*While playing Snot Splatter, I realized something about Meuka. He is a monstrous meerca said to eat "young Neopets that wander astray", and is made of snot. This makes him, as some people would call them, a [[{{ThingsThatGoBumpInTheNight}} "boogerman".]]

** Ghoti is 'fish' because English has strange pronunciation rules. If you take the sounds f i and she from the words lauGH wOmen and naTIon you get GH O TI

* Ghoti is a petpet based off of a fish. Ghoti in real life is pronounced "Fish" for some reason. Even though in Neopets, it's pronounced Goatee, the name still makes sense.

Added DiffLines:

** The censors are all messed up. In the Tombola game, there's something called a "booby prize", but anywhere else, "booby" is censored, [[SarcasmMode because no matter the context, booby is a sexual word.]]

* For the 2014 AprilFoolsDay prank, pets from the pound were randomly distributed among accounts for one day as foster pets. After the prank ended, [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming many users readopted one of their fosters]], only to discover to their horror through a simple calculator that those pets have been stuck in limbo [[AndIMustScream for seven, nine, sometimes twelve years]] or ''[[LongRunners even longer]]''. Many players who saw this simultaneously [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone thought twice about using the pound from then on]].

* Faeries need you to collect items for them because [[http://www.neopets.com/ntimes/index.phtml?section=559752&issue=635 the Shop Wizard won't help anyone on a faerie quest]].

* During the "Cyodrake's Gaze" plot, users are tasked with finding out who solving a mystery on the eponymous ship. Hoban, the ship's navigator, was shoved overboard and you need to answer a handful of questions regarding the incident. The final question is "Do you Like Hoban's Hat?" It seems odd until you realize that [[spoiler: the "correct" answer is yes and the prize for getting them all right is said hat.]]

Saying no is only "wrong" because you've effectively stated that you don't want the grand prize..]]
