Dermot Mulroney is totally the real life version of That Guy.

In my Math class we had a substitute who was taking attendance. He called on a kid named Ben who responds right away by shouting " I know not of this Ben! My name is Titanius Anglesmith, Fancyman of Cornwood! I nearly exploded from the awesomeness of that moment.

That is fantastic. big grin Also, Danny, you are totally right about Dermot Mulroney. I'm not sure why I didn't see it before.

Yesterday I went over to a friend's house. On the way I stopped at Dutch Bros., which is a coffee chain in the western US. For those of you who don't know, their logo, which is on all their cups, is a windmill. When I went inside my friend's house, her husband pointed to my coffee cup and yelled, "WINDMILLS DO NOT WORK THAT WAY!" I almost spat coffee all over myself. I had no idea they were Futurama fans, but it turns out they both are. So that's pretty awesome.

We were eating in a restaurant a few days ago, and so many little things that popped up turned into the perfect moment for a Futurama reference. When someone asked where the wine list was, I immediately responded with "No poison for us, thanks." When we were handed bread it was "Wow, free bread in a restaurant!" Overall there was pretty much everything except spice weasels.

I saw a truck commercial that said "When man and machine connect, magic happens" reminded me of Fry and Bender. Oh, and when I went to see my grandmother in the hospital yesterday, her walker had a logo that said "Dolomite". laff

Whenever I see wholegrain bread, it makes me think of Lrrr's description of "Wholegrain goat-food".

An accurate description as well, I might add.

I had forgotten, but a week ago Friday I was up in Bellingham WA playing poker, and there's a little curio shop in the lobby that had a ceramic zebra that looked a lot like HookerBot 5000's avy smile

But Frida's "I'm dead, I'm dead, eat only natural wholegrain brea-" line from ITWGY never springs to your mind?! tongue

Not yet, but I'm sure it will now that you've brought it up. :P

But the reason Lrrr's line sticks to mind is because I agree with him. Wholegrain bread is disgusting.

Someone rented a carpet cleaning machine at work the other day, a transaction for which one must provide a photo ID. While I ordinarily hate doing the paperwork for these rentals, I had a moment of dorky giddiness when the guy handed me his driver's license and I saw that his home address was in Nutley, New Jersey. I wonder if he's ever taken the 10:15 bus...

I had a similar experience as this in my art history class, when of all places the professor could have picked as the location of a hypothetical art historian who doesn't actually have any firsthand experiences with famous works, he chose Hoboken, New Jersey. I guess the DOOP has a few ratty volumes left in its former headquarters...

To keep with the theme of Futurama reminders in academic settings: I'm doing this informal writers' group thing with a handful of my college classmates this summer, where we meet in the student center twice a month and do, like, literary things. During today's meeting, one of my peers brought up porcupines, for some reason. This rodent-infested conversation eventually segued into a discussion of capybaras, and when somebody asked what the hell a capybara was, I was oh-so-tempted to tell them that it is the King of the Rats. And a loyal one, at that.

Recently, my family and I found an arcade really near to where we live. When we went inside, I immediately spotted Space Invaders. After running over to it and  begging my mom for a quarter, I started playing. But before I started playing I said: Alright, it's Saturday night, I've got no date, a two liter bottle of Shasta and my all rock mix tape. Let's rock!
It was especially confusing to my family since it was Tuesday.

Hmm....I'm not sure if this really counts...but what the hell....

A few weeks ago I was with my grandparents watching T.V, a commercial came on for the Tony Awards, it named a couple of famous shows and then I piped up.

Me: Ha! All of those plays are jokes. The best show is Nibbler on the Roof obviously.
Nana: Nibbler on the roof? Don't you mean Fiddler on the Roof?
Me: No, Nibbler. It's a great twist where the fiddler is actually a super-intelligent alien pet from the 30th century owned by a mutant woman.
Nana:..........

Today, I used, "Oh sure, blame it on the wizards!" in a conversation.

The other person picked up on it.

I don't know whether I should be proud of them or saddened by their probable lack of female friends...

Every time I verbalise a half realised thought, and have to finish it on the fly, which invariably ends up sounding something like Fry's "No I'm...doesn't."

Billy West said on the Nerdist podcast that he actually screwed up this line himself, and it came out like that on accident. But since it sounds like something Fry would say, they kept it in. big grin

Pretty obvious "reminder," but it was an unexpected surprise nonetheless. While on vacation in Maui, my husband and I stopped by a tattoo parlor, and I came across this:



I couldn't get the whole poster. There were also framed Futurama comics on the wall. I started snapping pics but felt kinda strange doing so when the owner approached me. We chatted for a bit and I said something like, "Oh, how are you liking the new season?" And he blinked at me, looking rather confused. I guess he didn't know about the Comedy Central run. He muttered something like, "Well, I got married and you know, that fell by the wayside." I said how I've been married for five years, and that my husband was really supportive of my addiction, and then the guy sorta gave me the stinkeye after that.

Here's a grab-bag of Futurama reminders that I've stumbled across in the past few weeks, but have been far too lazy to actually post about for whatever reason:

1. The other day in my dumb-kid, required-of-everyone-to-graduate science class, the professor asked us what it taught us about science that otherwise brilliant men like Thomas Aquinas and Ptolemy could have thought the sun revolved around the earth when that's so clearly wrong. The particular way in which he phrased the question--which, of course, I've since forgotten--made me feel like "Anything is possible in science" was the only answer anyone in his or her right mind could give. I mean, I didn't actually give this answer myself, but so amused was I by the Farnsworth quote that I started to giggle to myself while the rest of my classmates stared, blank-faced, at the professor.

2. I read something in my linguistics textbook the other day about the rudimentary ways in which animals communicate; bee dancing was mentioned, and I thought generally of "The Sting," and particularly (for some odd reason) of the part about Fry's parents communicating by dancing hitting.

3. I saw this at work about a month ago, and have been itching to clamp it ever since:

Bada-climp, bada-clamp!

What a strange thing to write on a box. Not "Fragile" or "Do not bend," but no--clamping. How the heck would you clamp such a big box, anyway?
