There is no such thing as a vicious Tortoise. Mildly irritated maybe, but not vicious.

Interesting. Those are the specific weapons that I am most interested in conducting further research. 😉

Just goes to show you've never had to deal with a rabid one.

Now, what's with these "chest cannons"? Why, in my day, we were content with Cadillac bumper guards. Kids. Always wanting more and more...

Yes. Chest cannons on a boat are my preferred weapon of choice for any boating adventure. The bigger the better. I'd prefer always having them around. Never know exactly when you will need to get them out.

No, I think customs will notice them, don't you?

Is this considered camouflaged? Apparently, a lot of people can't find him hidden in a crowd.
