Wait, so "Perez Hamilton" is a play on "Perez Hilton" which is a play on "Paris Hilton." Is there a word for this outside of "Borgesian"?

Perez Hilton is offensive to me, so while I admire the satire, I feel for the guy doing it. To wallow in that kind of crap style all day long...kick me in the testicles first. That's the only way to make it worse. I couldn't keep it going.

This is really well done! Not only does he manage to impart actual historical information, he does so in a pitch-perfect bitchy Perez Hilton style. Amazing.

I liked this more than I should have.
I've avoided Perez Hilton as much as possible, and even I know his penisy style.
And, yep, it's all there.

Slarty Bartfast, I first learned of Lord Cornbury when my cousin with the genealogy hobby discovered he's apparently an ancestor of ours. I took that as confirmation that my family just doesn't change much from one generation to the next.
