Then Blizzard looked at its huge Orc statue, and wept


You’re Blizzard. You develop a little game called Word of Warcraft. You move into a new office building—a sign of your importance—and want to commemorate said action. You hire the dudes responsible for the Lord of the Rings special effects, and tell them, “Make us a big statue of an Orc on his mount, looking sinister.” And they do.

It’s 12 feet tall. It speaks Brazilian Portuguese. (Note: It does not.) Blizzard employees received a small version of it some time ago.

But it’s Horde, and Horde are jerks.
