Okay, in tonight's episode, Leela disguises herself as a male soldier named "Lee Lemon". Now, who here has heard of a comic-book series called "Legion of Super-Heroes"? This series, which has been running on and off for over 40 years, takes place in the same basic timeframe as Futurama (1000 years from tomorrow). In one of the early episodes, a character calling himself "Legionnaire Lemon" joins the team (back in the 60's, this was a VERY silly series). The character is actually another character in disguise.
I may be way off, but this seems like just the sort of extremely geeky reference that the writers would throw in.
Or am I just reading my own geekiness into things?

PEEL was never unpopular.  It was just unpopulated.  Subtle difference!  laff

Possible extremely obscure reference: my Russian teacher told me today that in Russia you sometimes call stupid or daft people "Dup", which is pronounced DOOP
It would explain Zapp Brannigan   wink
But probably little else...  hmpf

/edit - another reference...no coincidence, is that one of John Lennon's relatives was called Leela (or possibly Leila) Lennon

But then, DOOP on it's own is funny.  wink

And you're probably right about Lee Lemon, if the facts are just that.

That's not a reference, that's a coincidence. Dub in Russian actually means Oak (the tree), and by calling someone an oak you simply imply that their skull is as thick as one.

Oh, and what's with all the asskissing on this board lately? Does it have something to do with the fact that Ubermods now wield Bansticks?

But by the end of the post I had realised it all meant nothing. It's a funny (possibly) coincidence then  tongue
I knew it meant Oak, we came across it in a text book then my teacher said "Oh by the way..."  wink

Or it could simply be that Lee Lemon sounds like Leela Man. Because she wanted to show the stupidity of the backward thinking of Zapp and/or Pres. Nixon.

Or maybe not, carry on.   smile

aside from being the oldest thread, this might also be the biggest increase in replies ever.  It had 0 replies for 3 years and now has 16 including this one in less than 24 hours

I think DOOP might be a reference to the English word "Dupe."  It means both "Duplicate" and "To decieve."

So its a duplicate of the United Nations that doesn't really work... just like the original one! :lol:

I just think it's funny that no one cared enough to reply to Kryten's original post.   evil laugh I guess no one really cares what he thinks.

I'm going to get suspended for making fun of a Mod now, right?

It reminded me of what Sigmund Freud once said. "Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar."

What confuses me is when was this no women in combat rule applied.
I recall in WAA no objection was raised when Leela piloted the ship to fight the Omicronians.

I suspect it was Tricky Dick's head's idea.
Of course Zapp being the chauvinist pig went along with it.
Stupid Zapp.  tongue

Maybe the men only rule was only introduced after the point of that episode - after all, most of the time, we don't know the timeframe that these episodes occur in.
