This Concept of "Wuv" Confuses and Infuriates Us!

Guard: Exalted leaders, the Earth messengers have arrived bearing a peace offering from their weak and fearful government.
Lrrr: Oh, very well. This is a Joey-heavy episode anyway.
[He turns the TV off. Enter Leela, Fry and Bender with the barrels of candy hearts.]
Lrrr: I am Lrrr of the planet Omicron Persei 8.
[A picture slips on the wall. He puts it back. Leela reads from a piece of paper.]
Leela: (reading) Esteemed potentates of Omicron Persei 8, please accept these 20 billion candy hearts as proof that Earth loves you this much!
[She holds her arms out wide. Lrrr and Nd-Nd taste the candy hearts and immediately spit them out.]
Lrrr: These candies are chalky and unpleasant!
Nd-Nd: And what is this emotion you humans call "wuv"?
Lrrr: Surely it says "love"?
Nd-Nd: No, "wuv". With an Earth "W". Behold!
Lrrr: (shouting) This concept of "wuv" confuses and infuriates us!
