is named after the sweet, but lazy, 25 year old delivery boy who gets frozen in the year 2000 and thawed in the year 3000 on the television show sci-fi comedy cartoon Futurama.
|See the resemblance, I think our Fry needs a red jacket.|
Other episodes have a slightly more sardonic take on the holiday, as any search of Futurama memes will demonstrate:
Anyway I had a cafe press coupon I received as a promotional offer from an earlier purchase and I had decided to use it to make Fry and Weasley Valentine's shirts, it seemed given Fry's name that Futurama themed shirts would be perfect. I use the design our own shirt component on the Cafe Press website and by using quotes from the show and some free clip art made the shirts (I apologize for the hideous pictures of me below holding Fry and Weasley was the only way to ensure the shirts could be seen).
Fry's shirt reads: "This concept of "Wuv" confuses and infuriates us." A reference to the candy hearts episode. Weasley's reads: "It's All So Complicated with the Flowers, and the Romance, and the Lies Upon Lies." A reference to Dr. Zoidberg's line in Why Must I Be a Crustacean in Love.
Suffice it to say but you have to be a Futurama fan to appreciate these shirts, which is why I love them, and the pugs don't seem to mind wearing them at all.
You can use the cafe press site to many any kind of pet, or human, shirt you would like. They have a wide range of styles and you can design your own around you favorite sports teams, books, films, or TV shows. Its a fun way to personalize your own, or your dogs, wardrobe. Now we are ready for our Valentine's day Futurama episode binge!
