Lovecraft, H.P. Easter Egg - Lovecraft's Revenge
In 1923, English author Walter de la Mare parodied HP Lovecraft in a story called "The Creatures." Several months later, Lovecraft released the story "Rats in the Walls" narrated by a character much like Lovecraft himself. This character goes insane, kills, and eats an annoying neighbor named de la Poer. This name is a double pun; poer is very similar to the French word for pig: porc (English pork). "Mare" in Old English is "a creature that brings fear or terror," where we get the term "nightmare." "Poer" means "fear" in French.
