Just on the crazy conspiracy theory angle, it might be funny if somebody made a spoof of Deus Ex in TDM with medieval versions of the conspiracies and played like DX. I could see it.
The funniest thing I planned for an FM was for T2, I had Bafford having his face carved into the side of a mountain, and the mission was set in the construction site. I got a lot of it built, but the only part of it that saw the light of day was a bit of it copy/pasted into my part of The Chain Project.

It's such a distant memory now. I'd need to go back and play around with it to remember, since I remember it being funny in places but struggle to remember the details now.
It was indeed called Mount Bafford. I recall I made a miniature version of the whole scene that made me laugh, like the kind of model of projects people put in lobbies. It was this little village and mountain with this ridiculous massive head at the top of it.
And there were these letters back and forth and laying around as the head engineer was of split opinion. On the one hand, they recognized his demands were physically impossible and he needed to greatly modify his expectations to something more modest, but on the other hand they wanted to keep the money coming in so tried to make it seem like everything was on track and hiding the limits as long as they could... while Bafford kept throwing more money and more ridiculous demands at them and also wanted to make a site visit to see that things were on track, and how they were going to deal with that with a Potemkin head. The whole situation was kind of funny. And I vaguely recall something about a threat to detonate explosives over his face to blemish it as part of a blackmail scheme, and Bafford getting hysterical about it.
I think if I were to come back to it now, I might play him as a Trump kind of character with unending narcissism, with similar kinds of speech patterns and hubris. Like, "Listen, I want the head to be visible for 200 leagues in all directions. And I want beautiful golden hair flowing down the north side. I'm talking about covering the entire slope, okay? It will be a beautiful head and beautiful hair that will look down on the villages and inspire fear and awe among the peasants, okay? If you can't do it, I'll find an engineer that can."

A policy can't stop someone from making a comedic fan mission.
As for the suggestion, it's yet another brainfart that will go nowhere.

what is funny in some countries, isn't funny in others, so funny things in fan missions have been missed by people who can't relate to them. although in the uk funny things in one county, ain't funny in another.
Actually president trump wants his face carved onto mount rushmore, even though there isn't any room for it.
