"I ATEN'T DEAD"

Ftfy.
You know, I'm actually kind of surprised that there hasn't been a Discworld or even a Harry Potter reference in all of this (unless I've missed it).
Like, anywhere in the entire story so far? We had a Hermione in Portal Park at one point, didn't we?

Tondy tried to make a "bumbleboar" with a white beard named Aldus.

I forgot about this one, though more because I had forgotten Dumbledore's first name. I originally thought it was a play on bumblebee, what with more iconic references to bumblebear, bumblebeetle, bumblebat, etc. Practically any other animal with a name beginning with 'B' has been parodied. Especially the buzz and grunt and fly around the room bit. It's a bee and a boar. You can even see it hanging behind her.

Did we? Was it an image, description, or name?

Even still, this is two minor references at best. And we've not seen any for Discworld, by in large, the inspiration for a good deal of Harry Potter's premise.

What's the point in parodying a parody? To make a better parody?

Against Terry Pratchett?

Earlier this year I discovered that Always Look on The Bright Side of Life originated from Monty Python's The Life of Brian. Learning that killed my dreams of making a hit parody song titled "Always Look on the Bright Side of Death", which I had been working on for several years[1] (I only did one line besides the title). It didn't help my moral to discover that my title was also a lyric to the song I was parodying.

[1]And by "working on for years", I mean put on the backburner since I was 11.
