At the begining of "the problem with popplers" That advert from Molten Boron comes on. Talk about going over my head! I just wondered if it was an american joke and I didn't understand it because I'm English.

Okay,

These are probably all jokes made up by people who spend half their time making up jokes at Fox, people who have saddd screensavers and talk about em all day, people who send pathetic attempts through CC:Mail to be friends with a geeky girl across the street, people who watch Star Trek, people who can make farting noises, people who spend night and day recording repeats of sci-fi-movies, and most of all... People who are from Mexico and get paid 2cents per year to try and make up sentances that sound funny in their language, These are the People who make life worth living.

Thank You, Im david mcgee and thats all for tonight.

aww, bullshit - you're describing the writers that make futurama and simpsons like they are nerds - nerds have no sense of humor or social skills (the stereotype at least), but they are just normal people with an incredible sense of humor. Tell you what - people say im a funny person, but i could never come up with jokes of the intellectual calibre the guys in futurama do - thats the good stuff about futurama & simpsons - the humor there is dual-natured. There is the superficial laugh which is for everyone to enjoy, and then there is a deeper meaning which further intensefies the humerous experience if you can pick up the details

I gotta go with Dave on this, hehe. You and I might not get the joke about Molten Boron, but is this the first time on Futurama or the Simpsons where nothing made sense, and yet it's still funny? Of course not! Matt Groening and his team of writers are a clever, crazy bunch!! Homer pours milk on some cornflakes and the cereal catches on fire...what the heck?!? We know it makes no sense, and yet we still laugh hysterically. The Molten Boron ad might have been a clever joke that nobody got, or maybe it was meant to not make any sense. But we still must accept the craziness and cleverness of the show. Baconated grapefruit? Hahaaha...

I don't know the name of the episode, but it's the one where Smithers takes a vacation and Homer becomes Mr. Burns' assistant. And whenever he tries to make breakfast for Mr. Burns, everything catches on fire...even the cereal!

And yep!! I REALLY like the new message board  :)

Ha ha I remember that one! That was great. "You call this a tax return???" ha ha. Ok anyway yeah most of the jokes I don't think people get them. When I'm watching with my brothers and sister I know that they don't get most of the jokes. I'm sitting there trying to explain to them why the corn flakes started on fire...
My Sister: Why did the corn flakes start on fire?
Me: I dunno, it's a joke.
Sister: I don't get it, it doesn't make sense.
Me: It's not supposed to make sense. It's just a joke!
Sister: Well jokes should be funny.
Me: THAT WAS FUNNY!!!!
Sister: This show is stupid, I'm leaving.
Me: Get outta Bumtown ya bum.
Sister: What? I don't get it.

Anyway my point is... what was my point again? Oh right... jokes are funny.

I think I've figured out the Molten Boron thing... Notice the jingle, "Nobody does it like Molten Boron" ... that's the Sara Lee jingle, "Nobody does it like Sara Lee..."

It's robot food. Molten boron is supposed to be an incredible conductor of electricity.

Haha very true, Sk8...

Speaking of the fire thing on the Simpsons, there have been MANY other fire gags that have made no sense. I'm not sure which episode THIS was in either but one time some school kids pushed over the teacher's desk and it caught on fire somehow. Anyone remember that? I have all these scrambled Simpsons memories in my head. I have every episode on tape. I just can't always remember which scenes were in which episodes...

Remember the old crusty dude's electric car in the episode about the schoolbus being ripped apart by a gremlin? That caught fire when it hit the tree (which, unless it had some kind of massive electrical short, was pretty unusual!)

I can't remember which episode it was but us poor Brits only get the same six or so episodes repeated endlessly by the BBC on terrestrial TV!

I think the things catching on fire gag on the simpsons is just a running joke about how on TV shows and movies almost every car that crashes or rolls over MUST blow up or catch on fire. So when you tip over a desk and it goes up in flames...you see what I'm getting at? Hyperbole!

Of course, trying to explain a joke kinda takes the funny out of it sometimes...

About Molten Boron, I saw a comment from the DVD's of futurama where they talk about this.

Molten Boron is only a weird name intending to be a disgusting product who no one likes. The song that uses this ADVERT is the tipical used in the "old TV fashioned products" and the original text from this advert was "Nobody likes Molten Boron", but when the singers make the record they said "Nobody does it like does molten boron" (I don't know if this is accurate because I saw this in Spanish).

Anyone seen my Pizza?, damn! I'm waiting one since 1999.

Wow, a thread that is more than 2 years old. That guy even has an animated gif as an avatar.

They also show the molten boron advertisement in the season DVD extras.

  :eek: WOW!! Look at this old thread!

The original line Christopher Tyng made was "Nobody does it like Molten Boron", and David explained that it was supposed to be "Nobody doesn't like Molten Boron". They fixed it by copying the n-sound in Boron, and pasted it in between "does" and "it". The marvels of digital editing.

Welcome to PEEL, IC_Wiener. Enjoy it here.

Even though it was along time I would have to agree with cat here. I think the jingle is in reference to Sarah Lee and is a bit of a parody with Molten Boren. But then again - who wouldn't like a big can of molten lava/toxi waste/whatever the heck boren is?  :)

Boron is the 5th element in the periodic table. And that's quite some barrel that woman is holding, as boron melts at 2300-2350C.

Yes 'n no. On the DVD Commentary, they say that the singers were supposed to record:
"Nobody doesn't like Molten Boron!"
But they recorded:
"Nobody does it like Molten Boron!"
So the editor took the "n" from the end of either Molte-n- or Boro-n- and stuck it in place of the "i" in "it".

I think that half the joke is that nobody in their right mind would actually want molten boron. It would be almost entirely useless to the average person. It would be like an ad today for misshapen lumps of tangled chicken bones.

Thought of it being sort of like one that one SNL ad where they went on about a piece of manifacturing machinery done in the style of a normal commertial, things like "It stops overflow of the ducts by 12% more then the compeditors..."

You know I always thought that if you switched the first to letters in the words Molten Boron and got Bolten Moron, that the joke was Moron. Stupid me.

Nothing.

Molten Boron, however is liquified boron. Boron is the fifth element in the periodic table and liquify above 2076 C. Meaning it's insanely hot, which also explains why noone doesn't like molten boron.

Isn't boron the stuff they use for control rods in nuclear reactors?
