episode of Futurama: called "The Farnsworth Parabox".
There is a new holiday. It's called Freedom Day. You can do whatever you want. Since you can do whatever you want, Zoidberg eats the Earth flag.

Everyone gets really mad at him. He goes to court. There was only one person who defended him. He wasn't guilty. The only one soul that would defend him was killed by the Mobile Oppression Palace ( see below) the lawyer Old Man Waterfall

Zoidberg's people enslave the human race. They get the power codes and turn off all of the power. They get everyone to build a huge mobile palace.

Flag on Mobile Oppression Palace
Notice the claw doubles as a sickle in this flag. Im sure u all know that flag?

Fry has an idea. They go to a museum and steal a heat-seeking missile. They fire in, but the mobile palace is cold-blooded. Zoidberg realizes what he's done and he burns an Earth flag. He throws it at the palace; the missile hits the palace, and it blows up. He gets a medal for saving Earth. Zoidberg is declared a hero and is honored by Nixon at a ceremony, where he unveils a new Earth flag, out of which Zoidberg is allowed to take a bite

Call of Cthulhu: The Darkness Within coming to iPhone

"Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn..." but not for long. A company called Digital Jokers, in conjunction with a subsidary called Mayhem Studios, is bringing HP Lovecraft's cuddly, horrible, insanity-inspiring Great Old One to the iPhone in the form of a graphical adventure game called Call of Cthulhu: The Darkness Within. It looks like fun, although if the laughable trailer is any indication, they'll need to do some spell checking and additional translation before the game actually goes live.

Still, Cthulhu fans will slog through some pretty bad software if it means there's a good Lovecraftian story in the mix. We'll keep an eye on this one -- graphical horror-based adventure on the iPhone done well could make for a good (or should we say evil?) time.
