Metal. After an object breaks up in the sky, the smaller bits tumble, and it really isn't going to be going much more than 10m/s

Nifty. Cool religious people.

I notice a conspicuous silence from the usual critics, who are probably angrily re-reading the Westboro Baptist Church site.

Satan attempted to strike me with an evolution rock, but God's gifted craftsmen who built my roof spared me from Satan's wrath. It is by the blessings of God that my roof, created by His blessed children spared me from the evils of evolution.

Probably shouldn't test your god unless you have a rated eBay account.

Why do Moon rocks taste better than Earth rocks?
-Because they are a little meatier!

From the episode that brought you "I'm gonna build my own Moon Park. With blackjack, and hookers! You know what, forget the blackjack!"

In the deleted scenes on the full-season DVDs, there's a beat and then one of the gophers pipes up "I don't get it." They took the audio out of the version that shows on t.v., but you can still see the gopher's mouth moving silently for a moment (or it might be accompanied by a quiet sound-effect squeak). I always thought the "I don't get it" line really made the scene, but apparently the show really needed to shave that extra two seconds off...

Damn, seriously? You just dropped some Futurama knowledge on me. Thanks!
I agree. That would make the scene much better than just *groan* bad joke.

Disagree! The joke was bad on purpose; the gopher act was supposed to be terrible.

A person saying "I don't get it" to their own joke or their own groups' joke is a tired and unoriginal cliche anyway. Here is Chris Griffin doing it (admittedly I believe this aired a couple years after the Futurama episode in question). http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HzVA7pcI9do

Yeah, I just love clicking on a link only to get a Chase Bank ad superimposed on the screen and a wholly independent survey blurb wander across it, too.

someguy945: A person saying "I don't get it" to their own joke or their own groups' joke is a tired and unoriginal cliche anyway.


At the risk of dissecting the joke to death, the humor in the situation depends on whether you've conceptualized the robot gophers as just a pre-programmed theme show attraction or whether you've lost track of that fact and view the robot gophers as having some degree of sentience of their own (a concept not all that remarkable given Futurama's other sentient robots), despite the fact that they're nailed to sticks and forced to perform the same routine over and over again.

You're right -- the former would just be lazy joke writing (on the part of the "Luna Park" employee that wrote the gopher show script). But the latter has a particular degree of brilliance: the robot gopher is compelled by his programming to listen to the joke and laugh in response as part of the show, but then somehow has the ability to step (metaphorically) outside of his role as theme park attraction and express a sentient, non-programmed thought commenting on his own. And it's especially funny that the gopher is confused by a joke he apparently has to listen to show after show, like it just occurred to him this time that he doesn't get it. (Not to mention that there's a decent chance the viewer doesn't get the joke either.) Plus, the timing and delivery of the line are fantastic to boot (in a way that the Chris Griffin one isn't even close).

But what do I know? I think the very concept of the hedonism-bot is the height of absurdity: why would anybody design and build such a thing?

Uzzah: But what do I know?


More than me. I've never heard the line, and hadn't considered that proper timing and delivery could make it work. I'm having trouble imagining it, but I'll take your word for it that it's very well done.
