David A, Popplers could be considered an animal rights episode... sort of. The message that its okay to eat animals as long as they aren't sentient would perhaps seem a little skewed from an environmentalists perspective.

On the other hand, it did win some sort of environmentalist award, so they didn't seem to have a problem with it.

For these reasons and more, I vote for Crimes of the Hot.

You're forgetting a part of that line that makes it even funnier:

Man: I've got a degree in homeopathic medicine from Evergreen State University!
Van: You've got a degree in baloney!

For you see, Groening himself attended Evergreen State University.  big grin

I liked A Big Piece of Garbage the most. From the 6h minutes, the Farnsworth countdown, and Fry missing the button, I couldn't stop myself laughing. Plus, it's a better environmental episode. I do however enjoyed Poppler's line: It's like sex! But I'm having them! My how I can relate to that...

That's really reaching.  Anyway, animal rights and environmentalism are separate issues.

it's good to know that no lessons were learned in the very end.

garbage being some other generation's problem, exotic all meat dinners and a smoggy "robot party week", etc

True, but many environmentalists are animal-righters (hey, I made up a word) too, and since they're the ones giving out these awards they probably just got the issues mixed up.

Oh, so the twits giving out the awards can't tell the difference between the two, and that makes them the same thing?   no no

Anyway, "The Problem With Popplers" didn't really have anything to do with animal-rights either.  The moral of the story seemed to be "Don't eat babies."

I never said they were the same thing, I just pointed out one possibility why "The Problem With Popplers" got an environmental award. If you want the definite answer you have to write the committee who gave the award.

About your profile: thanks, while we're correcting mistakes it's "etc".  wink

yeah, i dont think popplers really belongs on the list, but it was a great ep.

but ABPOG was still great:
Leela: Just fire the damn thing!
Fry: [misses] whoops.

after launching the missile:

Fry: [dramatic heartbeat]
Farnsworth: [one dramatic heartbeat]
Bender: [drums]

I think that the Poppler episode was the funniest, but I agree that it wasn't really environment-based. Definitely animal rights, though...Sorta.  hmpf

Those who choose to alter fate will do so at their own misery.
