    So I was researching a spider I found while putting in a concrete slab behind my home wondering if it was a brown recluse since they're known to live in / around Dallas...

    Turns out this particularly dangerous breed of spider has a nickname due to it's pattern on it's upper-torso-y-thing.

    The nickname is the "Fiddleback" spider.

    I instantly connected it to the raid mob in Sunderock Springs and found a new appreciation for the thought behind the name.

    Just wondering if anyone else has some other neat connections like that, be it a building, NPC, item, etc that isn't glaringly obvious?

    One of the 6 cursecallers in the CurseCaller event in the Inktu`Ta raid is named "Cursecaller Fhqwhgads". Like many mobs in GoD it sounds like a run-of-the-mill "I'd like to buy a vowel, Pat" mobs. It seems to actually be a reference to a homstarrunner clip:

    The raid in underfoot expansion in underquarry where you kill all the badgers to spawn a snake and then do it again to spawn a mushroom. It is pretty much exactly like the badger badger badger song.

    Sorry was the first thing that came into my head when I saw the spider. :)

    There's a shoulder that drops in ferrott, the dream called Great Ape's Nape Drape. Not really a reference to anything, I just always thought it was funny

    A lot of the guys in the upper floor (around the wall) of Sanctus Seru are anagrams of folks that ran EQ sites: Baelish, Allakhazam, etc.

    In tower of frozen shadow anniversary raid (and maybe in the static zone, I'm not sure) the wedding guest names are also anagrams of employees of SoE.
