I'd be interested to read the section you mention, but I don't find one by
that title or description in my copy of Goodrick (Zondervan/Multnomah, 2d
ed., 1980). Can you give us more specifics on the edition in which you find
it and page refs.? Thanks,

[My favorite along this line is Moises Silva's parody in the introduction
(ch. 1, pp. 11ff) to _God, Language, & Scripture_ (Zondervan, 1990).]
