But, uh, I don't think that's what he meant. I mean, I HOPE not. Because if that really is a job somewhere, I wanna know how much it pays an hour and if they have benefits!
Anyway, as I was... It's Orphan Week in WoW and I've heard gossipy stories about people carting around orphans as their pets and killing them in all these horrible ways. Naturally, this made me want my own orphan to drown, maim, and otherwise destroy to only have it come back so I could do it again!
But alas, after taking my own orphan around VC (an instance in WoW), it seems that he's just like any other pet, but with a question mark over his head (for quests). Apparently, there was only musing of all these things you could do to the kids, and the 'telephone effect' caused it to sound as if you really could do some messed up stuff.
I suppose this is yet another one of those "P/C" things. I mean, burning kids with AOEs? I guess that probably sends out some bad message or something. Just like, even though it would make logical sense, you can't skin humanoids. The world is odd.
Oh well, at least carting the kid around town got me five gold.
