Yes, it's one of the possible elements that can be used.

This was started way back about things strating on fire for no reason.

Zoidbergs 'fixed' slinky in the episode where Bender fallen in love. When Zoidberg tries it it goes down one book step and then falls off and catches on fire

Lets not forget Zoidbergs home burning down, while they were at the bottom of the ocean.

Zoidberg: NOOOOOOOO! My home it burned down [cries] How did this happen?

Herems: That's a very good question.

Bender [picking up a cigar]: So that's were I left my cigar.

Hermes: That just raises further questions!

Does anyone know if the warning kajigger (the red, yellow, blue and white diamond on the barrel of molten boron) is accurate?

It's actually a spoof on the Sara Lee slogan which is nobody doesn't like Sara Lee, so I dobt they didn't think too hard about Boron's melting point

Ancient thread but it's already been freshened so I'll throw in my $.02 as well.
People are overthinking this whole molten boron joke. Everything you needed to know about molten boron was conveyed in the picture. It's just meant to be absurd, and beyond that there's not really much to 'get'. The joke would be essentially the same if it was "Nobody doesn't like lava!"

Personally, I thought it was hilarious.

You embody everything that is your avatar.  I don't recall Scruffy responding to a question about people reading too much into a joke, but that is so what he would have done.

Plus, I like looking at pictures of naked women. Never seen a naked women in Zero G, but I feel safe assuming I'd like that too.

Like Gopher said, it's just absurdist humour. The only reason it was Molten Boron is that those words are inherently funnier than "lava", adhering to Groening's belief in inherently funny words "making" the show (for example, they always say "underpants" instead of "underwear", because it sounds funnier. They're right; say it aloud and see!).

It is a shame The Simpsons writer "John Schwartzwelder" couldn't work on Futurama. He was genius. On topic:

I named my band after Molten Boron.  This chain of posts is kind of amazing, although the quality definitely slides over the course of the decade.  Either way, it's a true 21st century historical document. 

And now nobody can say James Randall didn't post on it!  hahaha!

Also, the whole exploding for no reason thing has really become an integral part of the cartoon universe, especially ATHF, where they do it several times an episode

It's an amusing paradox that some jokes are too simple for stupid people to get.

Thats my favourite advertisement-maybe its the catchy jingle, maybe its Tress's voice, maybe cause of the funny picture and sort of meaning.

Maybe cause its just so random.

I love it!

Then again, I dont really 'get' political jokes in the Simpsons, being a UK person, so I doubt not understanding stuff because of where you are is a new thing. Sort of :S

I agree with that to being a fellow UK resident, like for example in The Simpsons episode where sideshow Bob becomes mayor (Just got upto it in the DVD Boxsets) they constantly make jokes about the 'Democrats' being evil which not living in America I don't understand   tongue

Brain: It appears we are in the presence of the fabled one, but without his Scooty-Puff Jr he cannot escape ha ha ha, huh!

Brain: A quantum-interphase bomb, are you insane in the membrane!?

Fry: You got it poindexter!
