FHC Parody Contest!
« on: August 09, 2016, 06:11:07 PM »
Greetings, members and visitors of Fiver's Honeycomb!

Due to an idea from Silverweed's Claws, the staff has decided to run another forum event. Like the Christmas Avatar Contest, this will be a friendly competition using a poll to determine results.

Create a parody of anything (that's forum appropriate :P) and post it below. Submissions that aren't parodies but are still humorous in nature are also accepted. Art must be your own work. Each member can post up to two entries.

Mediums of all kinds are welcomed and even encouraged: art, video, music, or something else you may think of. Be creative!

Questions, suggestions, comments? Post them below. Oh, and have fun.

- Bright Side

Edit by Bright Side: Entries are due on August 23rd August 31st. Deadline extension to give people more time.

Here's my two images. I was already working on them for a totally unrelated project but hey, they fit XD

Used to be Retro (a RetroJunk.com parody):

Claws' entry is very funny.

While the first design may be (intentionally) ugly, the horrible new design is, well...horrible, and probably unusable.

Here's my first entry for the Parody Contest; the second is coming in a moment.

This is based off an actual joke mailing that I made a few months ago.

Without further ado, here's what happens when a forum gets bored.

FHC News, May 16: The Month Where Nothing Happens


Dear members and visitors of Fiver’s Honeycomb,


We actually have no news to report, so we don’t know why we’re even sending this out in the first place.


#############################


List of Contents:

Nothing


#############################


There is no news to report.


#############################


Since our last mailing, a whopping zero new members have registered. Let us welcome:

* Nobody


#############################


As always, the Staff is here for your support. (Not really)

Sincerely,
Your friendly* forum Staff


*In a 2011 survey of Fiver's Honeycomb, 100% of people reported that the Staff is "friendly". This happened to take place when Hawkbit was the only member.

Thank you, Vesper! (COOL nickname, by the way)

Are you thinking of submitting an entry or two for the contest? All you need is a sense of humor - whether laugh-out-loud funny, dry, or (in my case) nonexistent :P

I remember that fake mailing, Brighty.  It was funny back then, and now with the changes you made, it is even funnier.

I'll be looking forward to your second entry.

@Vesper: I hope you will also enter something.

Personally, I'll post something in a few days.

Here is my entry, a parody of the "terms of use" people are forced to agree with when they register an account on just about any website.  At this rate, I probably won't make a second entry.

Quote from: TERMS OF USEon 
TERMS OF USE
It looks like you're trying to create an account on this website.  You clearly have too much time on your hands, but in the end it's your time, your decision.  We're not going to stop you.

However, before you create an account, you must agree to the following terms of use.  If you don't agree, you can't visit this site.  Also, since most of you have a tendency to just click "I agree" without even bothering to read the agreement, we will crash your computer if you attempt to switch to a different tab or window.  Also, we are spying on you using your webcam; if you try to leave your computer, we will delete all your files.

---
ARTICLE 1: PERSONAL INFORMATION
In the registration form, you will be asked to enter a certain amount of personal information.  It is your obligation to complete all fields, and always answer truthfully.  We will compare the information you entered with government records to make sure you didn't lie.

All information you give us, either willingly (registration form, etc.) or unknowingly (tracking cookies, etc.) will be sold to the highest bidder.  If you would rather have this information kept confidential, you can always buy it yourself.  However, since we sell several copies of all information we have, this probably won't change anything.

---
ARTICLE 2: ADVERTISING
As you may have already noticed, this site is covered with advertisements, most of them constantly flashing and/or moving around.  This is annoying, but we want to make sure you see them.  We need the money.  "But you're already selling my information, don't you make enough money with that?" you might say.  Of course we make a lot of money, but this is never enough.  Therefore, we sell advertising space on our website.

In fact, most of your information is bought by the advertisers, so they can figure out what kind of stuff you don't really need but think you do.  This way, you will buy a lot of pointless stuff you don't need, so they will make money and buy even more ads, so we make even more money.

"This is awfully complicated" you say?  We absolutely agree.  So why don't you just give us all your money so we can skip this whole process?  If you do so, we will disable all ads for your account.  A few days later, we will want more money, so we will enable them again.  You will have to give us all your money again if you want them disabled again.

Also, if you try to use an ad-blocker, we will harass you until you disable it.  If you still refuse, we will "borrow" your computer and disable it ourselves.

---
ARTICLE 3: ACCOUNT TERMINATION
We reserve the right to delete your account without prior notice.  Here is an incomplete list of reasons why we may do that:
*You violated any of the rules in this agreement;
*This agreement has been modified and you do not agree with the changes;
*We just don't like you;
*Someone paid us a lot of money to delete your account;
*Our employees are bored;
*We want to make sure the account deletion system works as intended;
*No reason at all.
Once an account is deleted, it cannot be undeleted.  Your IP address will also be blacklisted in our database to prevent you from creating a new account.

---
ARTICLE 4: OTHER
Organizing this agreement is complicated and a big waste of time, so in this section, we are going to dump all the rules that don't fit anywhere else.
*You must be human.  Aliens, robots and non-human animals are not allowed to use this site;
*You cannot use a proxy, TOR, or anything else we may or may not be aware of, to hide your true identity and prevent us from spying on you;
*We reserve the right to modify this agreement at any time and without prior notice.  It is your responsibility to periodically reread this agreement to make sure you are aware of all changes;
*We'll think of something else.

...that's about it.  Do you agree with these terms?


Quote from: Yes I agree with everything!on 
Congratulations!  This is a decision you will never regret.  You may now complete the registration form.


Quote from: No I don't agree with everything!on 
What do you think you're doing?  Do you seriously think you're allowed to disagree with these terms?  As a punishment, you will have to read the whole thing all over again.
