"Bah... Humbug"... mount? Oh! Wait a minute! I get it! It plays on the literal meaning of how Ebenezer Scrooge said in the old Christmas story, "A Christmas Carol", "Bah, humbug!"! It's hilarious! An amazing new charity mount with an accurate play on Ebenezer's phrase in the story!

Can't wait to see what other new surprises the 12 Days of the Spiral has in store for us!

Well, Trimond, I'm surprised that you didn't point out that a scorpion isn't a "bug"; but actually an arachnid.
However it is a goofy looking mount.

Actually,where I grew up any arthropods are called bugs.

When I was little,my dad used to call not only bees,flies,mosquitos etc. bugs,but

he also called spiders,scorpions,prawns,lobsters etc. bugs.

In fact,this one time,he even called a turtle a bug.

So,you can see that it's a really ambiguous word.It doesn't have to mean insect,or even an insect and arachnid.

Funny thing is,lesser crustacean,like the Daphnia don't count as bugs in his worldview.

I'm wondering why the Bah, Humbug! mount doesn't have a gumdrop or cork on it's stinger. The Armored Scorpion was protected from accidentally stinging its rider, why not this one?
