Two interesting easter eggs were submitted this week by Amaree @ Proudmoore and Amit.C for those who play the Burning Crusade expansion. Did you miss older submissions?
|144. NPC: Fantei and Mingo
Ogri’la and Lower City, Shattrath City
There are a couple of reagent vendors in Burning Crusade: In Lower City, Shattrath City the reagent vendor’s name is Fantei. In Ogri’la, Blade’s Edge Mountains the reagent vendor’s name in Mingo.
In Serenity, actor Yan Feldman plays as Mingo. His twin actor Rafael Feldman plays as Fanty.
Fanty and Mingo are twin brothers who appear in the Serenity comic as well as the film. They are seen as fences for goods acquired (coughs, Reagent Vendors) by Mal Reynolds and the crew of Serenity. Although identical twins, Mal is able to tell the two of them apart (he claims “Fanty’s prettier”). Their full names are Mingojerry and Fantastic Rample. The novelization states that they were named at birth by their mother – Mingojerry as a mis-remembered Mungojerrie from Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats by T. S. Eliot, and Fantastic for what she said when she realized that she was carrying twins, meaning she had to give birth again.

|145. NPC: Innkeeper Remi Dodoso (Innkeeper)
Area 52, Netherstorm
|Reference: Close Encounters of the Third Kind
Her name is a reference to the five note tune played in the Steven Spielberg UFO movie, Close Encounters of the Third Kind; Re, Mi, Do, Do (an octave lower), and Sol.
