After Pinky informed me this morning that the British consider Dr. Bunsen Honeydew and Beaker
as their top fictional scientists (beating such keen scientific minds as Spock and Dr. Emmett Brown), we had the following conversation:
Me: You know, Bunsen Honeydew is just made to look Asian--he's got glasses, a round head, he's kinda yellow--
Pinky: --He's GREEN!
Me: Well, he's *kind of* yellow... and the lack of eyes are clearly meant to imply some squinty-ness.
Pinky continues to disagree, however, so I'll leave it to you, fair readers--do you think Dr. Honeydew (graduate of Carnegie-Melonhead University) is Asian?
Researching further into this, I also learned that in the unlikely event of a water landing, Beaker can be used as a flotation device
In other news, some guy had such an obsession with Better Off Dead
's '67 Camaro, that he hunted it down and restored it
. I wonder if he can build a space shuttle out of household items...

Dr. Bunsen Honeydew's lack of eyes is does not necessarily indicate Asian-ness. Asians have eyes, at least as far as I can tell. Dr. Honeydew has no eyes because IT'S FUNNY....especially when he removes his glasses to take a closer look at something.
To me, Bunsen's always been an egghead, with a head literally shaped like an egg.
