There's a Futurama cartoon on the back page of this month's Mother Jones Magazine. It features four clips from 31st-Century newspapers.

Clip 1:
Headline: "City attempts to control condor population"
Photo: Fry and Bender get attacked by condors, a la Hitchcock's "The Birds".

Clip 2:
"Universal health care not available in distant quadrant"
A food-poisoning clinic. Horrible Gelatinous Blob, having trouble digesting Fry, is refused admission by Dr. Zoidberg.

Clip 3:
"Nixon Re-elected"
Nixon's inauguration is protested by Leela, Bender, Hermes, and the Professor. They hold picket signs.
Leela: The head's the crook part
Bender: Expletive Deleted
Prof: Impeach Trickly Dickly--- Quickly!
Hermes: Would you buy a used jar from this man?

Clip 4:
"Nader XXXVIII declares Hovmoscoot unsafe at any speed."
Fry, Leela and Bender have crashed into a hovering fruit stand. Amy is seen holding a sign that says "Boycott Hover-grapes"

It's a political magazine, sort of the left-wing version of National Review.

What's with the condors being overpopulated vermin? I thought Owls were supposed to be the major pests of the 31st century. What, are we to believe that there are TWO annoying overpopulated birds in the future? Worst Mother Jones/Futurama back page thingy ever.

Because that link above didn't work good and was super slow.  I downloaded the two pics and uploaded them to a super fast server.  This pic here is from the 2MB file, I re-sized it so it looks better and is smaller for people on a modem.

      
:click to enlarge:
or you can download the huge 2MB file here here.  That link also has some other futurama mags, such as the mad magazines.  Have fun.
