Summary/Abstract: This work is about the relation between the epic singer Mehmed Kolaković and the epic hero Budalina Tale. Both of them I consider characters, because I encounter them in texts. Those texts I define as biographies and biographies like selection of anecdotes-biographemes from hero’s life. From noticed similarity on the level of anecdote-biographer appears similar – parodic – relation to the worlds in which they are moving: Meho to begic and Tale to the epic world. With such relation, mentioned worlds are not terminated, which must have been a normal consequence of the parody, but, on the contrary, it extends their age lasting.
