So maybe you can waste your time on me:

Insane in the Mainframe
Fry: Let me guess, he thinks he's Lincoln
robot2013?: Well, he's supposed to,
 Problem is, he's got multiple personalities
 All of them Lincoln

I don't know too much about american presidents,
was Lincoln kind of a 'Twoface'?

No, you're reading too much into it.  The joke had to do with the cliché of mental patients who think that they're famous historical personages.  The Lincoln robot thinks he's Lincoln, but that isn't why he's institutionalized.  He's institutionalized because he has multiple personalities.

 
Quote
and that leads to
A Head in the Polls
Was Washington a heavy boozer?
Bender: Same reason you hocked your teeth.
Washington: Ah, Booze money.

No, Washington wasn't known for drinking, but he did have wooden teeth.  The joke here is that he sold his teeth, just like Bender sold his body.  Bender isn't really the sort of guy you'd expect to have something in common with George Washington.

That would be the president questions, i don't
want to explain me the whole presidential losers
section.

But another thing in A Tale of two Santas.
They read out the children x-mas letters on their
way to santa.
You choked him with a chestnut last year, and
he's beginning to smell a lot like x-mas if you
know what i mean!
so this kid had to live a whole year with his dead grandpa in his room, is that right?
i find that offensive,

naa, i'm just kiddin
anyway thanks for somebodies help!

Did you have a question about that, or what?

Speak softly. Drive a Sherman tank.

not really,
no more coffins and dead grandpas,
the only thing that comes to my mind is:
Zoidberg: Bender, you said winkwink out loud.
Bender: No, i didn't (raise middlefinger?)

whats winkwink, it is another language problem,
me and my dictionary,

thats all, i'm not gonna post anything for the next decade.

People sometimes wink, when they are trying to put a message out to someone else who is there, without alerting others.  The joke here is that Bender actually said wink wink rather than doing the action.  Hence him also saying "raise middle finger" rather than doing it.

What he said. I'd been scratching my head trying to think of a way to describe the winking action. It's a subtle motion from one person to another.

I hope this hasn't come up before, but It'd take a looong time to go through all the posts on this thread so here goes:

What's the deal with the bricks falling out of Bender in Space Pilot 3000 and Bending In The Wind? I was never completely certain what that was soposed to represent...

i always thought it was a little joke on internet slang. since you can't wink on the internet or IM, you might type *wink*.

i would say that bender is actually saying the phrase *wink*wink*

To honor him, after he was a guest voice and did a good job. Plus, it's quite funny to put a rap star in a place we think is reserved for the highly honored.
I would say presidents, but then they made those stupid Sacajawhea dollars nobody ever used.

I think the telephone was invented by Alexander Graham Bell and the computer was invented by Konrad Zuse.
Franklin was the guy who invented the lightning conductor.

What the hell?

Alexander Graham Bell invented the telephone.  Charles Babbage invented the computer.  (Well, that one kind of depends on your definition of computer, but it wasn't Franklin.)

Ben Franklin invented bifocals, proved that lightning was electricity, and came up with the idea of daylight savings time; and all of that was just in his spare time.

He was the first Secretary of the Treasury.

a few pages back, there was a question about what the joke is in relation to "the bible is the real good news" in the farnsworth parabox. i was in the book store the other day and i saw a book titled "good news bible." i didn't bother to look what was in it, i assumed it was a version of the bible, but anyway, no one has mentioned that, so maybe the joke was referring to the book.

I thought that "the bible is the real good news" line was just deliberately ironic, as the Professor tells Hermes that his grandma can go to hell about a minute afterwards.  tongue

No-one has any ideas about this then. Probably no-one from the U.S will have heard the audio commentary because it is not out yet. (AHAHAHAHAHAHA) but someone must know who Peter Tosh is and why le Grand Cigar compared to that is so funny to everyone else in the Audio Commentary room.

Sounds like a pot joke to me. (Peter Tosh is a reggae artist. Think Bob Marley.) One of his albums is titled "Legalize It."

Read page 13 of this thread.

Here's a more challenging question: in The 30% Iron Chef, Bender said he personalised everyone's meals, e.g. he baked Amy a pony because she was cute. However, did anyone catch how everyone else's meals were personalised?

All I remember was that Leela had a couple of eye-balls on her plate, and Farnsworth a collection of guts (probably because he stores organs in boxes, or something).

Hermes has a brain (possibly because of his accounting skills), and fry has a piece of one of those big ancient roman pillars. Possibly a reference from him being from 2000.

oh, and something i didn't get. technically not a joke, but...

when i watch episodes with commentaries, i always put on the "english for the hearing impaired" subtitles so i can follow dialogue.

whenever zoidberg does his "woopwoopwoop" sideways scuttling walk, the subtitles come up saying

|IMITATES THREE STOOGES|

does anyone get this reference?

The Three Stooges was an American comedy trio back in the 30's, 40's and 50's. They primarily focused on slapstick, as far as I know. One of the Stooges, Curly, had the "woopwoopwoop" sound as one of his trademarks. In the link Curly is the fat, bald guy.

well, that's a pity. one of my favourte things about zoidberg was his "woopwoopwoop" noise -- i thought it was a completely random noise, which was what made it so funny. is this a deliberate reference? or do you think the subtitling people just used it as a comparative thing (rather than "ZOIDBERG: woopwoopwoop...", which just looks odd)
