There's an episode of South Park where buried in the terms and agreement of iTunes, you agreed that Apple could forcibly make you into a human centipede. See: South Park human centipede

In the real world could this happen? They did agree to the terms and conditions which did include that.

  • Related, The Human Centipede. I think South Park is parodying the Dutch horror film.
