Just wondering,has anybody else noticed that although many former US presidents heads have appeared in jars over the years on the show, JFK has never been amongst them?

Could this be something to do with his assassination I wonder?   confused

I doubt it, Abraham Lincon has appeard on the show. I'm sure if the show had continued that they would have gotten around to JFK at some point.

Lincoln's head wound was a smaller hole with the bullet lodged in the brain. Kennedy's wound took a large portion of his head off.

And yet he still took the time to become President and win the hearts of a nation.  smile

Maybe you can't see him because he's always getting head (I know it's an awful joke)

JFK's head is in the Futurama 2005 Calender for the month of February. It shows the Planet Express crew playing beach volleyball with American Presidents' heads! To see, http://aboutleela.ru/calendar/2005/002_big.jpg

JFK's head has just as much likelihood as George Washington's of being on the show. Or Richard Nixon, or any other dead president. I think the general concensus is that they're replicas of the actual presidents, rather than being the genuine article.

Especially Richard Nixon.

Prolly not. They implied from the beginning that Al Gore became president (They hadn't accounted for bush winning) So they would have just ignored Bush on the Show.

Also Futurama is never overtly political like that, and also its a bad idea to badmouth bush on fox.

That's a bit different though, because there probably aren't any people still alive today who were alive when Lincoln was shot.

Also, no one got to watch Lincoln getting his brains blown out in full color on live television.

I'm sure that the theater audience were overwhelmed by the spectacle. They got to watch it live, after all.

However many times, however many ways I read over David A's post, I still can't shake the sense that behind the words, there is a certain sadness that the event was not filmed in Panavision for poor-quality illegal download, and an eventual DVD with commentary from several high-grade weapons experts.

Perhaps I'm searching too deeply.

Perhaps, but those people are all long dead, unlike the many who can still remember JFK's death, so the Lincoln assassination is something less of a touchy subject.

Quite the opposite, actually.  Rather I was poking fun at the morbid fascination that some people seem to have with the JFK assassination.

Kennedy's head was almost demolished when he was killed , so it would be to weird to put his head normaliy (sp).
