In Bender's Big Score, before Lars and Leela's wedding they are at Elzar's Resteraunt organising the appetisers and in the background there is a sign in Alienese. People are going to take what appears to be some kind of some kind of stew from the kiosk. When translated the alien language sign reads: Human Broth.

Yeah, he said that there "were like ten interesting things in this scene" and the first one he said was the human broth.

Read it? I can't even speak it!


But then I didn't even realise that this was a chatroom, so there you go.

No, seriously; I wouldn't be surprised is some of the long-time members of this site (who now are mostly found in the Off Topic threads) used to be able to read Alien Language #1 on sight but there's not much evidence that anyone here has kept the skill alive. Although Zanfor does use a bit of it in his 42-piece Xannichelliaceae note.

I can read it, but it takes me a while, and if anyone can actually speak alienese, I would like to hear it laff

Alienese is a language on Futurama that occasionally crops up in several episodes such as the first one and Parisites lost. Has that cleared it up?
I reckon Nibbler speaks alienese but no-one knows what it sounds like so they just dismiss it as gobbledeegook.

  • Your post is evidently baised on the (incorrect) assumption that;
  • Anyone interested enough in Futurama to visit this forum doesn't already know "alienese" is a sight gag, and is not a spoken language.
  • T'would seem my post wasn't quite blatant enough.

As your profile says that you're relatively new, and that you're twelve-
TWELVE? When I was twelve, I could hardly spell 'computer', much less use one.
So I'll save the ritual humiliation for another time... wink

There are supposed to be three alien alphabets from the show. The first two have been de-kafoobled translated into their English equivalents, but the third...
The only examples of this third alphabet are supposed to be on Leela's bracelet from "Leela's Homeworld."
Hardly enough for a decryption.
Does anyone know if there have been any subsequent sightings of this alleged third alphabet.

And in the off chance that no one has beaten me to it:

We're a rowdy bunch, but we've had all our shots. wink
Leave your shoes by the door, put a quarter in the slot, light some incense, and c'mon in.

Good Grief! When I was twelve our family went to see this cool newly released movie that everyone was talking about called Star Wars.

As I recall, when I was twelve, Thomas Edison and George Westinghouse were going mano-y-mano over the comparative merits of A.C. versus D.C. electrical power distribution networks. George won out, by the way...
Such a nice young man, he was...

Y'know; about the same time that James Clerk Maxwell was disentangling the wave equation...

Er, or was it Michael Faraday cobbling together his voltaic pile...?

Maybe it was that Musschenbroek fellow with those strange jarsconfused

It all seems to blur together after a while... hmpf

If you believe any of the foregoing, I have this bridge between San Francisco and Marin County you might like to buy... roll eyes

But to the topic at hand:
I know that I can not, and (I believe I may say without fear of being disproven) neither Mr's Edison, Westinghouse, Maxwell, Faraday, nor Herr Musschenbroek could in their wildest dreams speak alienese.
I'll just ooze back out under the door now...

What exactly are Girl Guide cookies?

I always thought that Fururama is portrayed from the view point of a regular thirty-first century person, and as (most of) the viewing audiance can't read alien then neither can most of the humans we see on-screen. Alien adverts (and graffiti) seem to be for the benefit of those few aliens who reside on earth (e.g. Zoidberg, Elzar, Morbo, HGB, etc).

Thus (as I see it) the 'joke' is that most humans who dine there probably consume it unawares because they can't read what it is called.

IDK. I always thought of the alieniese as another inside joke with everyone on the planet except Fry. It seems odd that all the aliens on Earth would speak the same language. To me, alienese seems like English signs in a city like Berlin. German is the predominant language, but if you have signs in an other language, make it in English, a language that many people, even not native speaker, can understand.
