Yuck! That episode was disgusting, but hilarious. I would probably have eaten the Popplers though, intelligent or not. They sound tasty, lol *licks lips, then is looked at awkwardly by people near him*. It was a great idea for a story, especially the twist at the end, with Leela almost being eaten by the Omicronians, then the hippie being eaten instead *is booed for revealing the end of the episode*.
After discovering a delicious food that they name Popplers, Fry, Bender, and Leela sell them to the world. Everyone loves them, then Leela discovers that Popplers are intelligent beings when one calls her "Momma!"
