anyone ever noticed in the intro a bit before the ship crashes into the screen, if you pause it at the right second you can read the headline of a paper a guy is reading in one of the tubes in the bottom right, it says "moon pie fight in mars bar" im an aussie im guessing a moon pie is another type of candy bar?

A moon pie is a sort of a big cookie with marshmallow, covered in chocolate.

It was referenced in the Simpsons too.
"Moon pie. What a time to be alive."

I'm sure we have a general "I noticed thread" but I can only seem to find various threads about small things.

I never noticed that headline.  You have a good eye, chay's head.
The newspaper headline is a play on words between two different candy foods:
A Mars Bar is a candy bar and a Moon Pie is basically a marshmallow filled cookie covered in chocolate.

I would just like to usefully add that the British equivalent of a Moon Pie is a Tunnock's tea cake. Biscuit, marshmallow, too thin chocolate crust.
But Tea Cake Fight in Mars Bar doesn't quite work unfortunately. www.tunnock.co.uk/teacake.htm

Bender: That sounds delicious! (Wink)

Also if a third of Americans are obese I would look good over there... I wish my country were fatter.
