I don’t care too much for money

And here we have the first appearance of Conquest’s mail-order bride, who’s currently unnamed. We’ve considered making her a regular character; time will tell on that one. I suppose the unspoken half of this joke is that wherever the heck the horsemen have come from, they’re not used to having the wonderful click-driven purchasing power that we enjoy so freely, so they go on a spending spree.

Following this incident, UPS, FedEx and the USPS add “mythological beasts” to their guidelines on what constitutes a “hazardous material” and cannot be shipped. DHL, on the other hand, will gladly mail a manticore to whatever address to desire, but make no guarantees as to its condition upon arrival.
