A parody is a special piece of art.
Parodies make fun of another piece of art by mocking it.
For example, in a serious Western movie, the good guys always seem to shoot better and faster than the bad guys. In a Western parody, this might be exaggerated by showing a good guy firing a single shot, and a dozen of the bad guys falling from their horses as a result.
- Blazing Saddles is a parody of Western movies in general,
- Spaceballs is a parody of the Star Wars movies, and science fiction in general,
- Men in Tights is a parody of Robin Hood movies,
