In "Bendless Love", when the group realizes Bender is responsible for the mysterious bending and straightening of things, they all gasp and Zoidberg points and says "J'Accuse!".

"J'Accuse" is the article written by Emil Zola, which accused the French government of anti-semitism and wrongfully imprisoning Captain Alfred Dreyfus on trumped up charges of treason.

Such is the depth of Matt Groening's humor!   :)

Welcome, Delta!

Well, for me, at least it solved the mystery of why there is an Emil Z. on the Springfield Board.
