Poe's law:

"Without a blatant display of humor, it is impossible to create a parody of extremism or fundamentalism that someone won't mistake for the real thing."

Though I've always liked Morgan's formulation better (and it pre-dates):

"Any sufficiently advanced troll is indistinguishable from a genuine kook."
