The push to build a new downtown in the county's last available green space is due for a parody. Now it has one.
ParchMay Farm Center is a (fake) proposal to turn the old Tennessee State Penitentiary into some sort of May Town, mixed-use development. As you can see, ParchMay's website
is a low-rent copy of May Town's
, only with the absurdity knob cranked to 11.
Pith's favorite feature of the site (thus far): ParchMay's bullet-proof plan for success.
* Phase 1 -- Situate new ParchMay Farm Center on the site of old Tennessee State Penitentiary
* Phase 2 -- ???
* Phase 3 -- PROFIT!
Poke around the site for even more hilarity. In the meantime, we'll be trying to discover the identities of the as-yet-unnamed evil geniuses behind it, so that we may shower them with praise and comped domestic drafts.
ParchMay is no longer an orphan. We're happy to announce that local software designer Rick Bradley
is the proud father of Nashville's Best Parody Website of 2009 (so far). Congratulations Rick! What your baby lacks in beauty it more than makes up for in satirical whimsy. You should be proud.
