Professor Frink

"Professor Frink, Professor Frink/He'll make you laugh, he'll make you think!"

Professor John Frink is Springfield's local mad scientist. He appears to be a slight parody of Jerry Lewis' character, the nutty professor. He has a trademark mannerism of using nonsense words when excited (and he's always excited).

In a flashback we see him lecturing at the Springfield Heights Institute of Technology, demonstrating the Frinkiac supercomputer and predicting that "that within 100 years, computers will be twice as powerful, ten thousand times larger, and so expensive that only the five richest kings of Europe will own them."

A programming language/calculating tool (http://futureboy.homeip.net/frinkdocs/) has been named in honor of the brilliant Professor Frink.
