Mock Talent?
A mock talent is a parody of a Fanpop's Got Talent entry, created for fun and humor. As such you can enter any of the same types of content you would for the competition in earnest (see the summary article for details): images, articles,...

The jokester

"Then you show up and drink my poison!"

Barnaby laughed with the others, but his heart wasn't in it. He was concentrating too hard. Should he have picked one that was more ribald?
