Yeah, they're parodying the way rappers talk. Just with added spice of using hillbilly names (no offense to anyone named Festus).

I'm probably the only one that noticed this but Mixmaster Festus, if that is his real name, had no mixer between his two turntables and thus, the way he scratched his records, whilst amusing, was completely wrong.

Although I'm sure Teral can make up some kind of "It's the future" excuse for that one.  :p

I could, if I cared enough about rap music. As it is pre-recorded MP3 should suffice.

Every time I hear the words scratch and record, I always see John Cleese for me saying "I will not buy this record, it is scratched."

Perhaps it's intended as a parody of hick rap-rockers like Kid Rock and Uncle Kracker.

I haven't gone through the whole topic, but someone explain to me the meaning of the "Bunk! Bunk I say!" line in Spanish Fry.

I'm not sure what there is to explain, except perhaps for the word bunk. So, here it is, courtesy of Dictionary.com:

bunk n.
   Empty talk; nonsense.

Does that help? If not, what exactly is your problem with the line?

In A Big Piece of Garbage Farnsworth says he wants everyone to be alive for the Academy of Inventors annual symposium. To this fry responds: "Wow, I love symposia!"

Wow, another joke I didn't get . The shame...

It's been discussed before in this thread, but the joke is that Fry is usually really dumb, yet he knows the correct plural form of a symposium.

1. There are blonde Mexicans.  They just aren't that common.

2. Just because Bender was born (i.e. built) in Mexico, that doesn't mean that he's of Mexican ancestry.

3. He's a freaking robot, for crying out loud.

4. In case no one else has said so, welcome to PEEL, defiantgiant.

Maybe he was just made in Mexico, but programmed to speak English.

Or if he was made in Mexico for the American market, he would presumably be programmed to speak English and... to... turn into a blonde human...

Two jokes I don't get from Bicyclops Built for Two:

"They'll come in handy if I need to cover any tiny manholes."

I'm pretty sure I get this one, though:

"Leela: Come on Al, can't you let the little guy out?
Alkazar: Jeez Leela, twice in one day? I'm not Superman!"

Am I just not thinking dirty enough?

They're both references to "Married With Children" were inuendos, badly concealed insults and sex jokes flew through the air.

For the last one, yes you need to think more dirty. The little guy Al is thinking about is his lower horn.

Because Earthican companies don't build robots 500 feet tall (for reasons seen in the episode), therefore he had to be build by aliens.

« #667 : 06-02-2004 00:37 »

Stockholms syndrome is when a hostage or kidnapp victim starts to feel empathy, even love, for their captors.

I'm sure there's a better explanation out there, but near enough is good enough.

Leela:'I think I may be a few years younger'
Amy:'Hey me too'. *wink*

Is there any particular reason why she winked, or am I just trying to read too much into the episodes...?

In "War is the H-world" , robot surgeon says: "it's not a war, it's a murder". Then he switch his manner of talking to "irrelevant" and say the same thing with the different pronunciation. What that change of pronuciation means?

It's a refrence to the TV Show "M*A*S*H".  The robot surgeon's name is "iHawk", a parody of Alan Alda's character on the show Hawkeye.  Some of the things Hawkeye was known for was Groucho Marx impressions and (especially in the later seasons) switching from light comedy to over-sentimentality.  So the joke is iHawk switched from his serious mode to a Groucho Marx impression.

He's implying that M-5438 is gay.  It's a stereotype that gay men like musicals.
