Ooo I found a "culture" reference!

I was looking over Pike's blog today, and I noticed her 'Words of Wisdom' line. It definitely sounded more like a Horde-side hunter trainer, so I followed the link to the NPC's wowwiki page:

Lanka Farshot is a level 11 hunter trainer located at Camp Narache in the tauren starting zone of Mulgore. Although he shares the same last name with Mixie Farshot, they apparently are not related.

Mixie Farshot? Well, I just had to follow that, too. Turns out she is a goblin ammo vendor in Hellfire Pennisula. Why in the world would a goblin and a Tauren share the same surname... unless the goblin could be the adopted child of the Tauren family! And what popular reference do we know where such a scenario occurs? Why, Looking For Group! A-ha! I see what you did there, Blizzard! Okay, so I might be stretching it a little (after all, the goblin isn't is a priest), but I like to think I figured it out :P

Ooooh they must have added that into the Wiki since I last looked at the article (which was probably when I was putting it on my blog, months ago.)

Very interesting.

FOR PONY!
