    • Texas Tower Massacre
      Ned Flanders has a dream in which he is standing atop a tower, picking off random people with an assault rifle. This is obviously alluding to Charles Whitman's part in what has become known as the Texas Tower Massacre. Whitman killed fourteen and injured dozens when he went on a ninety minute shooting rampage from the Tower of the University of Texas.
