No. Just, no.

Y'all, can we not? Look, I know where this particular path of "humor" leads, and really, I'd rather we not try to compare the mana bomb dropped on Theramore in a fantasy video game to Enola Gay and Little Boy, mmkay?

Unless, of course, The Daily Blink (I've no idea which of its two creators runs their Twitter) was intending to start a serious discussion on cultural appropriation and how horrific it would be if Blizzard was intending to draw a comparison between Theramore and Hiroshima/Nagasaki. (Hey, hey, leave me to my delusions, all right.)

For the record, I don't believe this is Blizzard's intent, and if it was, holy hell there is not enough booze for me to unpack all the shit wrong with that. Pandaria has enough problematic elements without that thrown into the mix.

0:45 mark = my life in WoW at the moment.

Mark my words, Time-Lost Proto Drake. You will be mine. You will. Be. Mine.
