Too funny not to read, and a bit of truth

I read this today.

Help request for the lore-less DM. (D&D stuff)

 So i've recently spent half a hundred dollars on the Princes of the Apocalypse book, and would quite like to get some use out of it before something newer comes out and it gets harder to find players. (It should be mentioned before i get too far into minutia, that all my games are online.)
Anyway, my problem is that i've rapidly grown tired of Forgotten Realms. And i've definitely gotten tired of hearing about how the third son of a dead god decreed that every second toothbrush is magical on the sixth hour of every tenday in which a man named Gerald says the word "booger". That's an exaggeration of course, but probably not as much as you think! Having to do ASoIaF-levels of research every time i want to make up my own hook into a FR adventure is getting old, real quick.

Which got me to thinking, what I know about the Forgotten Realms ends at 2nd edition, minus a few books here and there.  Had a good laugh at the above, but it makes you realize unless you swallow the blue pill and buy everything that is out there, its hard to know all the "arcana".
