Okay, I was discussing this a few months ago with my friend and well... there's something that just kinda strikes us as odd.

In the Devil's Hands, Leela receives Calculon's "ears" so that she can hear Fry's opera


But in I, Roommate and Bend Her, it is heavily implied that the antenna of a robot acts as a phallic representation.


Maybe it's just us but... what up with that?
Do robots hear through their penises and was Leela a manbot for a period?

Maybe Calculon's antennas are just antennas!  big grin

Bender's antenna is just that, an antenna. Calculon's are antenna-shaped ears. There's a noticable difference.

Robots do not have nasty bits like humans.  I'll bet robot sex has something to do with sharing battery electricity or something like that.

Robots don't have reproductive parts; those that love sex are in it entirely for the perversion.

Well, Leela did say (er, sing) that her new robot ears were "effective, though just a bit garish"...  big grin

Yeah. If you had penile ears their garishness (or lack thereof) would be the last of your worries.

On the other hand, you would probably be a big hit at parties.
Especially if all you had to compete with was someone trying to imitate an American accent.

hey but also think about this...

in the episode where the omacronians came to earth to see that episode of Jenny McNeal... bender was filming right...

well bender says, "camera 1" "camera 2" (which are his eyes)... then he says "camera 3" and we hear it but we don't see it...

where is that camera 3 and what is it?!?!  wink

    I would find it a bit garish if reproductive organs of any kind were protruding from someone's head

    I wonder what he was tightening considering he was saying ti look totally unrealistic. Though the answer to that could be as disturbing as the mental image that is trying to pop into my head promised to be...

    Sorry for even thinking about that.

    Back to the first post, I think that some antennas have a specific perpous, Calculon's perhaps able to hear, and alot of Mom's robots to pick up signals from a remote hidden in her... (bra) and that not having a penis, they feel jelous of humans and make penis jestures or jokes from what is their antenna.

    Who knows? maybe it's easily understandable in the future.

    It's pretty simple, really. It's a phallic/status symbol much in the same way owning a gun would be, but like the gun, it's also not an actual penis.

    Deleted scenes are deleted and probably ommitted for a reason. I would not regard them as part of the shows canon.

    Whoever comes up with a good explanation to that wins a prize. I dont know what the prize will be or even if it exists, but you people need motivation.

    Face it, Leela had two robot penis' in her ears.

    I'm sure that sort of thing is acceptable in a 1000 years time.

    Calculon's ears are diagonal. What does that say about him?

    maybe shes a tranny-bot

    In view of the diagonal ears: Again, what about Calculon?

    Irresistable to all the robot sexual orientations (especially bishops) and several of the human ones as well?

    Mommy-bot and daddy-bot pool their blueprints and come up with an optimal blending of the two. They then print out the new large, properly formatted datafile, and send it to Momcorp. Momcorp then build the robot, it being "born" in the factory.

    The mommy-bot and the daddy-bot then go their seperate ways.
