Random Joke & Alt Questions

I love Mitch Hedberg. His delivery is great and his material is almost always funny. One of the tracks from his comedy CD came up on my iPod on the way in to work this morning, figured I'd share:

There is a commercial on late-night TV for this thing you attach to a garden hose. It says, "You can water your hard-to-reach plants with this product." Who the f-ck would make their plants hard to reach!? That seems so very mean. "I know you need water, but I'm gonna make you hard to reach. I will throw water at you. Hopefully, they will invent a product before you shrivel and die. Think like a cactus!"

This product was available for four easy payments of $19.95. I would like a product that was available for three easy payments and one f-cking complicated payment. We can't tell you which payment it is, but one of these payments is going to be a b!tch. The mailman will get shot to death, the envelope will not seal, and the stamp will be in the wrong denomination. Good luck, f-cker! The last payment must be made in wampum!

Next section of The Talent Show coming tomorrow, where as previously mentioned I will run down the Protection and Holy trees and go over the talents available to a Ret Paladin and explain how they benefit (or do not benefit) Retribution.

I'm gathering opinions for my alt. I rolled an Orc Hunter last night just for kicks, played about 20 minutes in the starter zone and enjoyed having a bow in hand. When I played Guild Wars I was a Ranger specialized in Marksmanship, and I loved it, so playing a Hunter in Warcraft might be fun for me. I know BRK has all sorts of guides and posts on talents, leveling and Hunter shtuff, but I figured I'd inquire of the general public - is Beast Mastery the way to go for leveling a Hunter? Is there anything I need to know ahead of time about pet interaction and management? And if you were to roll a Hunter and plan on it being your one and only character on a PvP server, but didn't plan on being a hardcore raider (occasional 10-mans, some random PvP), what professions would you choose - straight gathering (skinning & herbing/mining), herb/alchemy, skinning/leatherworking, mining/engineering, or some other combination?

I'd personally go skinning/mining. Most of the good LW gear is BOE and mining is a GREAT tool to make money/prospect for gems last on in the game. However I dont know what WotLK will bring. . .

Beast Mastery is the only way to go while leveling. Its fantastic. My baby hunter alt is a wrecking machine with her pet. After playing a paladin so long its kind of bittersweet to have things practically drop dead at your feet just by thinking it.

Dumb overpowered hunters.
