We Laugh Because We Love: Top 10 Romance Parodies

Photo courtesy of 50 Shades, The Musical! websiteObviously, we all love Romance as a genre. None of us would be here if we didn’t. (Here, as in at this site obviously, not here as in alive and in the world.) But loving something does not mean we cannot mock it, or enjoy it when others do so for us. In fact, if imitation is the sincerest form of flattery then parody must surely be the sincerest form of affection; to spoof anything really well you must know it inside and out, and such thorough acquaintance with the minutia of anything can only either lead to—or, more likely, be born out of— a deep and profound fondness.

Here then, the Top 10 romance parodies that are funniest when you know enough—and love enough—to really get the joke…

10. 50 Shades! The Musical (2013)
Parody of Fifty Shades of Grey by E.L. James

This stage parody promising live BDSM (“Best Damn Songs and Music”) was a hit in Chicago before making its way to Manhattan, the New York Post reporting that “the opening scene centers on a middle-aged ladies’ book group, then plunges, like a cougar’s neckline, into sketches making fun of the erotic, best-selling novel.” Conceived by musical improv comedy troupe Baby Wants Candy, the show features songs like “Red Room” with lyrics such as “How much can you take/How much can you handle?/Clamps upon your nipples?/Hot wax with a burning candle?” Rarely, if ever, has soft-core erotica been so jaunty.

Awkward! Top Cringe-Worthy Dad Moments in Romance Novels

Simply Irresistible by Rachel GibsonFather’s Day is coming up, and what better way to celebrate it than by counting down with awkwardly funny dad moments?

While dads usually have to enforce the rules, they are oftentimes turned to putty in their children's hands. These are some cringe-worthy moments that turned into laughs and great fatherhood memories for these men.

Pet Shop Meltdown:

In Rachel Gibson’s Simply Irresistible, John discovers he has a six-year-old daughter. He attempts various ways to try to form a relationship with her.

While on a father-daughter date, the two pass a pet store, where John unknowingly allows his daughter to “window shop.“

The dog’s little pink tongue darted out and licked Lexie’s chin. “He likes me, “ she laughed.

John looked at his watch, anxious to have Lexie and the dog part company. “The movie is going to start. We have to go now.”

“I’ve already seen it three times,” she said without taking her eyes from the dog. “You’re precious darlin’," she drawled, sounding amazingly like her mother. “Give me some sugar.”

“No.” John shook his head, suddenly feeling like a pilot trying to land an airplane on one engine. “Don’t exchange sugar.”

His plan for a quick stop turns into an epic meltdown. John scrambles to assuage his daughter’s tears, leading to a hilarious moment in the book. This full-blown meltdown is complete with puppy eyes, promises, love declarations, jubilation, and fear for John’s safety when Georgie (Lexie's mother) finds out.

[Oooh, someone's gonna be in trouble!...]
