Yeah, I hid that one a few minutes ago, due to the obvious trademark problem.

I hadn't hidden that one, but in retrospect I'm not sure why not.  So I did now.

Hidden due to the obvious trademark problem.

Yes, all of these probably qualify as parody and as such are legal to

law.  They would be welcome at Uncyclopedia.  But that does not make
them public domain clip art.
