Futurama

Fan Fiction

Blinding Flash of Light
By Rush

Scene: Planet Express: Meeting Room. The room itself looks exactly the same all the PE staff sitting around the conference table look around the same as any other universe, but all of them apart from Bender (who has his foot cuffs up on the table smoking a cigar) and Zoidberg, have an extra finger, and that finger is the Baby Finger, giving them a total of five fingers rather than four as seen in the show.

Hermes: [is standing up reading from a sheet of paper] 'So on today's-- [There is a blinding flash of light followed by the appearance of an U-J-Bender. Everyone screams standing up, (apart from Bender taking a puff from his cigar completely undeterred) Zoidberg screams spraying ink out from his armpits all over everyone, then crouches down and runs sideways out of the room whooping.]

Bender: 'Relax everyone it's just an U-J-Bender?

Everyone: 'Oh. [They all sit back down.]

Bender: 'By the way, anyone wanna throw my bricks at Zoidberg later when I get the old 9pm brickiarrhea? [Everyone hums and nods agreeably.]

Farnsworth: 'Alright, but me first.

Amy: 'Bender, did you ever consider becoming a bricklayer?

Bender: 'I was infact a bricklayer for a short while, but every Bending Unit that was there was crapping all the time, and I kept falling over bricks.

Fry: 'Your bricks saved us many times to fight off dangerous aliens in deliveries.Bender: 'Yes, they're good throwing weapons, when are guns are out of ammo.Leela: 'Will you all literally stop talking about crap?

U-J-Bender: 'Five fingers? You guys look like freaks!

Farnsworth: 'No, it's because in your universe your used to seeing people with four fingers, with no Baby Finger, [He puts his foot on the table revealing it to have five toes.] additionally with just four toes, no Baby Toe, but in our universe the animators of their universe in which created our universe by using their; imagination, writing, and drawing skills are not as lazy as in your one. [Everyone stares at Farnsworth.]

Leela: 'What the hell are you talking about?

Farnsworth: 'Oh …. you … you don't know that our very existence is nothing but a science fiction cartoon called Futurama and that --- Oh, never mind, I'm just crazy that's all.

Everyone: 'Oh.

Farnsworth: [scratching his head] 'Yet, I think the animators still didn't give us all chins and eye brows, not to mention just plain black dots for eye pupils, but perhaps in a close up it might reveal we do infact have pupils with different colors? Plus us men, really have no lips and eyelashes? I wonder what Leela's pupil color is, she being a mutant and all. [Leela narrows her eye at him.] Perhaps Leela's eye pupil is purple or blue, maybe?

U-J-Bender: 'Whatever you say you crazy old mad man! [He disappears with a blinding flash of light.]

Hermes: 'Now, back to business.

The End.
