Annoyance at new feats

I'm a little annoyed by many of the new feats that came out in the
splatbooks, simply because they were not around when the MM and other
monster books came out, and there are some feats that certain monsters
should really have and would have been given (no doubt) had they existed
when they were written up. For example, most giants would have been
given Power Throw (from Complete Adventurer).

It's obvious why it happened, I'm just annoyed by it.

So, give it to them. If it makes them too strong, then gimp them slightly
somewhere else or raise their CR. Problem solved!

I wacky-parsed this as "If it makes them too strong, then grip them
slightly somewhere else".

Which is good advice.

Suddenly, drow, drunk as a lemur, stumbled out of the darkness and
exclaimed:
