Futurinoes?

You know what, that question has never come up, the closest we have to anything even remotely related is "PEELer"

I thought more people knew about the term 'Nerdlinger'.  It even appears on the DVD box setsAlso.

the creators can't name their fans. that's blasphemy!

i call myself a diahard futurama fan. if i were to create a name for what to call the group, id say 'Earthicans'. it's a cool yet geeky name for a cool and geeky show.

I like the mongooses no one would know who we were. It could be like a geeky secret society. We should think up a handshake and secret code word right now.

Speaking of secret societies, perhaps we should call ourselves the Legion of Mad Fellows?

Futurinoes?

Fry's book about the future that is destined to save the world (but instead makes Zoidberg the president) from 'New Year's Rockin' Evil', Futruama Comics #7 is called 'Futurino'.

Just putting it into perspective!

Might lead to confusion about said horse's name for the stupider leaguie-weegies.

That's why we should use the same name (Hot Beings) for our quote-unquote horse.

We should put this to a vote and spread the word to all Futurama fans and make it official. What are everyone's favorite suggestions?

Personally, I like "Legion of Mad Fellows." However, if we were the "League of Robots," we could be official Leaguie-Weegies.

The ones on my copy of Bender's Big Score do. When Bublegum Tate says

"Looks pretty damn solvable to me, Farnsy. Sweet Clyde, use variation of parameters and expand the Wronskain."

the subtitles say "rhine skin" instead of "Wronskain".

I did always wonder about that... it didn't sound like rhine skin...

You'd think they'd have the scripts in front of them...

I'm just anal enough to point out that it's "Wronskian."

Yeah, well dipthongs never were my thing.

Still, I suppose you're technically correct, which as we all know is the best kind of correct, so kudos to you SpaceCase.

I am curious to know why "hot beings" is somehow funnier.

So then, we identify ourselves by saying, "We're here to repair the horse", and if asked, the horse's name is 'Hot Beans'.

Well, it's unexpected...

I see it as sensible, because in order to infiltrate our circle one would have familiarise oneself with futurama and by that time they would be one of us.

But we still have no name for all those people out there who love futurama but are not yet (or may never be) PEELers. Think of the uninitiated.

The best name for us fans is something that only we will get, and will make everybody else look at us like we have a brain slug on our head. How about "Fingerlicans?" Anyone who doesn't get that reference needs to leave... now.

My argument for 'nerdlinger' is that since the fans never made a term for themselves, David X. Cohen swooped in and created the term.  Now, no one have argued ever since.  Well, until now.

So my point is; you should have complained when it was time, jerks.  Now live with it.
