The Onion: Franz Kafka International Airport
Prague's Franz Kafka International Named World's Most Alienating Airport
Most of the time using a literary figure for parody often works through the juxtaposition of things that do not go together -- like Franz Kafka the Musical in Home Movies, or the joke about Dostoevsky at the end of the clip. This is absolutely brilliant because it is only barely more aggravating than an actual airport is. The point here is not that these things would be funny together, but that Kafka was RIGHT ABOUT EVERYTHING.
