Saint Attilas Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch Mk.VIII

#18 of the February daily picture run.
Check out the complete series:…

Behold Sinners!
I proudly present you Saint Attilas Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch Mark VIII!

"...And Saint Attila raised the hand grenade up on high, saying, "O LORD, bless this Thy hand grenade that with it Thou mayest blow Thine enemies to tiny bits, in Thy mercy." And the LORD did grin and the people did feast upon the lambs and sloths and carp and anchovies and orangutans and breakfast cereals, and fruit bats and large chu... [At this point, the friar is urged by Brother Maynard to "skip a bit, brother"]... And the LORD spake, saying, "First shalt thou take out the Holy Pin, then shalt thou count to three, no more, no less. Three shall be the number thou shalt count, and the number of the counting shall be three. Four shalt thou not count, neither count thou two, excepting that thou then proceed to three. Five is right out. Once the number three, being the third number, be reached, then lobbest thou thy Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch towards thy foe, who being naughty in My sight, shall snuff it."

This is the Mark VIII version of the fabled Mark I Holy Hand Grenade, the LORD himself provided to Saint Attila and which rescued King Arthur and his noble knights of the round table from the Killer Rabbit of Caerbannog.
Besides being crowned with ruby crosses, the Mark VIII is blessed with a holy gold coin portraying Sanctus Attila himself beneath the bottom surrounded by a sunglare of further rubies.
The idol was handsculpted and cast in metal after this antique medal…
