Fry is now 1024 years old, more than a tad over the limit, so surely him and all of the other deforstie should be taken away. Also Bender (his head) is 1004 years old, so why hasn't he been taken (that is assuming that the sunset squad applies to robots. The professor escaped from the near death star so why haven't they chased him up on this??
There is also the heads in jars, assuming then that celebrities can live forever as a head in a jar (except silvester stalone) it still doesn't explain why the sunset squad does such a lousy job!!
What? You want logic? Common sense? Consistancy, maybe? Feh! You wish.
Futurama writers have shown time and again they're willing to tolerate inconsistancies for the sake of a good gag. It's science-fiction humor!
They won't let one get in the way of the other, and humor sells better.
