Genetic Engineering Mumbo Jumbo


In the Futurama episode "Mechanical House" Fry shares his dorm room at Mars University with a talking monkey named Guenther, the result of one of the Professor's experiments. Fry is curious how Guenther can talk.
Fry: "Is he genetically engineered?"

Professor: "Oh please, that's preposterous science fiction mumbo jumbo. Guenther's intelligence actually lies in his electronium hat, which harnesses the power of sunspots to produce cognitive radiation."
All disguised as an adorable miniature bowler. Now that's hard science fiction!
