An oldie but goodie. Futurama's alcoholic robot, Bender, hopes to humiliate archrival chef Elzar by training with a Yoda-like mentor and then going on Iron Cook to challenge him. Training scenes include Bender peeling a potato à la Star Wars with a lightsaber and ingesting a can of whole peppercorns and then twisting his head around like a pepper mill. Video, after the jump.
