   So I work at a grocery store, and now's the time of year when people are buying a lot of corn on the cob, for whatever reason.


You mean they're doing other things with it beside eating it?

The Day the Earth Stood Stupid, original air date 18 February, 2001.



Carl and son, as featured in some episode of Aqua Teen Hunger Force; these characters were originally featured on Space Ghost C2C, episode Chambraigne, original air date October 8, 1999. 

Not only that but both brains speak in a mopey portentous basso voice.  Wonder if someone on the Futurama staff was doing a tribute?  Had some forgotten bong-addled memories?  Or is there some long lasting tradition of malevolent floating brains with monotonous rumbly speech? 

Groening was on SGC2C so there's that. 

YouTube - Space Ghost Coast To Coast - Chambraigne part 1

"Carl: It doesn't work! It's psychosomatic! It's a placebo!
Little Carl: (incoherent squeaking)
Space Ghost: Huh, those are big words. Maybe I should wash my hair again."

My dad has my old phone, and didn't change any of the settings. Every time he gets a text message the futurama theme plays. He has no idea what Futurama is, so every one it goes off I can't do anything but laugh a little.

Early days yet, but I get the feeling this breakthrough is going to be a big part of our future lives.

a few weeks ago,  I went to southport for a holiday, and on the way there, I saw a sign that pointed to a place called farnworth.
That robot with a torch for a head reminded me of that robot who is a cctv camera, who has evidence in insane in the mainframe.

WILLSTER - Stop double-posting or you will be banned. You can EDIT the existing post if you have an afterthought.

Though to be fair, none of what you've had to say so far has been even remotely interesting, so it would be better if you'd just piss off.

I wouldn't be surprised because Futurama was mentioned on Aqua Teen

Has anyone seen that movie called District 9 ? Well anyways, the aliens in that movie kind of reminded of Zoidberg...i guess it was the way their mouths looked.

Today at my local fair I saw this guy who was like a real-life Fry. He right away reminded me of him. He was wearing a white t-shirt with a red sweatshirt, had blue jean shorts on, and even had the black and white shoes. He either had blond or orangish blond hair. He even sounded  a bit like him.

Funplex, the most recent album by the B-52's, has a song called "Love in the Year 3000." While I have no idea if it was influenced at all by Futurama, lines such as the refrain of "Robots, booty-bots, eroto-bots" and "Tentative tentacles are grabbing me / We're making space-love in zero gravity" do conjure up images of familiar scenes...

I was just doing some not-so-random Futurama-related google searches and I discovered that there is actually a band in existance named Leaf Seven.  And one of their band members is a Phil F-something....

Today I was leafing through one of my local newspapers in a waiting room, and this comic reminded me of Futurama for reasons that should be obvious...



(The implication that this whole Nixon thing has been a recurring theme in the strip just amuses me even more.)

My boyfriend's floppy fringe that covers the entire right side of his face makes him look like a younger, more adorable, slightly more feminine, yet male Leela.

What reminds me of Futurama?

Seeing references to it in unexpected places, for instance this review of Pixar's Up:

"While Pixar's competitors are content to go for the lowest common denominator when it comes to humor, Pixar sets the standard for smart comedy that can appeal to young and old. Up features classic cartoon gags taken straight from Looney Tunes and smart inside jokes that rival those seen on Futurama."

Whenever I hear anyone say the words, "Good news," I can't help but snicker.

Also, any talking toy makes me think of, "Eeheeheehee! QUIT TOUCHIN' MY JUNK, PERVERT!"

I have a friend who reminds me of Futurama.  When told something, he invariably answers like Bender "I don't like where this is going".

In my year 11 - 12 Geography class we talked alot about you know; global warming, pollution and over-population in Mega Cities and so on.
Well whenever we get on to one of these Topic's my Geography teacher would ask my class for what we thought could be possible solutions to these issues and every single time she asked, my two friends would say "Kill all Humans! Duh!" and of course that immediatly starts me thinking of Futurama and what made it funnier (though also extremely sad) is that nearly no body in my class bothers to watch Futurama so they never understood why I was cracking up so hard!

Just finished Strong Bad's Cool Game For Attractive People - Dangeresqe 3: The Criminal Projective or,
SGP4AP - D3:TCP and during the credits I saw the name "Pazuzu" in the "thanks" section, which is probably somebody's pet's name. I quickly hit Prt Scr before it left the screen.



Reflexes!

And that's what reminded me of Futurama.

'Psyche Rock' - Pierre Henry

The moon in 'A Trip to the Moon'

A lot of titles that have been parodied now make me think of Futurama more than the actual thing the title belongs to -eg. Love's Labours Lost and Paradise Lost

Richard Nixon

'The Best' - Joe Esposito

Lots of aspects of Star Trek

Al Gore

Stephen Hawking

String theory, hell, most 'big' scientific theories make me think back to some concept from Futurama

Binary code

The Harlem Globetrotters

Dungeons and Dragons

I was was watching the restaurant on the BBC last night, and one of the chains operated by a couple was Yo sushi, which, like all sushi bars had a conveyer belt running through which food running on it. It immediately reminded me of when Fry and bender were eating in that restaurant in episode 103.

Just remembered, last night on Life, David Attenborough described a bird, or rather group of birds, as "full of fish".

It was something like "Once they're full of fish, they head back to...etc"

Unfortunately, he wasn't talking about penguins.
