• A literary or artistic work that imitates the characteristic style of an author or a work for comic effect or ridicule.

Did you copy the original post almost word for word for comic effect or to ridicule its “helpfulness”? Calling this plagiarism “a parody” is like saying that Gus Van Sant’s version of Psycho is a parody of Hitchcock, instead of calling it what it is: a terrible remake.
