    @Digital Frog that’s one of my favorite quips. Unfortunately, those who don’t understand binary don’t get it. For another nerd joke, check the latest Foxtrot http://www.gocomics.com/foxtrot/2011/10/02

    The funny this is that whenever there’s a computer/robot joke like this (especially in something like Futurama), the mechanoids speak binary. Very retro. It would be much more interesting if it was assembler. You’d have to pick a specific platform, but it would be just as fast, and you’d be able to debug the joke easier if the ’bot telling it got the punchline wrong.NOPJMP 0

    I think the idea is that even the uninitiated recognize a string of ones and zeros as binary. If it were hex code or assembler, they wouldn’t even know what it was.

    This is a takeoff of that Hugh Jackman Movie isn’t it? OR is the movie a takeoff of The Lee Marvin TWILIGHT ZONE episode of the same storyline? Hmmmm?
