I don't know about the rest of you, but TSD episodes are some of my favorite parts of Futurama.  The funniest part being, of course, what they say leading up to you entering the door.  Post more ideas for that here.  Like something that could be said before entering from the announcer's point of view like in the show.  I don't have anything right now, but I'm thinking.

EDIT:

You are entering a place that is odd.
The kind of place where there might be something scary like a house burning in the middle of an ocean.
On that house, something clearly isn't burning.
That house's front door is not burning.
Prepare to enter The Scary Door

This is just off the top of my head, I could probably do better, but it's fun just write down what you think of.

You are walking into a house with no lights,
You asume that you will be getting a cup of sugar from your insane neighbor.
You walk down the hallway and find a room with a light like the way the sun burns.
Prepare to enter The Scary Door.

OK, 1) It's: You're entering the vicinity of an area adjacent to a location.  The kind of place where there might be a monster or some sort of weird mirror.  These are just examples.  It could also be something much better.  Prepare to enter The Scary Door.
2) You're supposed to post your own, not ones from the show.

Fair enough but look at slackjawedmoron's post! I was just saying how much I liked that scary door.
Also it's not bad seeing as I haven't seen the episode in a while.

I loved the "It turns out it's man!" one, once you remove all the padding you realise just how silly those kind of twists are.

You're entering another dimension. Or perhaps, it's your regular dimension but you have amnesia. And while you're trying to regain your memory, I'm enjoying sex with your wife. Prepare to enter...The Scary Door.

"You're entering a place near a location, a location filled with a gray squishy substance. Welcome to the human mind, a location with many roads, which lead to small dirt paths. Some lead to intelligence (a college graduate floats by). Some lead to supidity (a stupid looking person floats by). Still others lead to insanity (a person ripping out his hair floats by. You choose a path. It takes you to... The Scary Door."

That's not so bad, is it?

"The Scary Door" is really funny, but it kind of doesn't seem to fit the show, since there's nothing particularly futuristic about it.  If they put the exact same episodes in, say, The Simpsons, I don't think they'd be particularly out of place.

This is what I just made up:

You're a person in a smelly crowd of unknown people,
waiting for a bus to a place no one has ever seen.
You look to your neighbours and turn away fastly
as you see he's a warewolf or a thing like that.
Suddenly a vehicle stops ahead.
You try to run away, but the crowd pushes you in
The scary door

  Hey, this thread is getting replies!.  That both proves me wrong and makes me happy; as I stated in the other thread, I find this stuff inherently hilarious...


The one from my fanfic:

You are about to enter a realm of which you’ve probably never seen anything much like. Without warning, you’re bound and gagged and put in a shopping cart wearing nothing but a negligee barreling down the steep hill that is the human mind. Perhaps someone important to you dies, or maybe someone dead comes back to life. Maybe both. You’ve reached… The Scary Door.

One I’m making up right now.

You are moving in a direction parallel to nowhere, perpendicular to the unknown, and maybe a little bit Southeast from insanity.    Behind you is something too frightening to imagine.  Let’s say it’s chasing you.  Something eerie darts out in front of you, and you try to turn and run, but then you remember that first thing I mentioned.  Too late… you’re through…  The Scary Door.

Man they're all really good.  I should make another one.

EDIT:
You are entering a universe.
A universe much like your own, except different in every way.
In this weird place, people don't download music illegally or do really annoying things.
This new era of being is almost.... too good.
But you can never go back.
Only forward into a portal of niceness.
Prepare to enter The Scary Door.

You want a worthy adversary? I'll give you a worthy adversary!

"While browsing a metaphrorical milkbar, something bizarre happens. You do not know what, or why it happened, you only know what your mother didn't tell you. Then, suddenly, you're falling, falling through a pit filled with doors, each door more locked then the one after it, though some have larger locks then others, and look better made maybe. Finally, one door opens, and you fall through, but triumph turns to terror as your teeth start attacking you. For you have fallen into... The Scary Door."

EDIT: On second thoughts, I'm not that happy with this... I'll change it if inspiration comes...

Man, you guys are good. "I'm enjoying sex with your wife." big grin Comedy gold.

