I noticed this a while back, does anyone else have the answer?

Ok you know on the episode Mars University when Fry said he went to college and it showed a clip of him only going on a carnival ride... right well how come he had a certificate saying he failed??? What happened did he fall out of the carriage LOL, does anybody now why he got this? or anyone else notice this and doesn't no like me lol   confused

Brain: It appears we are in the presence of the fabled one, but without his Scooty-Puff Jr he cannot escape ha ha ha, huh!

Brain: A quantum-interphase bomb, are you insane in the membrane!?

Fry: You got it poindexter!

It didn't say he failed, it said he "dropped out", I thought? I think his line was something like "I'm a certified college drop-out!" (though as leela pointed out, by 31st century standards this makes him a high-school drop-out)

Well that still doesn't make sense then what did he do stop the ride in the middle and walk out??? LOL

It's a joke. The joke being everybody who take one of these rides get a "make-believe"-college certificate. But Fry is too stupid even to qualify for that.

Welcome to PEEL, Dave B and Gopher. Enjoy it here.

Thanks teral, been enjoying it so far.
The funniest part of that gag though the episode was that it was Fry's ambition, not to graduate, but just to enroll so he could drop out.
Leela: "You'll drop out in a week."
Fry: "Thanks for believing in me!"
(or something essentially like that)

Yer? You'd probably fail a urin test!

I always thought they were like kidnappers or something based on the tone of the carnys voice... I'm probably crazy.

yes, its like he failed from the beginning but even continued throughout his semesters, which makes him a certified college-dropout.
even though college is now (future) not worth more than highschool was back in the days (05)
also the ride broke down
and it is no joke, remember
he still beats that monkey if u ask me.. but you didn't, so forget about it

You can pass some classes and still not complete a year of college...what matters is how many "hours" you earn in what subjects.

So Fry didn't have to not-complete the physics ride, er, course.  He could have finished it and passed (though the carnival barker didn't say the ride made you PASS physics, just LEARN physics) and not taken enough other classes to earn the hours to graduate.

Even if it's just a joke.  tongue
