A popular pastime among forum users is to write songs about the One True Comic or the One True Thread. In some cases this is accomplished through an actual original composition, but more usually it is by modifying the lyrics of an existing song. These parodies or filks are known as "ottifications" (derived from "OTT"). Most are just written, but some have been performed and recorded. Below are lists of these songs.
