Good news, everyone!

Whoop whoop whoop! Phil Plait of Bad Astronomy just posted the best entertainment news I’ve heard in months: Futurama is coming back!

Sure, there’s skepticism that creators Matt Groening and David X. Cohen can produce new episodes that live up to the standards of the original, but even if they can’t the new episodes are likely to be funnier than almost anything on TV other than Futurama reruns. And The Simpsons, of course.

A couple of my favorite Futurama quotes of all time:

Look, I don’t know if shooting penguins will help the environment or not. But I do know the decision shouldn’t be in the hands of people who just wanna kill for fun.

— Leela, The Birdbot of Ice-Catraz

By the way, I took the liberty of fertilizing your caviar.
