Considered an artform, hobgoblin-ing is the process by which a fake social congregation intending to rendezvous at an unpopular pub is invented promising the presence of a Phil Andrews or any given ginger, who is currently out of the country. Only the most reclusive and gullible individuals of a social group will actually ask when or actually turn up to the event, which they later find to be non-existent. The said individual is said to be Hobgoblin'd - laughter at the idiot's expense ensues.

The origins stem from the Great Hobgoblin'ing of 2009, in which the social-phobic Glassy asked what time to turn up to a non-existent gathering at the Hobgoblin pub.
Glassy - Hi guys! What time is everyone getting to the Hobgoblin for?

Everyone else - ... HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA - standard Hobgoblin-ing response
