In somebody's house I saw an ashtray that looked like an Omicronian ship. It had the same three claw-like legs with the round tray supported above it.

Whenever I search IMDb and come acros the actor Kano Futurama I can't help snicker a bit.

Who in their right mind call themself Kano Futurama?

This reminds me of the Fry/Leela relationship:

What'll you do when you get lonely
And nobody's waiting by your side?
You've been running and hiding much too long.
You know it's just your foolish pride.

Layla, you've got me on my knees.
Layla, I'm begging, darling please.
Layla, darling won't you ease my worried mind.

I tried to give you consolation
When your old man had let you down.
Like a fool, I fell in love with you,
Turned my whole world upside down.

Chorus

Let's make the best of the situation
Before I finally go insane.
Please don't say we'll never find a way
And tell me all my love's in vain.

Chorus

Chorus

Whenever I hear someone tell me "You're _____" I say "No I... Doesn 't!"... From that episode (of Futurama). (forgot) Fry said it.

I have a seasonal job at my local Toys-r-us and the other day i was straightening the board games when i stumbled across the triaminos and when i saw them all i could think of was Bender in his santa hat.

"But i come bearing Triominos!"

As a result i can not look at that game and keep a straight face.

For some reason, that just doesn't strike me as being as funny.

Probably because we're used to Triominos.

Anyway, FOX objected and gave them a list of products, where they were allowed to use. Not in the sense they would be paid, but the producer wouldn't sue them.

Earlier I posted about "Hybernetic Naptosis" and I just saw that episode again and I was wrong.  It's actually "Hybernative Naptosis", a quote from Kif gets Knocked up a Notch.  Which everyone else seems to hate, but I thought it was enjoyable.

Maybe, but I think that it could just be that Triominos are inherently funnier.  I mean, come on.  They're like dominos, but they're triangular.

Those Sony robots are great.  Not only can they walk and even run, they can do a Japanese fan dance.

Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy..anyone read that? For some reason when I was reading that book it reminded me of Futurama. Zaphod Beeblebrox = Zapp and that depressed robot is Bender...I dunno why I just thought of Futurama whenever I had to read that book.

This is a bit lengthy, but it pertains. Wait for it.

Due to some unusual circumstances, my family spent the last year pretty much without television (and a lot of other basics, but that's a whole long, depressing story not germane to this discussion group); but we did have pretty much the entire series on, uh, tape. Yeah, that's it, videotape. No illegal downloads whatsoever.

Anyway, for most of 2003, our main form of entertainment was our nightly ritual of watching several episodes of Futurama. My older son, who will be four in February, therefore spent a very formative year soaking up Futurama the way most of his peers soak up Sesame Street and Saturday morning cartoons.

So basically, Futurama is his main point of cultural reference. If he could type, his reply to this topic would be one word: Everything.

For months, he referred to all soda as "Slurm." He calls baseball "Blernsball" (a favorite toy is a rubber baseball on a tether -- as close to an actual blernsball as you can get). He spent several weeks referring to various parts of his anatomy as his "human horn" and his "lower horn." He calls chicken nuggets "popplers."

And so on. He also picks up on a lot of the more subtle plot and relationship points and relates them back to real life. He's a Futurama-based life form.

I'm not proud of this, mind you -- I'd rather his cultural education be more eclectic. But it's highly entertaining. And on the whole, Futurama being as thought-provoking as it is, I think it's been good for his cognitive development. We've frequently used it as a platform for teaching him science lessons -- for example, Bender's use of his swag items to offset his momentum; how many 3 year olds do you know who understand the concept of inertia?

Way off topic at this point, I know. Maybe I'll start a new one.

Don't feel too bad about it.  My dad pretty much raised me on Monty Python's Flying Circus, and I turned out just fine.

Um, maybe that's a bad example...

Anyway, welcome to PEEL, Hip No Toad.   big grin  Enjoy your stay.

Yes, and the only response you're likely to get from him is "Huh?"

You and I both know what you're referring to, but he doesn't.  Nor should he be expected to.  Leave the poor guy alone.

This wasn't that funny in the test thread, and it's not funny at all here.

We had our final english exame last week and there was a multiple choice question about who invented television.
One of the options was Hubert J. Farnsworth...  smile

That's just quality [AdAM]!!
I can't remember why but for some reason everyone was hating the number 56 at school, so when someone said it everyone cringed, and I just laughed because it reminded me of 'Insane In The Mainframe' when Roberto say "56! 56! Now that's all I can think about".

By the way is the name Farnsworth inspired by the inventor of television, Philo T. Farnsworth?
