It may be foolish for me to go up against these two great minds, but well, they’re dead. So, I shall disagree, on the basis of first-hand knowledge. I met a hobgoblin myself yesterday, and the only thing consistent about it was its consistency.
Not too firm. Not too soft. Not mushy exactly Jiggly. Gelatinous. A little bit runny around the edges. Imagine a pile of small brains, and you get the picture.
What I discovered was that hobgoblins are the consistency of little minds.
Care to contradict me? Well, have you ever actually seen a hobgoblin?
