My preferred nightly cocktail for the Tortuous Twenties has been:

1 oz. everclear​
1 oz. everclear​
Pour into a chipped shot glass. Add a lima bean.​
Set aside the shot glass and peer quizzically at the lima bean while chugging the rest of the bottle of everclear.​
Add a pinch of Kool Aid, for flavour.

Wait...goblins weren't fey creatures all this time?

Weird.
Don't worry. I'm writing a post about it right now. Long story short, it's because of Tolkien. Middle Earth's Goblins and Hobgoblins weren't considered "Fey", so that carried over to D&D, even though folklore Goblins, Hobgoblins, and Bugbears were about as "Fey" as they could get.

Edit: "Goblin" and "Orc" were originally supposed to be synonymous, but the movies and D&D made them different creatures.

But, but, Gary said Tolkien didn't influence him that much.

(I'm sorry, I shouldn't have had that Imperial Stout, I can't stop laughing).

Huh, that's interesting.

Now I'm picturing which forces made each tech/media company... and it makes too much sense....ecchh.
Lolth made Reddit, because it's awful and everyone there hates it, but it always ensnares you with something awesome or interesting to get you coming back. Gruumsh made Facebook as a way to get everyone in the world mad at everyone else in the world. Maglubiyet made Twitter to usurp Facebook's title of "the worst social media site on the internet". Sune created Instagram as a way to show mortals how much better she is than them. Cthulhu made Youtube as a way to learn more about humans and ways to exploit us in his upcoming destruction of humanity (it turns out climate change works fairly well). And a Slaad Lord made Tik Tok to be the most chaotic of all the social media.
