Sorry Mike, while the number does begin with the letter "N" the parody does not this would go under the "Number, and Symbols Round Later In The Year".... only parodies that start with the letter "N" will be allowed for this round

Hmm, interesting; good point. I suppose he could have typed out all the words rather than list the numbers (i.e., nine trillion....), but I doubt that would have fit the space allowed for the title, so IMHO it should be allowed in the N round. Personally, I'd save it for numbers/symbols, but that's just me...

The few #s parodies I have I typed the number rather than the word (i.e., 4 Syllables vs Four Syllables) to avoid any problems posting them in the #/symbols comp, but, to my way of thinking, it should be eligible for the F round as well (but not the Q - we're not going into Spanish here... okay I'm overanalysing this...).

What say you, Stu?

I'm definitely with Matthias.  I think the ruling is probably clear-cut too.  Mike's parody would be filed on amiright.com in the #section, not in the N section so that decides it for mine.

And I also agree it's possible to overanalyse these things.  A parody titled "H for Harry" could arguably be entered in the "A" Comp since "H" is spelt "aitch" - but that would be arguing for the sake of it, imo

- not that there's anything wrong with that of course :)
