WHad Libs, Vol. 2

| Comments

Back on 9/11/08, Rhoelyn at PoC posted a fun little activity spawned from BA itself: WHad Libs. (That’s WH as in Wowhead, natch.) The idea is simple: a piece of text is posted, not necessarily WoW-related in the least (heck, it’s funnier if it’s not), with various pieces of text underlined. Your job, fellow blogger (or commenter, if you don’t have a blog) is to fill in the underlined portions with links to Wowhead - preferably items, quests, spells, or achievements, so that we get the nice hovering tooltips.

Well, round 2 never appeared, so I figure what the heck - let’s throw something out there and see who (or what) bites. I’ll go with a real classic this time; from the works of Charles Dickens comes a passage that pretty much everyone except Matt will know.

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to heaven, we were all going direct the other way - in short, the period was so far like the present period, that some of its noisiest authorities insisted on its being received, for good or for evil, in the superlative degree of comparison only.

– from “A Tale of Two Cities”
