Sword Memes, the best kind of memes!

In today's post we thought it would be fun to share. some of our favorite sword comedy memes with you. Does this accomplish our marketing and sales goals via social media interaction? No. That is why we have shamelessly interspersed them with pictures of our swords, that just happened to be linked to the item pages. Thus we get to spread some sword humor love and can rationalize it when challenged.
