Ok, so for those of you who might recall the show Roswell (not the beloved Futurama episoide "Roswell That Ends Well", the actual factual TV series) may have heard about a campaign that the fans started after the network (I forget which one it was on) threatened to can it after its first season. Esentially the fans sent bottle after bottle of tabasco sause (the favorite food of the extra-terrestrial main characters aparently) to the network and gained enough attention to get the show back for one more season.

Now, the point:

I was just wonder what, if the futurama comunity were to do something similar,what sort of product (condiment or otherwise) would best represent Futurama to be sent in?

Right now I'm just interested to hear what everybody thinks. Then again, who knows? Maybe a campaign like this might be the extra little boost needed to win over the Fox execs.

Also, has anyone else thought that there should be a seperate section for petitions and hair-brained schemes such as this? Just a thought.  big grin

A separate "Hair-brained schemes" section would be a really good idea I think.

Hmmm, maybe we cud each send a bottle of beer to Fox Execs because (Obviously to do with Bender) we cud get them all drunk and maybe they wud lighten up a bit and be more open to persuasion!

Or we cud try and get cans of Mountain Dew (does it still exist in US? Doesnt in the UK so would hav to find some other green beverage) and make our own "SLURM" labels!!

Beer. Or, more specifically, LoBrau beer. Of course, we have to find somewhere that stocks it...

.. If someone sent me cases upon cases of beer.. I'd drink them.. Tabasco sause isn't something thats readily displacable/consumable, which is why it had such an impact. Plus its not that expensive, so even the elementry school fan could support the cause.. Beer would be a 21 (usa) and up thing.

What we should send is Angry Norwegian brand ANCHOVIES! They're nasty, smell bad but Fry's favorite!



Send the slimey bastards ANCHOVIES!

LOL, anchovies is by far the best idea. No one likes them. Well, not too many people. Anyone here like anchovies? I do, but...I'm weird.

Its so crazy it might just work!

Or! .. send em a can of Anchovies, ONE ANCHOVIE at a time. In a ziplock bag inside an envelope.. Or for the evil ones out there (present company included) put a pin hole in the ziplock bag! .. that my friend, would be hillarious and stinky.

But that was when the show was still on the air, they were just threatening to cancel it. Futura has been cancelled for two years now.

Still, 1000+ cans of anchovies, Manwitch sauce, beer and home-made Slurm are bound to be noticed.

How about money? I mean if we all send them money that's bound to get noticed.

Just hide it in a greeting card, or a brown porn keepin' in bag.

Well if you made the Manwhiches out of the anchovies we might get exploding anchovies without the explosives.

Just throw some cabbage in there.

The only thing that will turn the Fox heads is amazing DVD sells. The truth is, if you want Futurama back, you gotta talk your friends into buying the DVD's. Everything else Fox wont look twice at.

You could get something from KFC that resembles Popplers and then change the container so that it says "Fishy Joes."

I say we brew our own beer, label it as Bender Brau, and send everything else that was said with it. Minus the anthrax and explosives, we could get every one to send in as much as they can anytime that they can.

"Angry Norwegian Anthrax"? I mean the company have to make something else than just anchovies under the "Angry Norwegian" brand.

If I have beer I would never send it to FOX, I would drink it myself. But I would send some Manwhich ingridients. Or a Shirley Hemple.

Don't confuse not caring with not knowing!

I would send in cans of anchovies.

We would call ourselves AFF (Anchovies For Fry).

I know my friend (Known as HoboJobo here) would too.
