Well, now the secret's totally ruined

Did you know that there are some rogue Moblins in Hyrule, just hanging out inside sealed caves waiting to give some dude rupees? This bizarre fixation with enclosure and charity is supposed to be a secret to everybody, but now Etsy's slothbot has let the cat out of the bag Moblin out of the cave. Way to go, slothbot.

In other crafting news, Kotaku reader Aaron revealed not so much of a secret as a new discovery: that a Mario mosaic table is probably the best thing ever and it is now probably impossible for the world to continue existing without one. Check after the break for the most exciting table picture ever.

That goblin is a lot nicer than all those assholes that take my rupees claiming I blew up their door! I never saw a "Welcome!" mat or door knob. I did them a favor by giving them a way out of their tombs!

I think I am missing something, because I do not get this blog post. Anyone care to explain it to the uninformed?

That cross-stitched panel is a screenshot from The Legend of Zelda. Certain hidden areas contained a Moblin who would tell you the above statement and give you money.

Also, table.

I know the Legend of Zelda reference. I didn't realize that it was woven by someone...just thought it was a screenshot and thus didn't get the point of it.

Anyways, what is a "slothbot"?

You have the username "Sonic_13", I don't think you needed to explain you were stupid.

If someone were ever to use that as a coffee table, I hope they never put the mug in the typical "Kintamario" position.
