a few of my favourite things...

Mogul steps out of the Stormwind auction house and leans nonchalantly against the doorframe. He wears a top hat, tux and spats and squints expertly though a ruby monacle, his hand rests upon the enormous diamond topping his cane. He smiles a mogulish smile and waves a mogulish wave then winks to an assistant - somewhere the opening strains of a familiar tune are heard over a tinny gnomish boombox. Mogul bursts into song!


Elementium Ore and Portable Holes
Bright Shadowspirit diamonds and True Bars of Gold
Full sets of Emberfire, Glyphs tied with strings
These are a few of my favorite things

Backsmithing blues that sell despite the knockers
Personal guild banks overflowing their coffers
Beer-Basted Crocolisk the new food of kings
These are a few of my favorite things

Mogul dances down the steps patting a dwarven hunter's bald head as he passes - the hunter scowls at him.

Cata JC rings for 350 gold
Stockpiles of Wrath chants that sell though they're old
Gold-filigree toolboxes wobbling on springs
These are a few of my favourite things

When the patch bites
When low sales sting
When I'm feeling sad
I simply remember my favourite things
And then I don't feel so bad

Shuffling his spats Mogul jumps to the lowest tier of the fountain, splashing water at those checking mail with his cane

Cheap stacks of pyrite and gems almost epic
Discussing the breakpoints of financial ethics
Grinding out Jeeves for bank accessing
These are a few of my favorite things

Rare Savage Leather and bars of all types
Boycotting fortune cards for all of their hype
Flipping purples on-mass for the profit this brings
These are a few of my favorite things

The tuxedo-wearing Auctioneer skitters up the bank steps through the teller area to arrive at the guild bank vault. He spots Banker Kristin Cazarez and makes the well-known "like a tiger" gesture to her. Catching her up he twirls her impulsively and kisses her on the cheek. She laughs.

Cruisin for lowballs and buying them out
Undercutting glyphers they cry and they shout
Breaking the opposition and stealing their blingz
These are a few of my favorite things

When the patch bites
When low sales sting
When I'm feeling sad
I simply remember my favourite things
And then I don't feel so bad

A single golden rose is thrown to Mogul from off-stage left which he catches without looking then presents to Kristin Cazarez - they laugh again. There is an audible "click" as a boombox is turned off. The vault door swings quietly closed.

Stay liquid folks,

Mogul.
