was there ever anything in futurama that you could tell was supposed to be funny, but you didn't quite get it?  Here you can post anything you didn't get, and someone can answer it.  you can also post any questions about a joke or detail.

I know there were a few but i can only remember one:  in AoI1, the giant bender said to fry when he first lands on earth, "I'm Bender and I need a BIG serial!"  What does that mean?

Yeah.  I meant to say serial/cereal.  It sounded to me like a spoof on a commercial.

Yep, it's an old commercial for Honeycombs. See, there were these kids in a treehouse, and apparently, they were part of a club dedicated to eating Honeycombs... anyway, some character, say, a pirate, would invade the clubhouse, and he'd say, "I'm a BIIIIIG pirate and I need a BIIIIIG cereal!" And the kids would offer him Honeycombs, which is big (yeah yeah yeah)and not small (no no no), and all would be well...

On the topic of seemingly unexplainable jokes, Trey "South Park" Parker once said in an interview that his favourite audience reaction is not "haha, that was really witty" but rather "where the hell did THAT come from?".
It took me a while to get used to that sort of humour, but now I'm glad to see Futurama occasionally subscribes to it as well.

Two things:

I didn't get what Bender said in War is the H Word in the end to make the bomb go off (acustically)???

And when they sing the birthday song for Nibbler, Fry adds "and you smell like one, too". What's funny about that?

Oh Jeez'.

Okay, for the last time, Bender said "Antiquing", which means to go shopping for antiques (something Bender would never do).

And Fry was just singing the last line of a popular juvenile parody of "The Birthday Song":

Happy Birthday to you
You live in the zoo
You look like a monkey
And you smell like one too...

Hilarious, isn't it?

You see, Kryten knows a lot about antiquing, because it's his hobby.  Aint that right, kryten? yeah, every sunday he drives to a bunch of little towns in New Jersey, searching for antique malls.  He calls it a "junk hunt."

The big question: Do they have to pay the copyright holders for that, or is it fair use (because it's a parody, even if it's not an original one)?

Yep, it's parody, so it's protected. That's the way it works, which is why Robert Smigel could do that "Backstreet Boys" parody on last Saturday's SNL without worrying about lawsuits.

The skit in question was horrible.  That scary lady, she's gross.  Nothing she's a part of can ever be anything other than disgusting

Yeah, but after the Scientologists, the two old ladies who wrote "Happy Birthday" have the scariest lawyers in the world (eToys briefly held that position, but scary lawyers tend to stop working for you when you run out of money).

I think you mean Scientologists have the sexiest lawyers in the world.  Or is that the sexiest members in the world?  No wait, its most amusing members

As a dedicated Scientologist/Tom Cruise fan, I just want to make it clear that Scientology was NOT a factor in his seperation with long-time wife Nichole Kidman. Though there were many factors that lead to their untimely breakup, disputes over religion was not one of them.

Thank you.
