*A cyberpunk political drama set in a world where consciousness uploading is common and uploaded consciousnesses are permitted to vote. In this world political power is directly proportional to processing power. Parties gain additional votes for themselves by running many concurrent copies of uploaded supporters. Whichever party has the resources to copy its supporters the most times wins the election

*A skit examining the Trolley Problem, except it's set in Mr.Rogers' Neighborhood of Make-Believe, and instead of examining whether it's ok to kill one person to save several people, it examines whether it's ok to mildly bruise a real person to save the life of a make believe person.

*A person deals with the guilt of a hit-and-run accident in a world in which staying with the body of an accident victim causes them to magically come back to life. "magically come back to life" is the actual termonology used in the story. "If only I hadn't driven away," they lament, "than those people would have magically come back to life"

*Skit: fake commercial advertising a satanic version of Lucky Charms cereal with marshmallow goat heads, sacrificial daggers, voodoo dolls, and necronomicons

*Steampunk story where the twist is that instead of being set in the past it's set in the Amish areas of modern Penmsylvania

EDIT:
another idea:

*Sesame Street episode where the count goes full-on vampire and has to be subdued with the lowercase letter "t"

It is an unfortunate fact that every man who seeks to disseminate knowledge must contend not only against ignorance itself, but against false instruction as well. No sooner do we deem ourselves free from a particularly gross superstition, than we are confronted by some enemy to learning who would plunge us back into the darkness -H.P.Lovecraft

He who fights with monsters must take care lest he thereby become a monster -Nietzsche

Look up the Cereal Killers trading cards by Wax Eye; I think either their Lucky Charms or Trix parody does something like that  :lulz:
There is no reason to,
Be ashamed of poetry. It,
Is natural. But you should,
Still do it in private,
And wash your hands afterward.

A parody of A Clockwork Orange in which Alex is replaced with Schroeder from the comic strip Peanuts, his droogs are replaced with other Peanuts characters, and P.R.Deltoid's voice sounds like a trombone

EDIT:

"*Wah wah wah*"

"Not true, sir. It was only a slight tolchock. She was breathing, I swear it."

"*Wah wah*"

"You try to frighten me, sir, admit so, sir. This is some new form of torture."



EDIT:
Another idea:

Comedy sketch in which Charles Manson is a high school English teacher who assigns his students to analyze the symbolism in a "poem" which is actually the song "Helter Skelter" by the Beatles.

A Sesame Street episode dealing with religious diversity with a side focus on teaching alphabet letters, including muppet versions of various religious fingues including Jesus of Nazareth - who has an aside about the lowercase letter "t" - and Charles Manson - who teaches the kids about the letter "X"

A podcast which consists of voicemail, one person's and then another and another, so the conversation is chronologically disoriented.

A shaggy-dog-story/horror/suspense/comedy/drama about a Las Vegas magician who has committed a series of murders and been sentenced to death. The film follows the final hours prior to the execution, leading up to the execution itself. In the twist ending, the lights flicker during the execution, and when they come back on we see that the condemned man and the executioner have suddenly and inexplicably swapped places. The magician, now dressed in his full stage get-up, flicks the switch that sets the execution device going, and shouts "Ta-da". Then the credits roll.
