Anyone recall a sheet music joke piece?

Searching for a joke musical "piece" somewhat like this.

lekvar recently made a comment referring to the above musical joke.

It jogged my memory... I'd seen a similar kind of thing something on the order of a dozen years ago, while I was still doing music competitions. The only thing I remember about it is that it was a prelude, and the starting tempo was, "Faster" (which I found totally hilarious at the time). Anyone have any idea what this might have been or where I can find it? I seem to recall it being a little more subtle than lekvar's reference (funny as that is).

I don't know if it'll help, but I found the one I linked to here, and there's more examples of notation humor .

I think I remember a P.D.Q. Bach score with a starting tempo of "faster". It's been years, though.

ALongDecember's link has it; it's "Prelude and The Last Hope in C and C# Minor" by John Stump.
