I learned something this past week: chameleons will grab anything you hand them. If you’ve ever seen a chameleon, then you know that they’ve got some cute feets, which are articulated enough to allow them to climb up impossibly thin branches and the like. They’re adorable as hell, too, and they just get even more so if you hand them tiny weapons.

I mean, look at this lovely, scaly cutie. I don’t know what quest they could possibly be going on, but if you’re sporting a short sword, a battle axe, and a sword that looks like it’s right out of Neon Genesis Evangelion, then you know they didn’t come to play. They came to do business, you know what I mean?

Anyway, now I’m wondering: Who sent this chameleon on this quest? What kind of retribution are they after? If they are indeed a karma chameleon, then what type of justice are they after? From which poor reptile (or mammal!) must it extract its pound of flesh?


Okay, yes. Yes to all of this.
