4 What with the flag being behind them, I wonder what they're all looking at so raptly?

5 They are looking at the audience. Joshiraku is an anime about rakugo performers (a bizzaro comedy actually). Often the audience is inside the anime, but some of the comedy routine is directed straight at the 4th wall.

Anyway, Cthulhu is one of the horrors, the elder gods, the mere contemplation of which is supposed to bring insanity.

It says here. If you've been reading Lovecraft.

Obviously people will make fun of that, and it's become something of a meme. For instance, you can get a Cthulhu plush. Perfect gift for the baby in your life.

And someone did a flash animation called "Cutethulhu" which, if you're going to watch, you should watch all the way to the end.

So the meme is to try to put Cthulhu into any kind of place where he obviously doesn't belong.

By the way, I'm convinced that... spoiler about the web comic "Freefall"

9 By the way, you get bonus points for mixing the Cthulhu meme with another meme (e.g. Dr. Who), and even more bonus points for managing a pun. So this one is a three-fer.
