This is a poll on the topic started on another thread, http://www.peelified.com/cgi-bin/Futurama/11-000404-2/#t79
I thought it had to be a poll, so here it is! I voted for Bender.   smile

Zoidberg by a longshot. Bender can get annoying with all the drinking and smoking and stuff. Kind of weird because I am a strong advocate of laziness, but not drinking or smoking for some reason. So I guess I have mixed reactions on Bender. But Zoidberg kicks ass.

Bender! I like his "In-your-face interface!" Nah, he's just hilarious and kind of reminds me of a couple of my friends. And of myself, except for the whole drinking and smoking thing.

Bender's funnier, but nearing the end of the series he started saying some annoying catchphrases. See "You go, Mutant Girl!" from The Why of Fry.

Yes, there was.  http://www.peelified.com/cgi-bin/Futurama/11-000404-2/#t79
It is just a discussion though, and in that thread they talked about making it into a poll, but no one did it, so I did it.  wink

Zoidberg is funnier by far.  He has the best one liners by far.

im am in 100 minds about this- 50 say zoiberg and 50 say bender- bender is so heartless when hermes is going to jump 'do a flip'
but on the other hand zoidberg is brilliant- when leela tells him most doctors are rich 'when did this happen? your joking right? THATS NOT FUNNY!'
errrr..... zoidberg i suppose- i did write my notes in his character the other day in college- they arent so much notes anymore- just zoidberg lines

Bender always rocks, and will always rock but Dr. Z is an old Jewish lobster and you just can't beat that.

Hmm this is a close one to call, though I think that Dr. Z is probably just is better.

Docta Z is funnier because that's why he's there. His main purpose is for comic relief, while Bender is a more fleshed out (well not really) character.

I agree that Zoidberg is funnier than Bender but I still think Bender is more important to the show than Zoidberg.

I think Zoidberg is funnier because his jokes are one liner's mostly while Bender's are more phsical ie. beating people

Bender is funny but he has more on screen time then Dr. Z, so he has more time to be unfunny or do something stupid. While Dr. Zoidberh just shows up randomly in episodes and spouts a hilarious lines or just cries. 

Both are good in different ways.  Like Arteta said Bender's humor is mainly beating people up or making fun of someone while with Zoidberg he mostly feels bad for himself so you laugh.

I guess I will vote for Dr. Zoidberg though.

I gotta say Bender.

Zoidberg we remember as being funny all the time, cause thats all he's there for. He only really has a couple episodes where he does more than say one-liners all of which are really funny. On the other hand, Bender is on screen most of the time, being one of the main main characters, and still is funny almost all the time.

Dr. Zoidberg by far.

Bender is always a laugh with his drinking and smoking, but Dr Z is hilarios all the time. I laugh myself silly every time that he gets sad and cries about how much his life sucks.

In Conclusion: Sadness/misery = Humor!

Bender is the funniest. Every episode has a genuine "Bender Moment" just something that is guaranteed to make you laugh.

Bender's the gretest!

If we're talking Bender vs. Zoidberg himself, I go with Bender.

If it's Bender vs. The jokes made at Zoidberg's expense, the latter.

Bender is funny because he does and says the things you want to, but have too much of a conscience.

Zoidberg is funny because he is everything you don't want to be, but probably are.

Therefore it depends on what kind of mood I'm in; egocentric or self deprecating.

Usually the latter.
