      Cue mass googling of Godwin's law. That's funny.
      I liked this from the Wikipedia entry for Godwin's law:
      In a Christmas Day review of The Spirit, New York Times movie critic
      A.O. Scott suggested that "a similar axiom" to Godwin's Law, "applied
      to Hollywood, would stipulate that every movie star must eventually
      dress up in a German military uniform."
