The Feast Of Winter Veil

I hesitate to admit this, but one of my Christmas traditions that I've been keeping over the past three years involves World Of Warcraft. One of the in-game events,  the Feast of Winter Veil, coincides with the Christmas season. It involves a Santa Claus-like dwarf named Greatfather Winter who gives out presents for all the good little denizens of Azeroth.

Each year, the folks at Blizzard cook up some cool gifts for the WOW characters. Usually, they involve some sort of pet. The big gift this year is a BB gun. It's an official Red Rider carbine action 200 shot range model air rifle. After 200 shots, the thing is gone. You can use some of the shots at enemy kings and earn a special achievement. Seems like a long way to go to make a pop culture joke. I'm not impressed with the gun, and I'm pretty sure it's not a genuine Red Rider. I mean, the thing doesn't even have a compass in the stock.
