Today's joke idea was submitted by DashCat. Since he does such a great job explaining it, I'll just give you the email he sent me. Here's what he had to say:
I was doing the 'Bomb them Again' mission for the Sha'tari Skygaurd the other day...when it occurred to me how pointless this quest is
Your mission (as far as I understand it) is to destroy Fel Cannonballs. The the only reason these cannonballs seem to exist, is to shoot down people on flying mounts....that are destroying the cannon balls. Given how far they can shoot when you're flying around in the Forge Camps...they definately don't have the range to hit Ogri'la or the Skygaurd outpost...so what exactly is the point?
Considering that the Skygaurd probably hands out millions of gold a day to people completing this mission...I think it would be funny to see Grek having a conversation with the quest giver about this.
'So...let me get this straight. You're going to pay me to fly over there and blow up some cannonballs?'
'And...the only reason they need those cannon balls is to stop people from destroying the cannon balls they use to...defend their cannonballs?'
And I can't think of a punchline...but I'm sure there is something funny to be said to finish the joke. Thanks Woody!
So I changed it up a little, substituting my character for one of the other Skyguard because I think you guys have probably seen enough of Grek lately. And DashCat9 didn't seem to realize that he'd already written the punchline.
Thanks again for the joke idea DashCat9.
