I figured out what a grue looks like in the Infocom text adventures. This is a bit from Sorcerer, set in the Zork world. Important parts are bolded. Not much info, but our current pictures work well.

There's a flash of light nearby, and you glimpse a horrible, multi-fanged creature, a look of sheer terror on its face. It charges away, gurgling in agony, tearing at its glowing fur.

Marshal Uncyclopedian! Talk to me!

So in other words, something like this?:

You're all wrong

Has it ever occured to you that a Grue might not be a furry little creature at all, but instead a hidden archipelago home to Gardens straight from HELL ITSELF?? --Littleboyonly.jpg TKFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK Oldmanonly.jpg 23:37, 4 August 2007 (UTC)

No. No it hasn't. --Strange.PNG (but) Untrue  Whhhy?Whut?How? *Back from the dead* 00:11, 5 August 2007 (UTC)

Does it look like I give a flying fuck? --Littleboyonly.jpg TKFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK Oldmanonly.jpg 00:41, 5 August 2007 (UTC)

I do. Just hold still. Also, I need a running start. And a canned ham. That last part is for later. I may be hungry by then. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 02:08, 5 August 2007 (UTC)
