Here's a joke that many people probably didn't fully understand: Near the end of "The Cryonic Woman," Fry finds himself outside of Loew's Qaddafi's Mann's Grauman's Chinese Theater.  This is a real place, an old-fashioned movie palace built by a guy called Grauman, which was originally known as Grauman's Chinese.  But in the 1970s it was bought by a cinema chain owned by a guy called Mann, and he changed the name to Mann's Chinese.  Some people protested this, saying it was like changing Carnegie Hall to Mann Hall.  The place has since been bought by someone else.  Assumedly it will in the future be bought by someone in the Qaddafi/Gaddafi family, and then by Loew's (a real-life cinema chain).

I was Watching I Second that Emotion yesterday and I didn't get why the milk is called 'Third, Third + Third.'
   Anyone have any ideas?

As a humorous take on a futuristic version of 'half and half'?

Closest thing handy? Sometimes the most obvious reason is the right one.

What with the advanments in technology you think Leela could have found something better than a phone to hit Bender with, also I thought videophones were the communication norm of the future.

Cohen noted in one of the commentaries that they never used the same kind of telecommunication device in subsequent episodes.

And listen to the fainting Martian moderator, he's right. Leela needed to make Bender shut up, and quickly. The telephone was simply the closest thing handy.

I'm not sure if this has been said, but i didn't understand why president truman in Roswell That Ends Well comes out of the plane in a crate marked canned eggs? Is there some meaning to this, or were they just being weird?

I really actually liked that joke. I always thought that it referred to Bender being an awful cook. Or maybe he just can't cook with turkey. Or maybe "fish a la king" is supposed to sound funny. You know something, I just realized that I don't understand that joke. It's still funny though.

Tenure is when a teacher or professor or someone has worked there forever, and the people feel obligated to let them work there for however long they want to, I think that's kind of it

Farnsworth said he would like to meet Moose, the mutant, while stroking a moose antler. Sugests Farnsworth collects antlers, and the meeting would have a very unfortunate outcome for Moose.

Personally I thought it was funnier that a guy looking like a moose was named Moose, and it's a reference to the comic "Archie something".

Moose is a character in the various Archie comics, and he appeared in "Sideshow Bob Roberts" on  The Simpsons as the guy who says 'Stay out of Riverdale' (the town where Archie takes place):

In the commentary for 'I Dated A Robot', someone points out a dirty joke as Fry leaves the shop after getting his hands replaced. I don't get it. Is it the sign? What is it that's funny? Someone tell me!!!

"These new hands are great. I'm gonna break them in tonight."

"Breaking in new hands" is the dirty joke, just ask Wanker.

Mabey someone mentioned this already but there's too many posts to go through here.

In the episode A pharo to remember when bender fry and leela are under benders statue.  They are drinking somthing then fry spits it out and says "what proof is this? some big number?" what the hell is he talking about?

Proof is a measurement of alcohol-content in a drink. It's twice that of alcohol-percentage (volume), ie. 200-proof alcohol consist of 100% alcohol.

So Fry was simply asking how strong the drink was.

In 300 Big Boys, I understand the joke where Scruffy says "Shank or be Shanked", but why does Amy say "of course". Is this a joke, or is she just agreeing?

I thought the eggs hit the edge of the bowl, the insides fell into the bowl, and the shells bounced away.

It seems like she's implying that she knows because she's been there before.  Or maybe not.  It would be funny to think that someone that rich would ever spend a lot of time in a 'shanking' prison, but I suppose you never know.

I took it as the Professor wasn't really paying attention to what Fry was saying. You know, how sometimes when you're a teen, your parents will only half-pretend to care about who you hang out with?  The Professor wasn't paying attention, and thought Moose was a friend rather than an enemy.

A lot of the "U.S. only" jokes go over my head.
Like I didn't know who Al Sharpton (still not sure).
And some of the location jokes I didn't get either, like the Atlanta episode.  hmpf
