Just a simple question, so if the mods feel this forum should be reserved for Futurama related sites, they can feel free to close it after I have an answer.

Does Brian Clevinger, creator of the hilarious webcomic 8-bit Theater at  http://www.nuklearpower.com/  post here?  I noticed multiple references to "a wizard did it" and "Sweet Zombie Jesus," which has gotta be pretty PEEL-specific, when I stumbled upon the page yesterday.  Also, and this may be a coincidence, but Evil Princess Sara reminds me quite a lot of VelourFog.
Speaking of whom, I hope to God there's no thread about this.  I only seached this forum, as I wasn't about to try Off-topic.

PS: Swordchucks!

Note: I say PEELer specifically, instead of just a Futurama fan, since I think everyone who watches the show enough to actually know "Sweet Zombie Jesus" (to my knowledge, it was only ever in deleted scenes, thanks to the fucking censors) posts here and constantly references it.  As for "A wizard did it," I think that's actually common on several message boards, probably originating either here or on some D&D site.  Not that those are the only places I post...

"Sweet Zombie Jesus" was a line from "Deep South". "A wizard did it" may or may not be a line from "Crimes of the Hot".

"A wizard did it" is from "Treehouse of Horror X", the "Desperately Xeeking Xena" segment.

Lucy Lawless (in her Xena gear) speak to a group of fans about her show "Xena: Warrior Princess".

Lawless: "... but I'm sure that once girls get to know the real you, you'll get plenty of dates.  Next question."
[hands go up.  She picks Frink]
Frink: "Yes, over here, n'hey, n'hey.  In episode BF12, you were battling barbarians while riding a winged Appaloosa, yet in the very next scene, my dear, you're clearly atop a winged Arabian.  Please do explain it."
Lawless: "Ah, yeah, well, whenever you notice something like that, a wizard did it."
Frink: "I see, all right, yes, but in episode AG4 --"
Lawless:   "Wizard!"
Frink: [under breath] "Aw, for glaven out loud."

If anyhting we can conclude this guy likes Futurama and The Simpsons.

Yeah, you're right. I was thinking "Oh sure, blame the wizards."

And "Sweet Zombie Jesus" wasn't actually censored out during its first showing(s) on Fox.  Cartoon Network actually censored it when they ran it; also anyone with $30 and a Futurama fetish has probably heard the phrase multiple times on their DVDs.
