Mists of Pandaria is hardly the first WoW expansion to embrace plenty of cheeky pop culture references, but it's the most recent one to do so. Of course, that's because it's the most recent expansion. It's all freaky coincidental like that. At any rate, grab yourself a steaming hot mug of iron...

Here's a little something to brighten up your Monday. Sharp-eyed tipster Aikiwoce spotted this dead ringer for a certain object that rhymes with "freighted D'Artagnan noob" outside the Stormwind gates, presumably as part of the "Love Is in the Air" holiday that kicked off today. I love Blizzard...
