DSLRs can look like some intimidating weaponry at the best of times, and this humorous mock battle pulls fun at the the battlesque forms of this creative tool. It also brings up a theme that has lingered through creativity since ages ago. Didn't a whole pile of painters pose with their brushes as the sword? Jacqueline Fahey, for example (couldn't find it on the web but it does exist! - brush posing as sword, palette posing as shield). They use their creative flair as fuel for whatever purpose they think is worthy of defending or, on the flip-side, shredding to pieces. Writers warble on about their pens being mightier than swords (which sounds slightly arrogant/derogatory hah). It's really only the amount of effort we put behind our actions that any such tool can become the most effective tools of an allusion war.
