Infosphere:Spotlight article for week 24 of 2012
Popplers are undeveloped Omicronian young. They are born in large pits on an unattended, nursing type-M planet, watched over by nanny cams. These larval Omicronians have an irresistible taste to humans and many alien species.
Popplers were first discovered by hungry Planet Express employees Fry, Bender and Leela. The taste of the then-unknown objects was so addictive that they filled the Planet Express Ship and brought them to Earth, where an exclusive deal was struck to serve them at Fishy Joe's fast food restaurants.
