Dune References in (Un)Popular Media

I was looking for Dune references in this or that and came across a site called DUNE2K.COM, where many references are listed (http://forum.dune2k.com/topic/21133-dun ... lar-media/). I don't think there's a thread like that on this site (I looked for it) and decided to steal their idea- I even stole the topic title since I'm not clever enough to come up with something like that. I hope that's okay with everyone, and even if it's not, what's done is done. Anyway...

President George W. Bush: That's three. You thought I wasn't paying attention, now did you? Where's this one from?

Condoleeza Rice: Yemen.

President George W. Bush: Good one, but I'm not that stupid. You mean Fremen.

Dick Cheney: No, it's Yemen. "Fremen" is from the science fiction book Dune!

President George W. Bush: Ok, fair enough.

Condoleeza Rice: And you're going to need to contact Mubarak.

Mandy takes part in a beauty pageant. One part of the contest is called "Gom Jabbar" by the host, and a girl is shown yelling "it burns!" as she takes her hand out of a box. The judges deduct points.

Apparently, when this guy got scared, he would chant to himself, "I must not fear, fear is the mind killer, fear is the little death that brings total oblivion" (a modified litany against fear).

Has anyone ever read this? It looks like it might be horrible (although I do like the cover), but who knows?

In regards to Doon, I had a good laugh at most of it, but when the end battles revolve around a cooking contest... :crazy:
