Satire is a lesson, parody is a game.

I enjoy reading the humorous biographies on Dickipedia and Rotten Library. What are the other sources for this type of writing? Specifically, well-informed, well-written, humorous entries that are actually based in fact and presented in a cold, rational way. I know about The Onion and thinks it's fantastic. But it is a bit much on the absurdist side of what I'm looking for.

"Somehow ranked as the number one grossing actor in history, Eddie Murphy has appeared as a James Brown wannabe, a discontented prince, and a talking jackass. He has also played those roles in film." -Dickipedia

I love it, and want more. But where is it?

Cracked.com publishes quite a few odd-but-true lists.

I think you may be looking for the collected works of Will Cuppy.

You should look at NNDB (notable names database). It's related to rotten so you may have seen some of the content before.