TSD intros have that David Lynch feel to it, surreal and confusingly disjointed. But funny of course.

You find yourself in a transcendental state.
More likely it's that week old coleslaw you had for lunch.
That's not important now.
Tracing the poorly laid signs of your subconcious mind.
Like some guy looking for the washroom.
You discover the only Men's Room is on the Other Side.

Wow - ive read them, i can't unread them, i pity the next...scary door intro! 
Well those points aside - here's my pathetic attempt.

Your in bed feeling ambiguous. 
You forget what that means
You go to look it up in the dictionary,
but you're already in your pajamas, so don't.
Now you're dreaming,
You enter a portal that looks like a door,
you open it, it's not.
Your're faced with a something perplexing,
a cartoon viewer, or maybe some kind of monster, an ambiguous one.
You turn back only to find you're facing
The Scary Door.

You're hitchhiking down a runway when a stop sign taps you on the shoulder. You try to run, but your knees have turned to elbows. A call for help goes unheard, perhaps you have not paid for a ticket. You turn to face the stop sign but it has become an arrow point to...The Scary Door.


Well, I just made it up on the spot, apologies for the suckage.

You're burning down a church in Norway when a cop taps you on the shoulder. When you look down you realize you're not holding gasoline and a torch but rather cottage cheese and a sausage link. Then you look up at the cop and realize he's your mother. You then quickly faint into a black hole of never ending cases of people dying of agony from watching Pepto Bismol commercials. It is at this moment you know you've entered...THE SCARY DOOR!

You think yours sucked Kazzahdrane? I made this up right now and it licks plumber ass cleavage.

"You get home from work to find all the beer is missing from the fridge....
Yuu scream quite loudly, enough to wake the neighbours, who are dead, and start to eat your brains....you die quite expectantly and float off into, the scary door...."


"You turn on your computer and discover all your bookmarked sites have been erased by an unkown assailant, who happens to be standing right behind you....he grabs your face and starts pulling on it....you try to move but seem to be stuck to the chair, not really actually you're just paralysed from the waist down....you try to scream but no sound comes from your mouth....it appears your mouth has been taken from you....you go to thescarydoor.com and curse your dial up connection as you wait for it to load, and take you away....

Yeah, once I started I couldn't stop....take THAT....!

You're entering a parallel universe. Or maybe a perpendicular dimension. Perhaps a little from column A and a little from column B. Let’s call this new column, "Column C." Oh, and now you're gay. Prepare to flamboyantly enter...The Scary Door.

You are sweaty and going for a nice shower.  You turn on the faucet, but all that comes out is sand.  You try to turn if off, but the knob won't budge.  The bathroom fills up with sand and you would've drowned, had an arm not seamlessly come up through the floor and pulled you down. Down to the downstairs of your house.  You now see a person, the person that saved you.  He duplicates himself so that he is all around you and all of them turn into connecting doors.  You are surrounded and all the doors lead to the same place.  Pick a Scary Door.

Here's one I came up with to promote my upcoming fanfic Delivery to Mobius:

Your Professor boss asks you to make a delivery to a planet.  You find out that your favorite video game character lives on that planet.  You invite all your friends to make the delivery and meet your favorite video game hero.  Only to end up on the heroes' archenemy's territory.  Your robot friend gets pissed off because the villain has evil robot armies with no free will.  Then you and all your friends must fight off the villain's hecnchmen, you must face the villain, your friend wants to give the villain a piece of his mind, an intern you used to date chases the villain's assisant around!  Then a big chase ensues when you reach.............The Scary Door!!!!!

You wake up in your bed in an alternate dimension, or maybe an adjacent dimension like the bathroom window. They could be the opposite ends of the same spectrum, or maybe same ends of the opposite spectrums. All you know is that doors are made of ham and bratwurst in this universe, and they're all called...

Yes, I know I suck, but here it is anyway and remember after you read it you cant unread it *evil laugh*

You enter a door
a door which is a passageway
a passageway that is a door
you walk through only to find you have no legs
you fall, not to the floor, no, to a location
not just a location a new dimension, or something
and that something is a door, infact it's the same door you started with
You have entered the scary door

it's alot hareder to write the other stuff though
