If you know the answer, sure: Then the question isn’t unanswered, is it?

SpaceCase - why do you bother doing that awful Fox/Fux parody if you're going to censor it?

Owing to my caustic anger at ‘that’ network over their [expletives deleted] poor treatment of our favorite program, I flatly refuse to use their name.

Nice speech Spacecase.

Speech? What speech? I talk like that all the time!

I agree: Hilarious. But it was never addressed in the plot, was it? Therefore it’s an ‘unanswered question’.

Keep’em coming.

do DVD commentaries count as "plot" cause they talked about it there.

I don't agree that things have to be spelled out to be the correct answer though. Isn't this show supposed to be for people with brains and junk?

This is probably a really stupid question with an obvious answer that went over my head...

Buuutttt

How did the last name "Fry" get turned into "Farnsworth"?

Do your mother's parents have the same last name as you?  (Okay, maybe they do, but you see what I'm getting at, right?)

All it takes is a girl instead of a boy. Example: My grandfather on my mother's side has three children (two daughters, one son). The son failed to have a son of his own. I will carry on my father's name and thus ends my grandfather's line. However, he will still be the great(30x) grandfather of any offspring that happen to survive in my line.

It stands to reason that a Farnsworth married a Fry (or perhaps a woman/man connected to the Fry line)

Okay, Fry marrys, has a daughter, who marrys a guy with Farnsworth. of course, this can get more complicated, such as having several different names, which is most likely. Probably, if you traced your relatives in 1000 years, you'll see that your last name has changed A LOT.

See,it's all about using your brain to do that thinking thing. *reads this post* oh god, i'm so tired.

Strictly speaking, no. But commentaries can shed light on subjects not addressed in theplot (strictly speaking).

For example:
Never addressed in the plot, but it was in the commentary.

Brain O_o?

But seriously, thanks Futurama_Hil and Allen, I knew it was a fairly obvious answer, just didn't know what.

I might have missed something but...if Fry is his own grandfather then isn't Farnsworth also his great(+1000 years)grandson?

To be Fry's nephew then Farnsworth had to be a descentent of Yancy Jr (unless there's another brother/sister we don't know about).  But unless Yancy is illegitimate he is also Fry's Grandson, therefore making the Professor Fry's great....grandson.

I've looked and not seen this question before and was wondering if there had ever been an answer to this paradox, or whether its just another plot-line which will now never be explored.  Anyone know?

This makes my head go ow. Fry is a paradox when you consider that he's his own grandfather. He always was his own grandfather since the Roswell incident took place before Fry was born. This said, it is still possible for Fry to be Farnsworth uncle, but as everyone now knows, he's also his great ( whatever x) grandfather. That's all there really is when confining it to those terms. The more important aspect of this is that being his own grandfather caused the genetic abnormality that allows him to be immune to the Brains.

Now, here's something that really makes my brain scream in pain. If at anytime, before going back to 1947, Fry was killed, would his line fade away?

Confusing and something to think about.

That, I say that is what you call a paradox.  Bawk!

Ok, that was weird, but no weirder then this.  I was thinking about the whole Hermes/Zoidy thing the other day. 

This may be far fetched BUT, they do seem to mention on a couple of occasions (well at least one) where the Decapodians arrival had bad consequences (all the Anchovies were eaten).

How 'bout this.  Where would MOST Decapodians tend to live?  I'd think, based on seeing their homeworld, that coastal and/or Tropical areas would be their favorite.

So, suppose the native population of Jamacia were all forced off the island due to a population explosion, a population of Decapodians?

I'd suppose that some Jamacian's, now in exile, would hold one hell of a grudge against Decapodian's.

Hence, Hermes hated Zoidy the moment he laid eyes on him.  After that, their relationship supplied the rest of the reasons.

"Is the Professor the father of Moms sons?"

From an interview, it seems like just Igner.
