Okay, I'm gonna go all out and give you the TL;DR answer.

Mostly because he's an idiot. :P

In addition to that, though, like 90% of NPCs that spoke Thalassian in the game sounded like they didn't know the language. Granted neither did I, but I was always pretty sure they were doing it wrong, hence what I was talking about in this comic. "Belore" was always one of those words that stood out to me as funny when they pronounced it "Beh-low-ray", like Paris Hilton learning Spanish or something.

P.S. A lot of people have asked what was the deal with the "Sebulba" line in that old comic I linked (#139). I was hoping someone somewhere would get the joke, but I'm not sure anyone did. If you re-watch Star Wars Episode 1 sometime, and listen to Jake Lloyd failing at speaking a different language, it reminds me of Thalassian in wow. I swear what he says is essentially "Mango banana bonga fango jadango bango sebulba". Or something.

When I first read comic #139, I did notice the name Sebulba, but was never really sure what the Star Wars reference was for. I picked up on the idea you were making fun of the BE language, but the sebulba line threw me for a loop.

I still remember you making fun of Kael'thas in Tempest Keep when he said "belore." Good times.

Also, Krom's threat to demote Narya below Donald reminds me of when I had my own rank (the lowest) in Dark Legacy. :D

Edit: Actually, you may have been making fun of one of his guards. Master Engineer Telonicus says it on aggro.
