I came across an article on Cracked with the title "6 Ways World of Warcraft is Worse Than Real Life." Fair warning, the content covered is not always safe for work, so read at your own risk. The article is very negative but very funny. It also linked this animated guild application, which was and still is a feat of awesome.
One of my favorite quotes from the article was this, on how WoW is like job-hunting:
You know how during your first month in prison you want to find a gang to join, so somebody's got your back in case you get shanked in the yard? Well in World of Warcraft those gangs are called guilds.Yea, they went there.
It's not ret-related, but it's still a good laugh.
