NOBODY EXPECTS THE SPANISH INQUISITION!

I had this classic Monty Python sketch in my head this morning:

It struck me that now when I hear the words “Spanish Inquisition” my first reaction is to laugh rather than to be horrified by all of the lives it unjustly destroyed. I am not sure how to feel about this. I suspect that this reaction is shared by most others who are familiar with the sketch. Are there other examples of pop culture rehabilitating an atrocity to this wide extent?
