Praise the Lord, but dump the Lourdes’

This is the kind of thing that cracks me up, then gives me the ol’ “The world has lost its damn mind” curmudgeon rant. At least the travelers were warned, but did they really think there would be an exception...

Including the energon axe!

I feel horrible for wanting this, but I absolutely do and may very well buy it. Not because it speaks or has a display stand or anything. it’s the axe. For the geeks in the audience, y’all remember the axe...
