Pop culture is full to the brim with characters who are unlikable for reasons big and small, but few are as disliked as Dr. John Zoidberg, of Decapod 10.  A dedicated friend (he has worked with Professor Farnsworth for years, just in case the Professor shows symptoms of Hyper-Malaria) who never quits (even though his lack of skill, talent or success as a doctor makes it clear that he should), Dr. Zoidberg isn’t that much more abrasive than the rest of the Planet Express crew, save for maybe Leela, and that only depending on how you view the issue of physical violence.  Sure, he’s a jerk, but is he really that much more of a jerk than the other jerkes?  It’s a question for the ages (the ages of 6-10), leading to today’s crustacean query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) wonders if you have any single lady friends, asking: WHY NOT ZOIDBERG???


About Author

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture! And a nice red uniform.
