In January of 1997, a children's, er "young adult's" book series called Goosebumps included a parody of Mortal Kombat. (Actually this wasn't Goosebumps itself, but a spin-off series called Give Yourself Goosebumps, a Choose Your Own Adventure type book). It is #13 in the series, and it is called "Scream of the Evil Genie". When I found out about this, I retyped the relevant parts and uploaded them here for everyone interested. If you only want the parts with the Mortal Kombat parody, this is the place to go :) If you want the whole thing, buy it.
I tried to keep everything as close to the original version as possible when I retyped it. I won't spoil too much of it, but the video game within the book is called "Mortal Revenge", and like its counterpart, Mortal Kombat, it includes ninjas and four-armed monsters.
