"parity" for "parody"

“Parroty” for “parody” has been discussed at
http://eggcorns.lascribe.net/forum/view … hp?id=1409

And my own discussion of “parody” for “parity” is at
http://eggcorns.lascribe.net/forum/view … hp?id=5591

I decided to flip that last one around and see to what degree it may be reversible. I found a very few substitutions of “parity” for “parody”—probably less than 20 unique hits. Examples:

It’s a PARITY jackoff, the name was spelled that way on purpose!

I’m guessing it’s a parity on all the GS vrs.whatever threads?

It’s a parity of Team Fortress 2’s Spy
If he didn’t have a mask it would just be a Ditto with a knife, no one would get it…

It’s a parity of the comments Geraldine Ferraro made about Obama.

It’s a parity. Say it. Parroty.
