Keona, considering my age, I’m not sure I can call many people ‘kids these days.’ It was more a stereotypical rant.
Anyway, it’s quite alright, I’m sure the space pope won’t assign more of a penance than you can handle…
I know it was a stereotypical rant, I was merely trying to…play along? (burned brain) I had to look up penance..though, using good old context clues and common sense, I ventured a guess and came close to the actual definition, and you know Brannigan will want in on it, too. (They have costumes for him, you know. I’m sure your wife would be unperturbed.)
Oh, the Futurama fail hurts me more than the crappy Lamebook posts. I’m so obsessed with that show it’s ridiculous…I had a bird named Kif (he lives with a friend now), a kitten named Morbo (it turns out I’m allergic to cats) and a betta named Zapp (he died)…I still live happily with Fry (my schnauzer), Brainley (an Oranda goldfish, named after the giant brain), and Lrrr, ruler of the planet Omicron Persei “Snake” (my corn snake). Even my mom got into it…she rescued Fry’s brother and we named him Bender!
My wife would definitely be perturbed. I would be even more perturbed. Unless she were wearing it although even then the boots are a bit… out there. Of course the outfits that the males wear in the DOOP are based on the outfits for female crewmen from Star Trek: TOS. So the female version has been around much longer.
Sorry, perhaps my posts should come with built-in dictionaries or something….
On a logistical note, how does Zapp avoid dangling past the bottom of his velour uniform? Tape? Boxers? Miniscularity (not a real word)?
1. Stupid. Many many years ago it was common practice, especially among “richer” families, to have a wet nurse who breastfed the child for whom they were compensated to care. I’m not sure of the reasons WHY (e.g. the mother had “more important” duties to tend to – possibly social; she couldn’t produce enough milk or just couldn’t get the hang of breastfeeding; etc) but whatever the reason, the baby still needed nutrition somehow and they had no baby formula to rely on then.
However, that was the most ridiculous time and method of telling your child that that’s how they received nutrition as a baby.
2. Kinda dumb too. Seen those so many times.
3. If I was that kid’s mom I’d be pissed too. Thought it looked like something a middle schooler produced (though most current middle schoolers – or high schoolers either – have no clue what the hell Slayer is) but that is an insult to even middle schoolers. But from a college kid? Jesus… bad handwriting has always been a huge annoyance to me, though, pretty much since kindergarten/1st grade. I hate my own handwriting most times but at least it’s usually legible.
I LOVED Futurama but I now realize I’m not nearly a big a fan as some of you guys. Wow!
I thought it was Kip too…
I mostly just love the episode in which Ed O’Neal guest-starred (guest-voiced? lol) and he and umm…Katie Segal’s character (you guys are gonna tear me a new one, aren’t you?) reminisced Al and Peggy from Married with Children.
As a fully licensed doctor I can confirm that breast milk is actually very good for… getting a massive erection, nothing like lactate and cornflakes in the morning to put me in a damp-hand shuffle mood.
mad2, I vote for miniscularity (I had to copy/paste that to get it right, LOL!)…we’ve all heard of overcompensating, and the Nimbus is overcompensating to the extreme! Plus, thanks to Leela, we all know he’s unimpressive in bed.
