* Reviewers of Steven Grasse's ''The Evil Empire: 101 Ways That England Ruined the World'' are [[http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-439544/Cruel-Britannia.html unsure]] if Grasse truly believes the book's premise that the United Kingdom [[{{Demonization}} is responsible for all the world's problems since the eighteenth century]] or if he is just pointing out the hypocrisy of the scapegoating of the United States that was so common when the book was written, by satirically applying the same attitude to a different country which has also had a history of intervention in foreign affairs. The book's article on [[Wiki/{{Wikipedia}} The Other Wiki]] explicitly calls it a comic portrayal, however, which is circumstantial evidence for the "it's a joke" interpretation, despite the author appearing serious in interviews.

* The HMS STFU copied the ''Literature/HarryPotter'' section that was on our own DarthWiki/WarpThatAesop page circa January 2011 as seen [[http://www.journalfen.net/community/the_hms_stfu/526789.html here]]. Most of the commenters took it as real FanWank with only a few considering that it might be a joke. Then again, The HSM STFU usualy deals with people who have similar or worse positions in total seriousness - they were the ones who discovered ''The Girl Who Lived'', ''Hogwarts Exposed'', ''FanFic/TheLastWar'', and the complete works of pstibbons and [[Fanfic/InThisWorldAndTheNext Robst]], after all.

* [[http://michaelkelly.artofeurope.com/karl.htm Ulli's Roy Orbison In Cling-film Website]] began as a deadpan parody of self-published online erotic fiction expressing very niche fetishes. There was confusion for years about whether it was real before the webmaster finally unmasked and admitted that it was a parody.

* In an episodes of the ''Podcast/CoxNCrendor'' podcast, Jesse Cox discusses an epiphany he had watching next episode trailers for ''Series/HellsKitchen''. He explains that he realized that they were so blatantly false compared to the episodes themselves that he's not entirely certain whether they're serious and lying or meant to spoof trailers of that nature.

** "'98 Homosexual-Recruitment Drive Nearing Goal": In 1998, [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Westboro_Baptist_Church Westborough Baptist Church]] leader Fred Phelps posted this article (which was, ironically, meant to mock organizations like his) on his website as apparent "proof" that homosexuals were indeed actively trying to "recruit" others to be gay.

* Frederick Crews wrote two satirical essays-''The Pooh Perplex'' and ''Postmodern Pooh''-mocking [[WhatDoYouMeanItsNotDidactic obsessive over-analyzing]] and FauxSymbolism in literary circles by applying that same analysis-style to ''Literature/WinnieThePooh'' and playing it with a straight face. Not only were both mistaken as being serious, but the second essay includes citations to '''actual major academics''' who unironically proposed the exact same EpilepticTrees Crews was pulling out of his ass as a joke.
