Does anyone know of any venues for publishing ( not just "posting" song parodies...including irreverent ones (which many are)? I'm talking here about "Sung to the Tune of..." stuff with our new lyrics.

I personally can’t think of any that would be published that are not performed first. If people are making money from it, I think it’s in the performance of it that makes it popular and sellable (I guess like most music?) Forbidden Broadway is a group that performs only parodies “sung to the tune of”. Weird Al performs or posts on YouTube and I’m not sure if he can make money from sheet music unless the tunes are his. To sell his songs I think he needs permission from the composer. Hopefully I understood your question correctly.
