11 Parodies I Made of the Obama Hope Poster
written by Sam Greenspan

Many people were surprised that I didn't do any list related to the inauguration on Tuesday. (I was focusing my attention on my "Lost" list. Priorities, you know?)

So I decided to do something for the Obama inauguration. And this is what happened.

Here are 11 spoofs and parodies I made of the iconic Obama "HOPE" poster. I know that other people have parodied this thing before, so I tried to make sure none of the parodies I made had been done before. Fortunately, some combination of my insanity, my love of wordplay and my strange, strange comedic world view allowed me to keep it all unique.
  1. Don't move to Albuquerque


  2. I used a lot of red


  3. No one would ever believe I'd make this reference


  4. Double -ope


  5. Ooh... edgy!


  6. There's...


  7. My personal favorite of all these (because it's so nerdy)


  8. Sort of pretty colors


  9. You're a very strange person, Jack


  10. The glove snaps


  11. My other favorite (because it's even nerdier)
