“It’s Pretty Deep, But There Are Also a Lot of Flaming Belches”
Good News Everyone!
“It’s pretty deep, but there are also a lot of flaming belches,” he said. “We pull you in with the mathematical theorems, and we keep you with the flaming belches.” Daivd X. Cohen, head writer of Futurama, on the new season that premieres tonight!
In other I-just-looked-it-up-on-Wikipedia-news, Cohen’s actual middle initial is an S, but he was forced to change is because the Writers Guild of America does not allow members to have the same exact name. He chose “X”–because it sounded “sci-fi-ish” and included a period “so people don’t think it’s some mathematical formula: ‘David times Cohen’ or something.”
