One of the things that strikes (as a couple of deep admirers of Camus and lovers of his work) is how readily existentialism lends itself to parody. One of the earliest, and funniest, is by Paul Jennings (not the Aussie) reprinted in Dwight Macdonald's Parodies. The basic concept of his "Resistentialism" is Les choses sont contre nous. From its key figure Pierre-Marie Ventre he traces influence from Freidegg and Heidansiecker. A must read for cognoscenti.
