I think you're mistaking "blooper" for joke. While it's true Futurama have featured some very clever jokes and quite obscure references to science, one must remember that Futurama is a sitcom first and foremost. Continuity, realism and science are nice elements, but will never
be allowed to stand in the way of a good joke. Now, noone is more inclined to come up with anti-nits/explain mistakes within the context of the show than me, but sometimes a cigar is just a cigar.
So you would expect that genetic engineering never excelled that much/or at all in the 1000 years between 2000 and 3000, right?
So this now describes Genetic Engineering as that it happened and it must have been quite effective to alter the genitalia lol so why does the Proffesor say that Genetic Engineering was scientific mumbo jumbo (didn't excell, happen) while both Amy and Leela say it is true???????
Actually, I agree with futz and dawoodz; genetic engineering only proved useful for cosmetic surgery. By scientific standard it didn't amount to much more than homeopathy (ie. baloney). As a (mad) scientist Farnsworth would deride it.
LOL another scientific blooper I've discovered I must have a nack for this lol
[Zapp]Please, you're giving yourself too much credit.[/Zapp] A scientific mistake would be something like two positive poles attracting or being able to breathe in vacuum. This is merely a difference of opinion between three very different characters.
