Default Energizing Commerce

This shock SMG that I got from Assassin Mot in Southpaw Steam and Power has red text. it says "I have a Soldier, a Siren, two Scooters and a Claptrap."

What's so special about this gun?

Just read this and first thing that came to my mind: Solider=Penis, Siren=Slit?, Scooters=Balls, Claptrap=Butthole.
No ****.

I have a Soldier, a Siren, two Scooters and a Claptrap. Commerce: Unclear, possibly fast reload speed. Text is probably in reference to a statement made by former US Secretary of Interior James Watt. James Watt Also a reference from The Avengers movie. (Dropped by Assassin Wot in "Assassinate the Assassins")

Tried shooting it. I don't see anything special about it. the bullets sometimes create little lightning arcs where they hit but I'm not sure if that's it, that may be normal for electric weapons.

if it really is a reference to Watt, dropped from Wot and being an electric gun, I think it must have something to do with the electric damage. it's chance to shock is 10% and does 24 dps. it's a level 9 gun.

incidentally in this same run I got the Thre Dog shotgun. "because one barrel ain't enough, and two is too few." I bet at this point someone has already figured out what this one means.

Maybe the flavor text increases the duration of the electrocution effect?

Doesn't neccessarily need to be. The flavor text could be that it's an electric SMG every time. After all, it's only blue rarity.

Kinda like how the Hellfire, Hornet, Slagga, Thunderball Fists, and Volcano are the same element every time. I know they have added effects as well, but they're Legendary compared to the Commerce, which is Rare.

Maybe the secondary effect on the Commerce is high reload speed? I remember that the one on my Mech had decent reload speed.
