I've often wanted a finglonger ... would be nice when I want to reach something far away, like a button on my stereo, the TV or something. Maybe I should get myself one ...

A Luibot why have one of those when you could have one of Farnsworth's invented dream women???  You know from that one episode, a Clone of My Own.(I have that episode on my computer!)

I know this topic isn't exactly all that current....

But

You've got completely the wrong idea about the finglonger!!! (in my very humble opinion).  The whole point is was that it was some really silly invention that didn't exist that the professor asked the machine about ("what if I'd invented the finglonger?!" ).  The reason it's so funny is because it's so silly and he could just easily have just invented it.  But instead he sits there pining.. ("A man can dream though, a man can dream..." )  Obviously at some stage later he did invent the finglonger. 

But it's funny cos it's so silly!  It wouldn't be so funny or silly if he was asking about some thing someone else invented! 

Anyway I signed up to this site just so I could respond to this thread which I randomly found on google.  So there you go.  I bet you've all been waiting for the last five years for someone to respond.

Ooh, old thread. But yeah, I agree with you, aidan.

Y'know, I could really use a finglonger, like when I'm lying in bed and I want to turn the light off, but the switch is over by the door...

I need the finglonger. It'd be powerful useful to me, since I'm usually to lazy to get up, and it'd be a great weapon, since it's safe for you and not the other person.

Indeed. Proof.

Though I don't remember seeing those commercials in years, so some of the younger members around here might not remember them.

Technically, it never existed, it was just a movie on the what if machine.

The whole point of this thread, if I'm not mistaking, is to say what would happen if it did exist. So stop saying it didn't exist..... also... someone could make a homemade fingerlonger with popsicle sticks.... or something to that extent...

Don't we all want a fingerlonger?  But really aren't there a lot of cool inventions on Futurama that we all wish we could have?

The three posts above me are the three gayest posts in PEEL history.  coldangel is only extremely gay due to proximity.  As is mine.
