I need to make a parody of the Lady Macbeth's soliloquy "glamis thou art...."
What ideas could I use to create a parody out of Lady Macbeth's soliloquy in Act I, scene V?

I have seen a lot of glimpses of this speech in people making fun of it. For example, I saw an old Bewitched episode where the spell was "Out darn spot!" You could cover yourself with polka dots and give the same speech. It would be hilarious.
You could play on words such as "That I may pour my spirits in thine ear" with literally having her pour alcohol in his ear. Macbeth could be silently sitting there next to her as she goes through her thoughts. Also the words "yet do I fear thy nature;
It is too full o' the milk of human kindness" could include Macbeth sucking on a baby bottle, playing up his weakness as a man.
Make Lady Macbeth a big brute of a woman who bears a large knife, while Macbeth himself is a whiny little man with no backbone.
Good luck! Sounds fun!
