I had a coworker whose last name was Bender.  He shared the same first name with another coworker, so to avoid confusion I had to call him Bender.  I got great amusement out of it.

It was futurama everywhere i turned today...i work in print, and i had to put an order in for a woman named 'jo mcneil'.. so all i could think of was..of course..
"single female lawyer.. having lots of sex!" so i took the liberty of telling the artist who was setting her cards up the whole story about single female lawyer...and she laughed..
she thinks i'm crazy....

This is going to sound pathetic but what the heck!  smile  After watching volume 4 on the "How to Draw Bender" section, it said that his body was similar in shape to a slurpee cup.  Later on that day day I was out driving around and drove by a 7-11 where there was a big sign with a picture of a slurpee on it and I thought of Bender.  What can I say, I've got an incurable disease called "Futurama on the brain syndrome" where any little thing will remind me of Futurama.

Today I had to parallel park (the first time I've ever had to do so since my driver's test  roll eyes ) and I thought of Amy parallel parking her hover car.  I didn't hit the other parked cars though.

I also drove past The House of Bender.  I must have driven past it lots of times before, but I never noticed it before it was mentioned in this thread.

First off, go read my latest post in the optimistic thread in the Offtopic forum(bottom of page 3). I was trying to think of the words for what exactly I was doing, but Dr. Zoidberg reminded me.

Ya know, I was just thinking of that too. I'm convinced that someday in the future, Car companies are going to start making cars complete with wheels that can move the car side-to-side.

Just think of the possibilities...

My friend's gardener is named Roberto, that was fun at the time.

And for some reason (don't make me go in depth about this) toothpaste reminds me of light speed briefs.

Or they could just do this.

I don't really see the need, though.  How often do you have to parallel park?  I've been driving for years and that was the first time I've done so since I got my license.  Besides, it not like parallel parking is very hard anyway.

If you get so much practice you must be good at it by now.  Despite my lack of practice, I didn't have any problems.

Okay, I know the thread's old and I'm new. For the guitar nerdlingers, I've got a Tele with a device that raises the pitch of the b-string when you pull down on the neck (which pulls UP on the strap button) via a series of levers and springs. It's called a b-bender, so, of course, I have a 6" sticker of Bender on the guitar, front and center. The other thing that always gets me is when one of my dogs is chewing on his feet: I usually imitate the sound Fry makes when he's trying to chew off his arm to get to the Slurm in the drain -- "ine ine ine ine ine."

Today I was reading one of my Zits collections (for those of you who have not heard of it - it's a comic strip).  One of the daylies opened up with Jeremy (main character, male, age 15) celebrating.  One of the words he used was "Arooo", so, of course, I read that part in my best Nixon voice.  It wasn't until the next frame that I learned why he was celebrating: a new Futurama was on!  I didn't even think that "Arooo" was an intentional reference to Billy West's theory that Nixon is a werewolf, until the second frame.  Of course, it wouldn't have been complete without the final reference, where Jeremy continues to celebrate by saying "Da boom!" 

His parents lament that they know of countries that celebrate their independance with less fanfare (and noise).  Were delays in seeing new episodes on FOX really so bad that fans actually celebrated that much when a new episode came on?

In a quasi-Futurama reference:- this Futurama message board has ruined my brain. I was walking by my kitchen bench, when I caught the words 'You SJM' on a piece of cardboard. Momentarily startled, I inspected the offending pulp closer, and realised that it said 'Red SIM.' Dammit, Brendan, your name isn't SJM! Gaaaah!

Okay, this reference is a little esoteric and specific, but it reminds me of Futurama all the time:

In Spanish Fry, I think, they do some fly-by advertisements and one of them says "Drink Shiz." One of my favorite books is "Wicked: The Life And Times Of The Wicked Witch Of The West." In that book, the wicked witch, Elphaba, goes to a wizarding school (better than Harry Potter) called Shiz. I think Futurama ripped them off! Spanish Fry is, I think, 2003 and "Wicked" is 1996!

 Your terribly incorrect spelling of ISTANBUL and CONSTANTINOPLE aside, I never noticed that lyric in the song b4. I just listened to it recently too...

I was watching TV today and noticed a Colgate Total toothpaste commercial that I've never seen before.  The guy is brushing his teeth and shouts out BAM!  so loud it wakes his wife.  Then he says (or maybe it was the writing underneath the product) said "Kick it up a Notch".  I couldn't stop laughing!  I just kept thinking of Elzar.

The "guy" in that commercial is Emeril Lagasse.  You know, the famous TV chef of whom Elzar is a parody?

There's t-shirts I keep seeing with 'Bam' printed on them. Now the surf shop they're from reminds me of Futurama, as well as the shirts themselves. And they in turn remind me of a friend of mine- because one of my other friends mentioned that she should buy it for our other futurama loving friend.
Mmm, cyclic.

Really? I knew Elzar was a parody of Emeril Lagasse, but I've never seen his cooking show or anything so I had really no idea what he looks like.  Well, how about that, learn something new everyday! Thanks!   smile

There was a scene on "Father of the Pride" when Seigfried and Roy were being interviewed by Matt Laurer, when suddenly S&R were enveloped in a puff of magic smoke.  When it cleared, they were standing up.  At that moment, Fry's voice echoed through my mind, saying only "That seemed unecessary."

Everytime I see or hear about the new season of "The Simpsons", the episodes themselves or read about them in the news, regarding hot plot lines, special guest stars ("Yes!  We've got His Holiness Pope John-Paul II in the next Treehouse of Horror!" ), about rumours of the inevitable Oscar-winning movie, how the show will go on for another 100 seasons (pay disputes and inevitable death of the cast notwithstanding)... I'm still reminded of "Futurama" and how successful it could have been had F*X not cut it down in its prime.  Not that I'm bitter or anything...

Well, that and "The Hustle" by Van McCoy.

I see Futurama every day...in the face of every smiling child, when I open the freezer and find something with orange hair on it, when I constantly reference Futurama and piss off my girlfriend.  (She does the same thing with TNG, so I say we're even.)

And of course, whenever I hear "Walkin' on Sunshine" by Katrina and the Waves.  It sucks, but I just have to listen to it...

N-o-r, "Walkin' on Sunshine" doesn't suck!  It sucks noodles.  For someone intimate enough with the show to reference a seasong four deleted scene, you should be able to reference something in season four NOT in a deleted scene.  I'm very disappointed in you.  And to think, five minutes ago, I saw something in you.  For shame ...

Anywho, kind of an odd thing to remind me of Futurama, but the cable guy was over yeterday, to finally install cable in my apartment.  Now, mind you, in my room, I have the Futurama SP3K poster, a Futurama lunchbox, a few die-cast figurines, a Slurm can, clickers, playing cards, and all of my desktop wallpapers are Futurama - related (he was installing cable internet, and was configuring it on my computer, and these wallpapers are set to change every 15 minutes).  Then, he saw my Simpsons garbage can (the only piece of Simpsons merchandise clearly visible in my room), and asked if I was a big Simpsons fan.  Sure ... something like that.
