Abstract

Every Who down in Whoville liked parody a lot; But the Ninth Circuit Grinches, with jurisdiction over Whoville, did not! They were hostile to parody, whatever the season. Please don't ask why; no one quite knows the reason. It may have been that their ties were too tight, Or perhaps their heads weren't screwed on just right. But I think that the most likely reason of all was that their sense of humor was two sizes too small.
