14 Pop Culture References in World of Warcraft

"OK, between Guitar Hero and this, I'm totally outing myself as a geek. But I don't care. Here it is: I play World of Warcraft. (It's not a problem; I can quit any time I want.) Ever since I started playing, I've started noticing little references to WoW everywhere. South Park and The Simpsons have both had episodes featuring the game (or in the case of The Simpsons, a suspiciously similar game).

And the more I advance in the game, the more pop culture references I notice in the game itself. I just love sly little mentions that not everyone would catch. I started doing a little research and there are way, way too many to mention, but I'm going to list a few of my favorites. I haven't actually discovered all of these myself, so it gives me something to watch out for while I'm playing. Besides murlocs and ghouls, I mean."

It is actually quite creepy how much attention that game is getting even in popular culture... perhaps because it has BECOME popular culture itself? I couldn't have seen that one coming when I first played WoW.

I'm just glad I quit when I did....

Great game and some good people. You have no idea how close you get to some of them... Dangerous though IMHO.
