When translated, it says "This DVD includes a specially encoded Easter Egg which you are now meticulously translating from an alien language because you have no life and are a compulsive Nerdlinger(sic). How sad. Its especially sad if you don't speak English and you have to translate the alien language into English and then into your own tongue and you come upon a word like Nerdlinger, which really isn't a word at all, but still aptly describes someone who would actually translate such a word. Twice. And those of you who are reading this translation in a Futurama newsgroup aren't any better. We lurk on those newsgroups and we know what Nerdlingers you guys are, too. Of course you're also our biggest fans, which is sad in its own way. But, since you went to all this trouble to translate an Easter Egg, we do owe you something, so here's a secret about the show. The writers, producers, directors and most of the actors who worked on this show are all Nerdlingers, too."SexyIrishLeprechaun
