Cool! My favorite bit, from the askmen.com writeup:

>>
What We Think:
This site has tons of music-related information like misheard lyrics, cool band names, etc. The song parodies are hilarious -- if you like Weird Al, you'll appreciate these.

Best Feature:
The "Music Parody" section.
<<

It's nice to see that the parodies are finally emerging from the shadows of the misheard lyrics and getting their own place in the sun. Not that askmen.com is comparable to the sun, necessarily, but you know.

By the way, Chucky, if you read this, here's a totally unrelated issue for you: When I go to this page:
http://www.amiright.com/parody/authors/
and try to sort, no matter which column I click, it sorts by Position (=Number of Parodies). Same kind of thing with individual author pages: no matter which column I click, it sorts alphabetically by parody title.

I recently switched browsers to Safari, and I don't remember experiencing any sorting dysfunction before, so maybe it's my own freaking fault for making the change. Still, I thought I'd complain, since you do, after all, exist to serve us. Right?

The parodies have gotten a few mentions before, but when there's twice as many misheard lyrics every day and on the site in general, the misheards do tend to get the most notice.  There was a TV bit about one of the name sections which was kind of neat.

The problem with the sorting, is strictly a Safari issue, and not something that I could troubleshoot even if I had access to it.  I'm sure Firefox is available on Mac too, hint hint.

In some browsers I've used, those sorting things didn't even work. Other times it would take too long because I was using a slow computer. Guess it might depend on the browser and/or operating system, I don't know. :-\\
