This blog entry is 4 months old, but apparently Gail Simone wrote a script for the Futurama comics that was never used:

And it's kinda obvious why it wasn't used.

Ok, I agree with Venus. For one thing, it's way too short and out-of-character. Although that oregeno thing may be useful later... I might use that.

The only thing that was really 'Futurama' about it was Zoidberg using the salt shaker as a medical scanner. That was hilarious! And if you don't get the reference, shame on you!

Zoidberg's Fienberger?

Maybe it would have fleshed out better if printed, but it did kinda fall flat when placed in a text enviroment.

It saddens me to agree.  :(
Yes, something is "lost in translation" from a visual medium to a text medium, but... c'mon.

It read like a bad fan-fic.  :hmpf:

Yep. Zoidberg's Fienberger would be the correct term. That was funnier than the Jefferies tube on the Planet Express ship.

That would not have made a very good comic book story.  Just reading the script and you could see why.

No! Think of the Fienberger! Think of the Fienberger!

Actually, KurtPikachu2001 is right. It's not shippy.

Oh yes, and it stinks.

But aspiring writers write stuff that stinks before they write famous stuff. Do you know how long it took David Gerrold? Or for non-Trek nerds, Joanne Rowling? Ok, Jo's a bad example, she was successful pretty much right away, but you get my point.
