Your Best Parody "This Is Just To Say" poems

I've searched and couldn't find a post for this, so apologies if there is one and I missed it. I'd like your best/favourite William Carlos Williams "This Is Just To Say" parody poems from the green/blue/grey. I'd also love any other comment on the blue, green or grey that is in any way a parody of an existing text. [more inside]

Mentioned in comments, Dutch comedian who parodies language class

I've been searching on MetaFilter and just can't find it: there was a comment a few years ago that linked to the YouTube channel of a Dutch comedian who parodies I think ESL class aimed at Dutch immigrants. So it's this weird but highly amusing hybrid of Dutch and English with plenty of caustic puns (in Dutch). Anyone recall who or what I am talking about?

Should I eat this?

What if the characters of TV's Hannibal used AskMe to solve their trickiest Problems From Everyday Life? It is hilarious and challenging: Match usernames to characters from the show.

Tell us about the old days, Papa Cortex.

Today I idly clicked on the 10 years ago today link on the front page and was revelling in the innocence of the fledgling metafilter from back in the era when a busy day saw a dozen FPPs and a really active thread might get nearly a hundred comments. I was startled to see a thread with 1729 comments. (By comparison, the initial 'Plane crashed into the World Trade Center' FPP three weeks later did not even break 500.) Alas, the link to the metafilter parody in the FPP is dead. Does anyone have it archived anywhere?

MetaFilter parodies

Is the Spoonfed MetaMetaFilter parody online? The "rescued" link to kineticmuse at mssv.net no longer works. I'd also love to see other parodies.

Get Yer Ticket

I found Admiral Haddock's comment in the Ticketmaster thread so hilarious that I was determined to make an infographic. So I did. Get yer ticket here.

Where's that great parody of askme-as-life-helper?

A while back someone posted to meta a great little parody of the sort of sequence of questions we're all familiar with where someone uses askme to help them through absolutely every stage of their life. Where is it? I can't seem to find.

Bad parodies make bad posts

This is unacceptable. It should serve as an example to all the community, that one should never attempt to parody another's FPP. Especially if the execution of such a parody is flawed by broken links. SHAME.

MetaFilter parody, by SportsFilter

The latest MetaFilter Parody [Please scroll down a bit], courtesy of SportsFilter, though not up to classic standards [No links from me], is certainly funny enough. But it does seem, well, just a trifle incomplete...
