Bending Unit

We all know the running joke where Bender states that he's 40% whatever (even in the non-canon "Naturama" episode, elephant-seal Bender said that he was "40% ass", combining two of his favourite topics). The total of all the claims are far more than 100%, of course.  If the writing staff ever needed to explain this, I could easily see something like the following dialogue:

Professor:  I have here a large box of lug nuts for Chapek 9.  We need to divide it into 20 smaller evenly-sized packages for delivery.

(Professor scoops out a small portion of the lug nuts, about 5% of the total, making a small pile of them on the conference table.)

Professor: Bender, you're a robot.  What percentage of the lug nuts have I scooped out?

Bender: That's easy for my superior robot intellect!  Forty percent.

(The Professer and Hermes look at each other.  Hermes adds another couple of scoops of lug nuts to the pile.)

Hermes: Okaaaaay.... and how about now, Bender?

Bender: That's a lot more succulent lug nuts!  It all the way up to forty percent now!

(The Professor upends the original box of lug nuts over the pile on the conference table, so entire supply is now in the pile.)

Professor: And now?

Bender: Mmmmm...Lug nuts...I'm looking at forty percent lug nut goodness.

Sounds good but I would only like to see 40% of the scene you described.

He has said 60% and 30% once each too...

Bender: Mmmmm...Lug nuts... I reckon I'm looking at somewhere exactly in the middle of somewhere in between 39% and 41%  -- ish

Professor(exasperated): How  can you say everything is always 40% ?

Bender: Cause if I say something's 40%, I can steal 60%, return 40% and claim it's 100%.

Hermes: Are you sure you're a bending unit and not a banking unit ?

Bender: About 40% sure.

I'd like to see another Zoidberg dance, maybe like the anger dance, or the happy dance!

Oh wait, I already know his happy dance.......

I'd rather not see that joke become stale. 7A already overdid it slightly, and I'd hate to see it done worse.
