In last week's Weekly World News, there was an article about <forgot the number> Sexiest Female Cartoon Characters.  And Leela was in it!  The article read that she was the 'tomboyish cyclops from Futurama who kicks butt' or something like that.  Don't really remember.

It's about time Futurama started getting a little recocnition like that, don't you think?

Wow, I don't believe it! They briefly mentioned a Futurama character in an article from some magazine/newspaper? It must mean Futurama is coming back!
Seriously, why do people think it's necessary to start threads like this?

It doesn't seem to me that he's suggesting that this mention means Futurama's coming back.  I think it's pretty cool that Leela got mentioned in an article in a national mag.

I don't remember seeing the original poster saying anything about them bringing back the show because of this?

Seriously, why do people bother making negative comments in a positive thread? 

I thought this was cool.

Yeah, although I wouldn't call Leela 'tomboyish'. She's quite feminine in her own way.

That's cool. And I think that Leela's tomboy image comes mostly from Amy's insults.

Weekly World News is a strictly for entertainment purposes tabloid.
They're the paper with such stupendous stories as I Was Satan's Love Child,
Bigfoot Is My Private Love Slave and other great tales. A friend of mine was the scientist in a series of  "Capturing Bigfoot" pictures around fifteen years ago. A recent issue had an article about Sadam Hussein raising velociraptors for use against the infidel in warfare.

No one said anything about it being a sign of Futurama's return.

Now who's jumping to conclusions?

My favorite article was the one about Satan's burial ground being found.  They had testimony from an expert on demonology who said that, "These skulls have horns.  Humans have skulls, but humans do not have horns."  Funny stuff.

Well, tabloid or no, it'd still be just a matter of opinion in this case. They weren't stating any facts or anything. However, it is grand that a Futurama character is getting some publicity nowadays. That can only be good.

Such threads aren't for hope that Futurama would return. It just nice to see that even after so many years "relatively" the show has not been forgotten and it's still well stuck in public concious.... Lost but not forgotten.

The truth is always accidental.  I'm pretty sure there is a retraction in the next issue.

Correction
In last week's issue of Weekly World News, the headline reading "Earth Actually Round" should have read "Earth Actually Flat."

The editors express their apologies for the confusion.
