I don't know where they came from...then the formatting gets tedious. I enjoy the spoofing part though. And five at a time sprinkled amongst my regular nonsense makes it non-time pressured.

Roy Scribner said...

You really outdid yourself on the graphics - I had implemented some fairly spoof-proof shadowing, but I see you blew through that like a Burnside bottle of Mad Dog. It was a good call, though, because I gave Outside mag some pain, suffering, and constipation yesterday, when I compared them to GQ.

Quirkyloon said...

Wow. I can't imagine how much time and effort goes into these.

They are genius and hilarious!

By the way, I caught your use of the word "whilst" once again.

Mighty impressive!

VE said...

roy - I'll admit, yours took some time too. I was a long time subscriber of Outside...clear back to its origins when it was called Mariah (not many know that!) but let it lapse recently for just that reason. My Dad still gives me his on occasion though...

quirky - Yes, I did you whilst again...just for you!

Elizabeth said...

I love the blog parodies! They make me want to go read the real blogs!
:)

VE said...

elizabeth - Excellent...I'm sure each of the bloggers would like to hear that.

Gladys said...

VE I heart you for using a Monty Python reference. You are my favorite.

Nessa said...

Whoever said they weren't funny, didn't read them.

Mike said...

I'm going to develop ADD waiting for mine to come up.

Teaches me for not commenting more.

moooooog35 said...

May I suggest for mine the following:

"Metal Jew"

Which, by the way, would be a great name for a rock band.

Nice work, VE.

You seriously need to get out more.

freetheunicorns said...

By logging, do you mean pooping?

The Incredible Woody said...

Mmmm, tots! Yummy!!

VE said...

gladys - I loves me some Monty Python! I have the whole TV show on DVD and the movies.

nessa - I don't think they implied that they weren't funny...I think they were implying that I came up with a clever way of easily having blog post material. In reality it is not easy; but they are right out a lot of endless material.

mike - You can say that again! Wait...you did! ha ha

moooooog35 - You're not too far away. Imagine the possibilities. Why would I get out and miss that!

freetheunicorns - Ha! Not on this one. I did have that picture of the big log in the toilet with the "Captains Log..." Star Trek bit the other day though. Looking at the big poop grossed me out so I didn't keep it on there very long...

incredible woody - Yes...what is not to like about tots!

Megan said...

Another great job. That first one is so perfect it almost isn't a spoof at all.

VE said...

megan - It's so Kurt like, isn't it?

Uncivil said...

VE
That is so anti-Uncivil! LOL!!
You're even trying to turn my dogs into bleeding hearts?!
I can tell Obamamania is rampant here!
How did you know I needed a blog bailout? Change I can't belive in!

Janna said...

"Unicivic: An old one-wheeled Honda..."

ROFL! Excellent.

Sounds like something I'd do for the Jannapedia.

J at www.jellyjules.com said...

I'm a friend of Jimmy's, so I had to come check out your spoof. I liked them all. What a lot of work! :)

Baino said...

Plenty of time on your hands then VE? Loved Kurt's . . .then you could cover the whole Cahalan clan with that one!

Chris Eldin said...

AHAHAH! I think the originals need to incorporate your improvements!
:-)

Serena said...

Those are great! I don't know you think up all this stuff. Perhaps it's best I don't know. Just ... keep on making me laugh.:)

Jacki said...

Eeeek....I am getting closer. But I must say, you've done a great job with these!

Perpetual Chocoholic said...

"Going" to develop ADD Mike?

I am Arizona; a person, not a place. said...

These were so funny! I love the Cramping Blogger. "When can we pay the mortgage and live at home again" made me laugh out loud!

Ronda Laveen said...

OOPE: mmmm, delicious lean white meat!!!

Logging: Where else can I find logging and sewing tips?

Cramping: I think it's from too much fiber. It looks like that little girls is going to roast some of those logs after she finishes her marshmallow.

Tots: At first glance, I read the title as Toots and Man Things.

Uncivic: Republicans saving Earth's resources...now that's funny!

Can't wait for the next 5, VE.

Hale McKay said...

These are a riot! Brilliant!

How long does it take for you put together these five for one post?

Chris Wood said...

Good stereos are just right, end of story.

Everyone knows that.

Collette said...

Cramps are a wonderful idea for a blog...lol! Great job! They are hilarious.

subtorp77 said...

Just took a look at the blog roll( again ). Good thing you stopped the count when you did. I can rest awhile. Meanwhile....what's that I hear? An enraged mob! Heading towards you! With torches! And pitch-forks! And tar and feathers! The horror!!!!!!

Heh, heh. These are getting pretty creative, VE

tony said...

Brilliant Idea!I promise Not To Change My Template Again Before You Come-a-Calling!

Jaime said...

oh no! a blog about cramping??? i know it's a spoof...but still!

yellojkt said...

These are great. And at 33 I'm getting closer.

VE said...

uncivil - There you are! Been hiding out with Cheney lately, huh? I knew I'd get a response out of that one! ha ha Need somebody around here to keep us liberals at bay...

janna - You can use that one for your dictionary. When you're rich and famous, don't forget to send me my 3 cents for the contribution!

J - Thanks. I appreciate the brevity of your blogging name. It makes mine seem so wordy now...

baino - Yes, I felt that one was very Kurt-like. Kurt has a definitive style I love mimicking...

chris - They're all running away screaming right now though...

serena - You don't want to know...

jacki - You're much closer. In fact, next batch closer. I'll give you a sigh of relief though; I haven't started the next batch yet. That should put you at ease for about two days...

perpetual chocoholic - Yeah, I was thinking the same thing...

arizona - Of course those in that situation probably aren't laughing...

ronda - Just think, your meteoric rise on the blog roll just puts you that much closer to your own abuse!

hale - Good question! Some take me about 10 minutes, others a good 40. It depends on the complexities of changing the look and feel without losing it

chris - Thanks for tackling the deeper issues!

collette - Thanks. Let's hope I don't get writer's cramps...

subtorp77 - Yeah, you've risen quickly and would be much higher if I'd bothered to update more often. Perhaps I should just to scare you...ha ha

tony - Perhaps you might need to after I finish with it!

jaime - It's updated once a month... ;)

yellojkt - Ha! You know I'm going to ask it. 33....IQ? Age? Top speed on your bike? Oh...you actually bothered to count your position...yes, your time is coming...

subtorp77 said...

VE, heh, heh, heh...

Jeff said...

*Pacing back and forth*

These are all most excellent. Three years of PotatoChopping have really paid off!

VE said...

subtorp77 - All in good time

jeff - Just wait until I get to yours! And you thought the gnome bit was abusive... muh haha

Carla said...

Best idea I've seen in a long time. This is great!

VE said...

carla - And yours is coming right up!

Kurt said...

I left a lovely comment here whilst I was on vacation, but now I don't see it.

VE said...

kurt - You did...but you left it on a post way back earlier. I did reply to it that you probably had intended it to be on this post but I cannot change where the comments end up...

Mrsupole said...

Good, Good, Good, Good,

Actually these are all great. I am enjoying them so much. I haven't counted to see where I am, but dang it, you sure are going through them faster than I thought. Oh well, they are great.

God bless.

VE said...

mrsupole - I've slowed down as of late. I'll get another batch going soon though.

Winky Twinky said...

Why am I just discovering this? What a totally cool idea!! This is an extremely creative thing to do to flatter fellow bloggers and get readers at the same time!! Well, I'm definitely not one to be in any hurry to be spoofed, but I definitely gotta check out the ones who are... great work!
