Last night a guy on the radio played a game, he played the theme songs of Futurama and The Simpsons and wanted to know the names of the shows He said that both songs were written by Danny Elfman.
I called and proved him wrong. The Futurama Theme song is from Christopher Tyng and not Danny Elfman.
Sadly I didn't win, another jerk was faster.

Edit: ... but I did win this TOTPD right now, yeah go me!

Yeah, the other day in math class, my teacher, a big Simpsons fan, was talking about the possiblilty of life on other planets. He said that if there were any within about 80 lightyears, they would have picked up all of our tv and radio mumbo jumbo. He then followed that up with: "Like that Hallowe'en episode on the Simpsons, where Homer knocked that show off the air and Kang and Kodos began destroying the Earth because they didn't see it." laff I almost corrected him, and my Futurama illiterate classmates didn't know which one he was talking about.

In health class the other day, we were doing a drug unit you know, "Don't drink or do drugs, yadda yadda yadda" and my teacher was asking if we knew which was more dangerous, driving drunk, or high. I was immediatly reminded of "The Problem with Popplers", where Lrrr eats the hippy. I said "When you're drunk, you have a slight sense of realit, how I know, I do not, but whne you're high, it's like "Woah...My hands.. they're HUGE! They can tuch anything but themselves" I would have said "oh, wait" , but everyone was laughing, and they were making me laugh. Of course, most of my school doesn't know about Futurama, curse them all!

Sugar Pie Honey bunch, Somebody to Love (Love that song), & I think this is called 1 is the lonelyist number. Those are all songs that remind me of Fry and Leela, together or not.

I'm listening to "Someday We'll Be Together" by The Supremes, and it's kinda reminding me of Fry and Leela. Of course, I am on this board right now so that probably has a lot to do with it.

Right. That's the ticket.

Earlier today i was standing around topless looking for my bra, and the whole time the only thing i could think of was that quote from Mother's Day "Come on everyone, help mom find her bra"

So not only was i standing around topless looking for a bra, i was giggling while standing around topless looking for a bra.

I was reading a MAD magazine at the airport, and there was an article with George Steinbrenner  holding the cryogenically frozen head (in a glass box) of Ted Williams. So yeah, naturally I thought of Futurama.

A boy at school (Andrew Baker, a.k.a Chubbs) reminds me of Futurama, because he is the one who introduced me to it.
 'Woop woop woop woop' he would say, dancing around the classroom and making claw-clacking motions with his fingers.
And I would stand there, pondering this strange and unfamiliar scene of madness; 'What are you doing??'
'I'm Dr Zoidberg! You know, from Futurama'
Ah, yes. Futurama. I had only ever seen 3 episodes at this time, none of which had made much of an impression on me. And so he began to tell me all about the characters and of his favourite quotes. I was intrigued, and every day I would ask him more about Futurama. This inspired me to go on and research Futurama on the Internet, and I soon discovered that with just 16 of my pounds, the first series of Futurama could be my own. And so I ordered it from Amazon.co.uk and 2 days later it was delivered to my door.
I was hooked. I loved it. And now my life has been significantly improved by the joyous and most fantastic Futurama, and I owe it all to noble and merry Chubbs. God bless him.

Today in my Spanish class a couple people were saying "She looks like a fembot". I'm not sure exactly what they were talking about, but Amazon Women In The Mood came to mind.

In my history class, we have to write skits about a period in the Roman empire. My friend made picketing signs for hers, it was  about..er..something or other. I was holding it up when we were practicing,and all I could think of saying was " What do we want? FRY'S DOG!When do we want it? FRY'S DOG!" apparently I did it, because she was looking at me funny. Also, a friend of mine reminds me of Randy, because we suspect he's gay..and another idiot in my class reminds me of "Lady Boy" from PYHOMS, only, he's not a cross dresser, but we still call him Lady Boy.

You do realize that from now on, whenever I watch "Mother's Day" it's going to make me think of you topless and giggling, right?

My friend moved in October and I was taking her around the neighborhood to say, "goodbye" to everything. I asked her who bought her house and to bring out the fact that only one person was moving in to her huge old house she said "He's a single, male lawyer." I cracked up because I was reminded so much of When Aliens Attack.

My bathroom is the same color as the PlanEx ship. So whenever I'm taking a dump or a shower, I'm forced to be reminded of Futurama.   laff

i use futurama quotes very often my fav at the moment is BAM, when i get the upper hand on a conversation (argument).
Another would have to be 'Im back Baby' (bender).
All my friends and i constally when we walk back from the pub is doing the bender strut when bender was a pimp in the court house.

another is because my broter is a chef the spise wesle get mentioned often. i wish i could by one.

When playing the video game XIII, when I shoot people, fun little otomatopoeia appear. One of them is "Bam!"

Guess what that reminds me of?

The mysterious figures that appear in the background of several panels in Alan Moore's Top 10 remind me of Futurama for some reason.



A scary looking Nibbler and another view of the blue skinned woman from the front, showing one huge eye in the middle of her forehead, are also featured.

General life reminds me of Futurama- there's a quote from it (or The Simpsons) for every situation.

Whenever I am asked a question I am always tempted to answer with 'Oh my yes,' so considering I'm in school that's most of the time....
Also my mate who is a complete Futurama maniac and is amazing at everything from their voices to drawing them reminds me of Futurama constantly!!

At a meeting at work we were discussing changes we made to a client's website, and someone asked how they felt about the graphics we proposed to use as placeholders, and my boss said "They're not fans." In almost the same way Farnsworth says it to Leela in FOABP.

Now that I think about it, one of my English teachers actually asked us what the definition of irony was, so of course I gave him, "The use of words expressing something other than their literal intention. Now that-is-irony!"

Whenever I have Oreo's I always think back to Fry in BBOIC (i think it is?) with that hilarious contraption that puts the Oreo cookies and cream together only to have Fry lick out the cream :P and toss the cookie to the side, then Bender's antenae spray, ha ha....priceless!!
