Is Tal a joke?
This came up in my game yesterday, and seeing as Monte lives in the PNW, I was curious:

Is the name Tal a joke referring to Cal Worthington (and his dog Spot)?

I mean, he is specifically mentioned as being able to provide a used wagon.

I found myself singing "If you want used wagon, go see Tal!"

For those who are not familiar, Cal Worthington was a used car dealer with lots from California to the Canadian Border. He had horrible commercials where he could be seen with a variety of exotic animals. There was also a commerical where he was bandaged and had a black eye because he'd been beaten up by a customer. . .



There's no business like gnoll business

heh - I remember those commercials!
Heh - that's funny - I wonder if it's just a coincidence.

Probably is - but now it's in my head - this is likely why all the Tharzidunians go mad....

OH man! Flash back! I'm not sure if someone named Tal and used wagons are anything other than a coincidence though. I recently moved to the PNW from LA and I haven't seen any Cal Worthington lots or commercials up here at all...

On a similar note, if Monte ever happens to read this thread...

what's the deal with Wormspike? Shaved body hair and goggles? Sounds like he's on the Ogre Swim Team. Is this a joke based on someone huge you saw at the pool or something? My players are dying to know...
