Richard Nixon refers to his assistant as the "Headless Clone of Agnew". In the Futurama movie "Into the Wild Green Yonder", the original headless body of Agnew is killed, so his DNA was cloned at some point between then and now in order to reprise the character. (Note: Spiro Agnew was U.S. vice president from 1968 to 1972, under President Richard Nixon. In 1972, he resigned from office as part of a deal that allowed him to escape charges of extortion, tax fraud, bribery, and conspiracy allegedly committed during his many years in various elected offices. Nixon appointed House Minority Leader Gerald Ford to replace him, who incidentally became president after Nixon's resignation.) See more
