What do you think and if it were to become reality would you drink it?

I'd buy five cases even if it was tonic water, because it's Slurm, dammit!

I've always imagined it as a really syrupy Mountain Dew...

Slurm, eh?  I love the tagline: "It's Highly Addictive!"

Sign me up for a case or 2...

LOVE the idea, but there are a couple negatives.

First- Fox actually doing something for Futurama?

Second- They have only tried to make sure that nobody can produce a drink named Slurm, It doesn't mean their going to make it.

Third- If it is true and they do make it the drink might be horrible crap like second hand soda and nowhere compare to sodas like cola and pepsi.

True, but it'll probably still taste better than what comes out of a colossal worm hiney...

Now McDonald's needs to market Popplers.  big grin

Pop a Poppler in your mouth / when you come to Fishy Joe's

What they're made of is a mystery / where they come fron no one knows

You can pick 'em / you can flick 'em / you can chew 'em / you can stick 'em

If you promise not to sue us / you can shove one up your nose!

If Popplers were also made I would flip out.

Ahh, I could do with one of those now....

A nice gin and tonic sans gin. (Save that for when I really need it...)

Erh?  confused

Not a 'Gin-and-Slurm'?

Though, you'll probably probably need blend it thoroughly...
Y'know? In a paint mixer?  laff
Shaken, not stirred...
You might also use 'Slurm Lite' or it could turn out like a 'Slurm Sunrise'.   roll eyes

 SLURM patent app. info... 

 Yeah, I read that patent application!!  That will be great if Slurm is a real brand name product to consume!!  I waited FOREVER for Jolt to come out, way back then, and wasn't disappointed!! So Slurm will be a highly anticipated beverage on my part!!

Maybe, we could drink Slurm as an after dinner aperitif like Samuel Adams Beer!!  I love Sam AdAms!!  It's one of the only beers that don't give me a killer hangover!!  that and Turtle beer!!   wink

Don't think it would work as an aperitif.  Remember it's motto: "SLURM - It's Highly Addictive!" 

BTW, you're about the only person I know who says they love Sam Adams as much as I do.  Here's to good brew! *opens 2 Sam Adams, hands one to HypnoBrecky*

Now, back to Slurm...

  A yup!   seattlejohn01 says,"a yup."  Then we hear the"King of the Hill" music and Hank Hill comes out and joins us in the alley for a beer.  Then Hank adds, "A yup."  The world is a'ight and even keeled....

Don't forget Boomhauer.  "A yup". 

Edit - Dale would join us, but he thinks we're "Government Agents!", and Bill is on the base, cutting the Colonel's hair...

I love Bobby.  I can see Hank now, " You know, Bobby, I love you; no matter what.  A yup."

edit- Hank would be all accepting because he's just that kind of man.  No matter what his preconceived ideas are of the world, he'd be liquid enough to adapt to a real monkey wrench being thrown into his life and still try his hardest to look like it didn't bowl him over!!

edit-  And isn't it funny that the Hill has lasted longer than the show that it was spun off!!??!! 

edit- this show: 


edit-  You wouldn't believe how many years I have spent chuckling over this falsehood!  I mean better 'n a decade!  Well, I sure enjoyed my misinformation for as long as it lasted till you "myth-busted" my arse over my false belief, seattlejohn01!   wink  A relief to be jivin' on the correct street lore, now, SJ1!   flirt Thanks bunches for settin' me straight... Ta, for now, SJ1... Laters...  cool

Hold the phone...

Gotta contradict you here, HB.  King of the Hill is an original show; you're thinking that Hank Hill came from Beavis & Butthead.  It was the character of Mr. Anderson who came from Beavis & Butthead; both characters are voiced by Mike Judge (and sound exactly the same), so it's an easy mistake to make.

Uh huh, huh, huh, huh...Shut up, Fartknocker!

This is amazing info!

The part of me that is cynical about the way things go in Hollywood makes me wonder if they are doing all this to prevent some future entrepreneur from creating a beverage with the Slurm name?  The hopeless optimist in me hopes they are doing it so if they wind up eventually doing  some viral marketing campaign for Futurama like they did for the Simpsons movie (there they worked with "7-11" stories to turn certain stores into "Quickie Marts" selling versions of fast food mentioned on the Simpsons) .. I imagine they had to go through the same patent process for this.   Maybe (hope against hope) they are paving the way to create "Slurm" products for any possible viral marketing campaigns they might do for Futurama products that would let them temporarily sell "Slurm"


PS-  I do not drink soda often, so I would not be a big Slurm fan, but as some people have observed here, I do imagine it as some ultra hyper caffinated Mountain Dew like product... but it also glows in the dark!

Well, maybe there will be an uptake in a rush of new SLURM merchandise so I can covet something besides this:  MY FAVORITE SLURM BASEBALL CAP...
