Murlocs <=> Morlocks

Just an FYI for those who were as in the dark as me - I was surfing around the internet and was looking at this post of artist M.S. Corley's depiction of horror characters in literature. I saw a "Morlock" and by picture and by name it reminded me of a murloc. I have to admit not knowing where this creature was from and had to rely on my good friend wikipedia to tell me what they were.

Here's the first paragraph:

Morlocks are a fictional species created by H. G. Wells for his 1895 novel, The Time Machine. They dwell underground in the English countryside of A.D. 802,701 in a troglodyte civilization, maintaining ancient machines that they may or may not remember how to build. Their only access to the surface world is through a series of well structures that dot the countryside of future England.

That's what I get for watching Malcolm McDowell and not reading the book. For a flurry of furry Morlocks check out this Google image search. And apologies to all who are slapping their heads right now saying 'no duh, welcome to the party.'
