Parody science, sometimes called spoof science, is the act of mocking science in a satirical way. Science can be parodied for a purpose, ranging from social commentary and making political points, to humor for its own sake.

Parody science is different from science humor or from real science that happens to be humorous, in that parody science has little or no basis in real science.
