Much like a Recycled Script, a Parrot Parody occurs when every time somebody parodies a show/movie/book (or uses a Captain Ersatz version), they use the same jokes. Evidently, they're unaware of the concept of "originality". Some examples:

First Installment Wins, Popculture Osmosis, and Small Reference Pools are all related to this in one way or another.

  • Dana Carvey's impression of George H.W. Bush eventually became the parody that everyone did, down to catch-phrases Carvey invented.
  • Harry Potter: Harry's perpetually 11 years old, and fights Voldemort on a weekly basis.
  • Romeo and Juliet: The balcony scene's the only scene in the entire play. Plus, if the characters are still in school, this play is used about 3/4 of the time.
  • Star Wars: Always has the Luke, I Am Your Father moment.
  • Twilight: Half sparkly vampires, half shirtless werewolves. (Well, technically, I'm sure there are other jokes; I've just never followed the series).
  • X-Men: Do I even need to say it?
    • Or they have Cyclops wailing, "JEEEEAAAAAANNNN" even though Jean is (currently) dead and he's with Emma Frost these days.
  • Any Evil Dead sendoffs usually has either "This is my boomstick" or "good, bad, I'm the guy with the gun."
  • Xena: Warrior Princess: The Double Entrende and Les Yay levels are cranked Up to Eleven.

Do We Have This One?? If not, Rolling Updates as they occur.
