Play it again, Sam...

There's a Change.org petition for Blizzard to immortalize Robin Williams in WoW.

I would like that, but within the past hour it was announced that Lauren Bacall has passed away today as well.  If Blizzard does immortalize Robin Williams at the World's End Tavern, I would also like them to have Lauren Bacall and Humphrey Bogart at a table nearby, watching the show.

EtA: Yes, I know that my title is a) a misattributed quote, and b) from Ilsa Lund in Casblanca, played by Ingrid Bergman. However, it didn't feel right referencing a bar such as World's End Tavern without using that quote. I suppose I could have used "You know how to whistle, don't you, Steve?", but that scene isn't from a bar.


  1. I didn't know that. I love your idea. I'd spend some time Bogart and Bacall taking in the show.

    1. I'm sure it'd resonate more with the older WoW players than the younger ones --and to be honest about it, even you and I are "young" when it comes to Lauren Bacall's film career-- but her roles were timeless and her death shouldn't be overshadowed by Robin's.
