Ricochet co-czar Rob Long has a tremendously funny review in the March Commentary (sorry, behind the firewall) of The Oxford Book of Parodies. (Despite his co-czarship, he has not forced me to write this, and that whip he is using does not hurt. Really.) I laughed out loud -- as did Rob, apparently -- at Gavin Ewart's "A Wordsworthian Sonnet for Arnold Feinstein, Who Mended My Spectacles in Yugoslavia."
As for the title of this post, Rob starts the review by asking why Mickey Mouse is more famous than Bugs Bunny, even though he finds Bugs funnier and more talented. I'm not sure what it has to do with the book, but it is an excellent question. I would ask Ricochet readers which one they find funnier, but I am confident that such a discerning crowd would be unanimously in the Bugs camp, so I won't bother.
