Some subscribers to RUME might be interested in "Satirical Essays By 
Diana Senechal and Arnold Arons." The abstract reads:

ABSTRACT:  I provide excerpts  for the following satirical essays by 
Diana Senechal and Arnold Arons:

  (a) "Research Breakthrough! Silver Bullet Found" [Senechal (2012)], 
online at <http://bit.ly/Q1vRee>;

(b) "Educational Practices - an Expert View of Current Trends" [Arons 
(1973)], online to subscribers of "The Physics Teacher" at 

(c) "An expert visit to the cognitive domain" [Arons (1984)], online 
to subscribers of "The Physics Teacher" at <http://bit.ly/LdVDtY>.

Arons was influenced by Frank Sullivan's <http://bit.ly/SV48uk> "Mr. 
Arbuthnot," the cliche expert, who futilely battled the banal in 
popular writing. Fortunately, Arbuthnot lives on in essays by Ben 
Yagoda (2001?) <http://bit.ly/UvHSxV> "24/7 With the Cliche Expert" 
at <http://bit.ly/TaI9ET> and Frank Prial (2006) 
<http://bit.ly/R7OPPz> "Wine talk: Rolling out those chewy behemoths" 
at <http://nyti.ms/Q1IyWt>.

And also - you know -  having said that, in real time and for texters 
and googlers, the bottom line is that the imperial concerns of the 
real-time marketplace demand use of awesome, amazing, and 
game-changing cliches not only prior to, but at the end of the day, 
around the clock, and 24/7.
