Carroll was famous for parodying others, and recently I've been collecting together parodies of Carroll's verse. Here's a verse from a parody of "The Walrus and the Carpenter" from Leslie Barker's "All Us Through the Magnifying Glass". This is a decidedly curious book which marries the author's love of Carroll with his passion for stamp collecting. There are a number of stamp related parodies in the book and here's a verse from Father William.

"The dealer said the Auctioneer
Could trot a mile or so
And that his prices never were
conveniently low

and waited in a row"

The parodies are not of the best, but perhaps the extraordinary thing about them is not how they are done, but the fact that they are done at all!
