I received an email from Mikey this week. Mikey wrote…
Good morning Confuse-cius,
“Thanks for all your tidbits of wisdom! I always learn a lot!
I hope you can answer my question, because not knowing the answer to it has been bugging me a lot recently.
Here it is. What does Fry from Futurama have in common with Bart Simpson?
Keep on being awesome!
Well, first off: thanks for your email and your kind words, Mikey – I appreciate having you as a fan!
So, Futurama, eh? Bart Simpson, eh? Possibly too many uses of the word ‘eh,’ eh?
The answer you seek is simple enough.
Bart Simpson and Fry are… of course… the same person.
Wipe that suspicious and doubtful look from your face – it’s true!
Bart Simpson, the lovably mischievous tot we all enjoy watching had to grow up and shed his love of pranks. And if you take Bart Simpson and subtract his love of pranks, what do you end up with? Fry!
Over the years, something must have happened to reduce Bart’s skin color from vibrant yellow to a more typically beige.
Once these changes took place, we were left with Fry, everybody’s favorite lovable goofball.
Bam. Questioned answered. Easy enough.
The tough question? Where did Zoidberg come from?
That’s another question for another day, but let me just say… Maggie had to grow up sometime.
Until next time, keep it factual out there!
