Reader comments – ahh, yes, the juicy goodness following a meaty post. [1.Local] ducks past the swinging doors to see what readers have cooked up over the past week. Be sure to dive into the comments area of each thread (not this one!) and add your own thoughts – unlike your mama, we like us some hot, fresh backtalk.
|A 12 inch Ornate Triple Pepperoni Blunderbuss
When a sharp-eyed WoW fan noticed an "Ornate Triple Pepperoni Blunderbuss" at the local pizza joint, his WoW-lovin' heart leapt for joy – but when WoW Insider posted the shot, the comments began filling up with pooh-poohs from Doubting Thomases. Eden Pizza's owner came out to settle the difference: "I am the owner of Eden Pizza, and while I am not a WoW fan per se (I quit after Warcraft 3), my wife and brother-in-law are quite the WoW fans and they both work here with me," edenpizza says. "My brother-in-law and wife made this particular pizza up. And yes, we got a call today asking about it, so I thought I would check this blog out. The pizza is a popular one, and it's delicious. WoW fans are welcome here.
"Also, we can put a pizza on dry ice and FedEx it to Chicago, or anywhere in the 48 states (sorry, London) ... for a ridiculous price."
|On the lack of females among Azeroth's NPC races
Quite a few readers seemed to appreciate Keyra's backgrounder notes in this post: "'Of course, there are also Amani mobs called 'Witches,' which is generally a term reserved for females.' Perhaps in-game, but IRL this is not true. Looking back through the persecutions during the last few thousand years, men and women alike were called 'Witches' (the term 'warlock' is actually a misnomer that came about during the height of the persecutions in Scotland, and is a Scots Gaelic term meaning 'traitor'). The Stregheria (Italian Witches, and still in existence today) is both male and female and there is no differing term between them. The religion of Wicca is likewise both male and female with 'Witch' being a term shared between them. Just some food for thought. :-)"
