Nukes and Hitler in Popular Culture

Update: Changed dead "In popular history" history link to a link for the discussion about the deletion. Btw, apparently there is still a Wikipedia policy page about this, called Wikipedia:"In popular culture" articles, though that is more about "In popular culture" subpages than sections. Still, it does itself now have an "In popular culture" in popular culture section. :D

Btw, I love the images and captions on this policy page.

Today's xkcd makes fun of the "In Popular Culture" section that litters some Wikipedia articles with references to TV shows and such. The mouse-over text jokes about the day when we have a Wikipedia article about the "In Popular Culture" section with its own "In Popular Culture" section that references that very xkcd comic. So I went hunting for aforementioned Wikipedia article, and it doesn't exist. (Although... I'm sure someone's attempted to create it and had it speedy-deleted already... *Checks*... Aha! I was right!) I then searched for ["in popular culture"] on Google, and I was amused/appalled at the top results:

Update: Hahaha! I think I like the Live Search results even better:

:D
