If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, how do we assess the art form of Twitter parody? Faux Pelini, which was created in 2010 and now has over 104,000 followers, ranks among a handful of acts who have created hilarious caricatures of professional and college sports figures. Here's a sampling of the best:
Jason Kid is great coach I wish him best luck for next season for "NBADL."- Mikhail Prokhorov (@Fake_Prokhorov) June 29, 2014
Finally, all of Brazil can feel what it's like to be a Kansas football fan.- Fake Dan Beebe (@DanBeebe) July 8, 2014
Hernandez, Wilfork, Gronkowski, Mayo, Spikes, Vollmer, Kelly, Boyce. How are we 12-4 you ask? Because I'm better than you. #kisstherings- Fake Bill Belichick (@CockyBelichick) January 6, 2014
But he isn't, so what's your point? RT @mohamad_barada if Stephen Curry was 6'8, 260lbs. this conversation would be a joke.- Not Bill Walton (@NotBillWalton) August 13, 2014
Siri, search for broom stores in Memphis.- Gregory Popovich (@FakeCoachPop) May 26, 2013
Stand by. The Main Event will walk on court shortly... #humble- Not Roger Federer (@PseudoFed) July 4, 2014
Overall I believe criticism of England is little bit harsh. They can still finish 4th in their group and that is little bit like a trophy.
