A nerdy party recap is once more in order! This week, the show’s theme was Futurama, a hilarious adult animated series set in the year 3000 in which an oddball crew of characters, including a man who was cryogenically frozen in 1999, run a galactic delivery service known as the Planet Express.
If you haven’t seen the show, I highly encourage you to do so because it’s available on Netflix in its entirety. It takes a cartoonish view of what the future might look like and is humorous, ridiculously brilliant, full of strange characters and events.
Additionally, it’s the ideal party theme! My pals come over to indulge in some themed food and drinks while we geek out about different aspects of the show and lament the fact that it ended three years ago.
As for the food, we did not disappoint! We had three pizzas straight from Panucci’s Pizza, Hedonism Bot bruschetta and crostini, president (puppy) chow, and dark matter bacon-wrapped dates. We drank Benderbrau, Slurm and Mom’s Robot Oil.
I created ‘froot’ cups! A scene when the group stops at Fishy Joe’s, a fast food restaurant, can be found in the episode “Fry am the Egg Man.” Worse yet, the man at the order window inquires, “What type of cheese filling do you want in that? ” Leela is unimpressed by the unhealthy alternatives and chooses the fruit cup, which she discovers is spelled “froot”.
In the Futurama universe, Slurm is a common soft drink that is sold by the “Bureau of Soft Drinks, Tobacco, and Firearms,” and it is Fry’s favorite beverage. The episode where we learned more about the slurm drink was one of my favorites.
We learn the many mysteries surrounding Willy Wonka’s chocolate factory, Fry (along with Bender and Leela), and how the SLURM drink is actually made (you don’t want to know), in that episode, which combined one of my favorite childhood books (Charlie and the chocolate factory) with the Futurama universe.
This slurm’s base is my home-made ginger limeade! You ought to absolutely check it out if you haven’t already. With the distinctive flavor and warming spice of ginger, it is a sweet, tart, refreshing beverage. To achieve the same vivid green hue of the slurm drink in this sparkling limeade, I colored it with yellow and green food coloring.
