When Fry takes out two sandwiches from his pants, everybody rejects eating it even Zoidberg.  Upon listening to the commentary on the DVD, David X. Cohen says he wasn't convinced that Zoidberg would reject food even if they were from Fry's pants. 

Zoidberg eats, rotting food from the dumpster, so why does he rejects Fry's sandwich.  Hey, I would have rejected the sandwiches as well, but I'd never believed Zoidberg would do the same.

He ate the moldy sandwhich in FutureStock. You're right, it just doesn't make sense.

Everyone else is rejecting it, maybe he just wants to be popular.

Perhaps Fry's crotch smells worse than most dumpsters?

Eating out of a dumpster is filthy, but eating out of someone's pants is just... AUUGGGHH!

I sympathize with the good doctor. A compartment? That's just wrong.
I'd eat a sandwich from Dr. Z's pants, though.

Zoidberg is never full. He has, what, like 8 stomachs? He probably just doesnt like crotch food.

Zoidberg admitted to eating Amy's toenails clippings.

"A feast is a feast." his own words.

He also ate raviloli that was stepped on three times.

You can say that the sandwiches were in Fry's pants, but on the outside of Fry's underpants.  They probably were still good for Zoidberg to eat.

Writers probably just overlooked it, concentrating on the main part of the joke, about Fry pulling sandwiches out of his pants and offering them to people.

Observe the episode A Fishful Of Dollars.

Bender choked and gagged with everybody else when they took a bite of Fry's pizza, even though later we find out he has no sense of taste.

Hmmm...

Yes well he said he traded smission the ability to taste! Maybe he had it when tasting the anchovies yet later traded it before the 30% Iron chef episode!

He said he would trade all his senses, including smission for taste, so he never traded anything!

Bender most likely just wanted to fit in. He responded a few micro-seconds later than the rest of the group, after observing how they reacted. Ties in with his need to be accepted in "Obsoletely Faboulous" and "My Three Suns".

Yes. But did the sandwhich come from a dumpster? Because he turned down Fry's sandwhiches because he pulled them out of his pants. Which were touching his crouch I don't blam. Zoidberg. Ewww

They were in plastic wrap, and so Fry's crotch never actually touched the sandwiches themselves.

Actually, going back over the episode, I'm wrong. It just always appeared that way to me.

Especially because Fry allegedly doesn't shower(even though we see it in I, Roomate and 30% Iron Chef).

Perhaps he just pretended to be grossed out to seem popular, but then ate them later when no-one was looking?

How come Leela does it? There's several times where something happens, the crew reacts, and then after a few microseconds Leela reacts. Little Ms. delayed-reaction nearly got shot in the head in BoI and she still didn't react right away.

True but in The Sting, Fry, Leela, & Bender all reacted when the bee got lose in the ship. Heck if Fry didn't reacted Leela would have been dead. But then Fry would of died with a broken heart.  frown

Abot BoI: Probably shock or a moment of disbelief. I mean she run towards them, waving, yelling not to shoot, and what do they do? Shoot at her! In all fairness the guy apologized to her.

Don't confuse not caring with not knowing!
