Well, we were. But before video games were invented, we weren't brandishing Legend of Zelda Master Swords.
And we certainly weren't running into them either.
Thompson drew his Master Sword from its sheath, and poised to defend the castle that was his home, bellowing out to the said ex-husband that he wasn't welcome there. Said ex-husband charged at him and ran straight into the Master Sword, which was apparently one of those "replicas" that tread the line of "authentic".
This real-world LoZ tale didn't end here either. The ex-husband, sustaining injuries from walking into the pointy end of a Master Sword, smashed a pot over Thompson's head before he was taken to the hospital.
