I think the sound is a deliberate reference to The Three Stooges. I don't recall which one, but on one of the audio commentaries they talk about Zoidberg's soundbeing the same as Curlys.

Yeah, the "whoop whoop whoop" is definitely a Curly reference; in fact, the first couple of times Zoidy used it (in TDS), he also makes other trademark Curly noises, like "nyuk-nyuk-nyuk" and "nyah-ah-ah"

Ok serious for a moment:

Never understood this one!

If someone is injured at work, or have acquired a work-related illness, they etitled to worker's compensation, financial support either from an insurance company or the government. The fuy (Fry?) probably had an injury that prohibited him from going outside.

I think it was meant to suggest that Fry had lied about an injury in order to get workman's comp and if he went outside the authorities would realise he wasn't really injured.

When Zoidberg says "Bupkiss" (sp?) in The Sitng and 300 Big Boys....what does it mean....?

Actually I think it means "nothing" but where did it originate....?

heh funny word....bupkiss  big grin

It might be a reference to Xanthor, a wizard from a D&D type thing.
I Googled that by the way, and Xanfor's results were all Futurama related.

The joke I didn't get, and keep not getting, was in TFP, when the other Professor says:  getting the brain out was the easy part; the hard part was getting the brain out...

There's not much to get really...

It's just the professor contradicting what he said earlier, creating a very surreal and, for me, hilarious moment... perhaps indicating that removing his own brain had some unforseen side effects...

Someone (I believe it was canned eggs...) called it a presupposition failure and gave it a long definition... go to page 13 if you care.

I love that line, incidently.   smile

Thanks a lot.  I still don't get it, but er... heh.

The fun thing is I was reading that thread up to about page 10, and those were all the jokes I either didn't care about or got.  Who knew I'd find so detailed an answer to my own question in just two more pages.  smile

Farnsworth Parabox is probably my most favorite of Futuramas, but there is a moment that freaks me out... remember when they grab wire and plunge into the boxes?   In the first universe they pop in, nobody has eyes.  Now, this is supposed to be funny.  For some reason it isn't.  What's the deal, where's the catch? :\

Also, I don't get the giant wobbly heads in one of the universes, they freak me out too!

I think that was the reaction the writers were going for! haha

The "No-eyes" crew are funny because of what Hermes says :

"We didnt see anything...EVER!"


As for the "Nodding-Heads".. well theyre funny because they have jolly exteriors but are really unfriendly.

I feel this is going to be the thread I am going to frequent for a long, long time, being a foreigner and all  smile

So, here's another for your explaining delight!  smile

AoI2:
Bender: Maybe if I wiggle it around...
Fry: Bender, no! You'll make God cry!

Kifchik, that is yet another Futurama masturbation joke.  Bender started to wiggle his new “antenna”, and Fry shouted, “No, you’ll make God cry,” which sounds like one of those many religious (Catholic?) reasons adults tell children not to touch themselves.  It’s right along the lines of “Every time you masturbate, God kills a kitten.”

"Bobble-head dolls" (little dolls with wobbly heads) are a popular collectible.

Here's a commentary joke I don't get. In many commentaries, including The Deep South and AOI II, John DiMaggio makes a "Nyuh-huh" noise. Anyone know what this is a reference to?

Might be a reference to the odd voice he did as the tow-truck driver in Put Your Head on My Shoulder, when Fry and Amy were stuck on Mercury.

Yeah Spiro Agnew was Nixon's vice president, but why was he headless?

Because it's funny.  And because Nixon is a head without a body, so his vice president should be a body without a head.

It's not exactly a joke that i didnt get, just a really stupid one.

In "Problem with Popplers" When they're waiting in the audience for Zapp and the Omicronians to come out, Fry makes a comment and Leela out of place says  "Thats Stupid." It was so weird when i still see it and it seems so pointless and out of place. Watch the episode and you'll see what i mean.

Actually no, I don't see why Leela's line is out of place. Fry say he wish the Omicronians would get just wipe out humanity and get it over with. In other words he don't mind getting killed, he just want it to happen rather today than tomorrow. Seems stupid enough for me.

May have been one of those "edited out of the scene so the ep wasn't an hour long" type jokes that we hear so much about on the commentaries....?

Or you're reading to much into the ep....whatever floats your boat  tongue

I'm not sure if this has been done in this thread before, but in WMIBACIL, the leader of the Decapodians says something about Fry having guess what animal he was thinking of...in the deleted scenes and animatic, I heard no guess.

i think it's the same joke as the one where Edna and Leela where in the restaurant and Edna said that all the beautiful words came from "the blowhole of that hideous alien" meaning Fry.

It's a joke about Leela and Fry beeing foreigners on Decapod10, like Zoidberg is on earth.

It has been done before, and it doesn't matter what his guess was.  It's a joke because it's a weird way of starting a fight to the death, and the idea of having to guess an animal is funny by itself.

Another one I didn't get, in Jurassic Bark when Fry is telling the 2 scientists about Seymour....why were they interested in what Fry told them, he only told them what seemed like random facts about Seymour....?

Was it supposed to be funny for some reason....?

Well, yes, because it seems odd that paleontolgists would find anything interesting about a Dog chasing a bus 1000 years ago.
You'd think that these scientists would be interested in what Seymour ate, how he lived, etc. Such is my understanding.

This was more of a "I don't really think thats very funny" than an "I don't get it" but when the infosphere is counting down and before she says zero she says something like "will the owner of a 49 fire bird, o never mind, 0!"
Thought that was a bit immature and obvious for Futurama.
