Fun Facts

  • Beaver is right - that is indeed not Elvis Presley riding the flying pig, but Buddy Holly instead. What a cunningly treacherous distraction trick by that pesky Steve!
    • This is in fact quite possibly a reference to an episode of Quantum Leap, where the main character, Sam, met Buddy Holly in a farm. Holly had written a song about a pig on the farm named Sue, which he called (naturally) "Piggy Sue", until Sam suggested he change it to "Peggy Sue".
  • This just in, from the most authentic of all sources himself - "Qual'n'gurtha has been imprisoned in there for 40,000 years."
  • Buddy Holly rides flying pigs. duh
  • Qual'n'gurtha is quite possibly a reference to Shuma-Gorath of Marvel fame. The "Lord of Chaos, Master of the Old Ones, Ruler of a hundred dimensions" possesses, aside from a desire to destroy the world, the exact body and appearance of Qual'n'gurtha; they share the single eye, green colour, and both have numerous tentacular appendages. Some speculation suggests that Qual'n'gurtha is no more than Shuma-Gorath's younger and less-powerful brother who nobody has ever heard about. Now we know why.
