Expansion Easter Eggs & References

This post on the Beta forums by MedievalBoy lists out many of the easter eggs and jokes and pop culture references we can look forward to in The Burning Crusade. Be warned: expansion spoilers ahoy!

The endless jokes and homages are one of the things I love most about Blizzard games. From the Fight Club references in Undercity to the Stormwind bankers named Olivia, Newton and John to slightly more obtuse jokes like the Nintendo-heavy Un’Goro Crater with its giant monkeys carrying barrels and Zelda quest. You get the feeling, after awhile, that every name in the game is either a tip to some Warcraft lore or it’s an allusion to some cultural artifact.

The current Live game is full to bursting with pop culture. What are your favorites?

    When Smokey Sings, I get Violent. Probably the first time I ever RL LOL’d from just reading a quest name.

    I just completed the Alliance First Aid quest to get past 225. You have to heal the sick and one of them is singing Pink Floyd. Goodbye cruel word, I’m leaving today. Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye.
