Or, "Futurama Quotes You Use on a Regular Basis"

We all know that prolonged exposure to radiation makes you thirsty. It's also true that prolonged exposure to pop culture has an effect on your everyday vocabulary. Why else would "D'oh!" be in the dictionary?

It's definitely true in my case. Needless to say, I didn't used to begin so many of my sentences with "also". Also, I tend to phrase a lot of my sentences as a question, why not? And of course, one of my favorite fake curse words is "crapspackle". But then, how could it not be? It's sublime.

So what about you? Has Futurama affected the way you talk?

No, I don't think so. Though I may be saying "whaaaaaat?" in professor-esque way. smile

The professor more or less says, E Whaaa?

I always seem to spew/mix random quotes in conversations and Futurama quotes are no different...they have been added to the mix.

Cmon, you mean you don't find yourself saying "aks" during daily conversation? wink

I don't know about improved vocabulary but I incorporate quotes on probably a daily basis.

I have come to the conclusion that it's indeed so. I had that same discussion a while ago.

futurefreak, let me aks you this. How many times have you actually aksed someone about aksing?

Yeah, thought so. wink

I insert quotes and stuff into daily life, but I usually have to follow it with, "it's from Futurama" because no one I know really knows the show.

God, the only reason I'm remotely literate is because I watch Futurama. If not for this show, I'd skulk around spouting monosyllabic grunts and furrowing my brow.

Also: I've been known to say "Bullpies!" on occasion (in a Farnsworth-esque voice).

"Baldercrap" is another good one. big grin

"Your music is bad, and you should feel bad" has proven to be a wonderfully useful phrase within the last few years. I often find myself yelling it at the radio.

That just ruins it you know. Also, sounds like you need better friends big grin

Whenever I play Taboo I do the game using Futurama clues. Like if the clue were "Mexico" I'd say "Bender was born here". You need thr right group of people to do that though.

I was making really ridiculous shit about Mr. Belvedere at work for the last month....

Like "have you ever seen Mr. Belveder sucking off a cow's dick with anus?" and all of my co-workers were like "What the fuck winna?  Where do you come up with this shit?"  Then one of my co-workers recently watched all of Futurama over a few weeks time and came in one day and was like "OH MY GOSH winna, NOW I KNOW WHERE YOU GET ALL THIS MR. BELVEDERE!!!!"

As long as he doesn't come down with it.

Oh my, yes.
I say that a lot.

I can't think of any other Futurama mannerisms I've taken on, since I often just quote things when something relevant happens, without much thought to the fact that I'm quoting anything in particular.

My friend, her boyfriend and I were always saying "nine, ten, a big fat hen; the name ____" for a while. I guess I'm one of those lucky cool people who has real life friends with good taste in telly. cool

That's always nice. I have a few "real life" friends who love Futurama, but not many. Surprisingly, my mom LOVES it. (Mostly because I brought my collection to her house and made her watch it.) She can never remember any quotes to save her life, but she always laughs when someone else quotes it.

Actually, I take that back. Once she said, "What smells like porpoise hork?" And I nearly died laughing.

I've frequently used such phrases as "Your music is bad, and you should feel bad", "Eh-whaaaa?" and "Bullpies!". Once in a while I throw out "Oh lord" just like Leela would. Amy's "pukatronic" gets tossed about when I think about it. I think Futurama definitely has had an impact on my vocabulary.

I say "Awwwww, yeahhh" a la URL so often I'm known for it.

I also use the "Your [blank] is bad, and you should feel bad!" somewhat often.

I do this too. Your [[insert thing]] is bad and you should feel bad is another of my stock phrases now.

As with so many other nerd traits, nice to see I'm not alone in it.

Oh my, yes.
I say that a lot.

My use of "Awww, yeah. [Real slow.]" is so well known that my friend's girlfriend has forbidden my friend to use the phrase "Awwww, yeah" during sex or seduction because she thinks of having sex with me and it throws her off. XD

Out of curiosity (and you don't have to answer if you don't want to), have you ever used this expression in bed before, and if not, would you ever consider doing it in the future.... Because I think that would be hilariously awesome. frown
