Surely, it was meant as a compliment

In one of his infamous temp posts (left up long enough to hit the feed readers, but gone when you click through), Jong alludes to a conversation between himself and my alter ego on Argent Dawn in the Singular Angular Notion guild (or whatever that stands for, I’m terrible with that stuff).

He was soliciting opinions on hunter pets (he has a baby hunter there) and I sang the praises of the Dwarven Hunter standby, the Bear. My words were “it’s like having a pocket pally”. Apparently, where poor Jong comes from, Pallys don’t tank very well, as he, alas, didn’t attach the same significance to the statement as I did.

To set the record straight (since I can’t do it over there), this was indeed a compliment. Where I come from, we’ve been blessed with excellent Pally tanks. They’re made out of flypaper and bricks and bitter memories. When our guild’s main raiding pally tank rips off his shirt and hollers IT’S CLOBBERING TIIIIME, BISHES!!! ((This may be a slight exaggeration.)), every mob around knows that the only way out is THROUGH that Dwarven ball of fury and righteous indignation.

So, when I say my bear (a polar bear named “Bumbles”) is like having a pocket pally, I mean that we have some Serious. Honking. Tankage.

So now we’re clear.
