Well today while watching the episode "How Hermes requisitioned his groove back" I saw a scene in which Bender has made a candle from Professor Farnsworths ear wax. This remeinded me of the film "Shrek" where Shrek makes a candle out of his own ear wax.

This led me to the question of which animation had the joke first, was it Shrek copying Futurama? or did they both copy another program? It seems like an unlikely coincedence that the same joke was thought of in seperate circumstances.

Lets remember that Shrek took years to make so is less likely to have borrowed from Futurama but the episode did air about a year before the film so it may have been added in. What do you think?

My guess is this is an old joke.  If I were you I'd look through all the Looney Toons Eps a couple of times and you might find it.  Or yet better try Ren & Stimpy, they did a lot of gross humor.  In fact I remember an ep where Stimpy made a statue of Ren out of earwax.  Happy Huntin!

I agree with winna. Seems like a standard body-humor joke. Probably done plenty of times.
