Good news, everyone!

I’ve discovered a way for you to read things in Professor Farnsworth voice!

If this didn’t work it’s most likely your not much of a fan of Futurama.  If you aren’t; you should be.  It’s a great cartoon from the Creator if the Simpsons.

I don’t really have anything else to say on the matter, it’s just funny how certain phrases become so ingrained in one’s head you can use them against people.  Such as the McDonalds jingle; regardless of whether you like McDonalds you can’t help but have your internal voice complete the jingle whenever you hear “Ba Da Ba Ba Baa”.  Companies pay millions for this brainwashing to happen, yet if shows are awesome enough they become ingrained in your psyche simply by having their own catchphrases.

I’ve always wondered if this was possible for a company to include a product placement in a catchphrase on TV or in a movie.  We’ve seen horrible attempts such as in “I, Robot” with Will Smith, and we’ve seen “Harold And Kumar Go to White Castle” but nothing to the extent that Homer screams out to shop at Wal-Mart or anything crazy.  Perhaps placements such as this instantly make them uncool and thus fail, and I would only imagine they’d tarnish the show’s PR for ahwile.  Don’t know, I’m just rambling.  I hope the joke worked, if not it’s your fault for not liking cool stuff!

Edit: Found a youtube link of a bunch of Farnsworth moments of him saying his catchphrase, for those who are not familiar with the character I’m refering to:
