Way back on Tuesday 17 June 1997, Kevin McGuire asked on the Whorl list:

>>On a more frivolous note - is there any
>>connection between Typhon/Piaton and that
>>episode of the Simpsons where Mr. Burns
>>head is grafted onto Homer's body?

>>"But Homer, tomorrow we are meeting with
>>Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands"

As far as I can see, no one ever answered that question, but I finally got
to see that episode of "The Simpsons" on BBC2 this evening and I would say
definitely, yes! That really does look like a Gene Wolfe homage. A bizarre
one, it's true, but an homage none the less.
