I believe it was the ABC sketch comedy show Fridays
that did a Jonestown skit that went:
Person 1 - I'm hot.
Person 2 - I'm thirsty.
Person 3 - I want to commit mass suicide.
Then a mock Mr. Kool busts through wall, declares "Oh yeah!", and distributes juice to people who immediately keel over.
Needless to say, I highly approve of inappropriate Jonestown jokes.
