"And here's where I want you to turn on the Orc with the deadly Wizard Eye-Poke." /


Celebrimbor: "Pretty rings..."
Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."
Men: "Pretty rings..."
Sauron: "Mine's better."

"Ah, how ironic, the addictive qualities of Sauron’s master weapon led to its own destruction. Which just goes to show, kids - if you want two small and noble souls to succeed on a mission of dire importance... send an evil-minded beggar with them too." - Gandalf's Diaries, final par, by Ufthak.

"All hat, no worgen" /


Brother will fight brother and both be his slayer,
Brother and sister will violate all bonds of kinship;
Hard it will be in the world, there will be much failure of honor,
An age of axes, an age of swords, where shields are shattered,
An age of winds, an age of wolves, where the world comes crashing down;
No man will spare another.

You need the 'Moe' treatment. (3 Stooges)


''Sam put his ragged orc-cloak under his master's head, and covered them both with the grey robe of Lorien; and as he did so his thoughts went out to that fair land, and to the Elves, and he hoped that the cloth woven by their hands might have some virtue to keep them hidden beyond all hope in this wilderness of fear...But their luck held, and for the rest of that day they met no living or moving thing; and when night fell they vanished into the darkess of Mordor.'' - - -rotk, chapter III

Faerie contains many things besides elves and fays and besides dwarfs, witches, trolls, giants or dragons; it holds the seas, the sun, the moon, the sky; and the earth, and all things that are one in it: tree and bird, water and stone, wine and bread, and ourselves, mortal men, when we are enchanted."
— J.R.R. Tolkien

This reminds me of the the joke about the rabbi and the cardinal:

So a rabbi and his followers camp out on the Vatican property, and the Pope sends out a cardinal to tell them to leave. But the cardinal only speaks Italian and Latin, and the rabbi only speaks Yiddish and Hebrew, so they converse in sign language.

First the cardinal points upward.
The rabbi points downward.

The cardinal thinks about that, and then points a finger at the rabbi.
The rabbi points two fingers at the cardinal.

The cardinal thinks some more. He holds up his hand with the fingers all together.
The rabbi holds up a fist.

Hmmm. The cardinal takes out bread and wine.
The rabbi takes out an apple.

The cardinal goes back to the Pope and says, "I can't argue with him. The man is too brilliant. I had to let them stay. First I said "We are going to heaven." He said "Ah, but you might go to hell."
Then I said "We believe in one God." He said, "There is both good and evil in the world."
I said, "We are one people." He said, "But our community is more tightly-knit."
So I brought out the bread and wine, our most holy sacrament. And he brought out the apple, to remind me that we are all children of Adam. So I had to let them stay."

Meanwhile the rabbi goes back to his people to report.

"First he said, "You're going!" I said, "We're staying!"
Then he said "I'll poke out your eye!" I said, "I'll poke out both your eyes!"
Then he said, 'I'll slap your face!" I said, "I'll punch your nose!"
And then we had a little lunch and talked it over, and he decided we could stay."

Yes, I know Crocodile Dundee is Australian and PJ is a New Zealander, I was just referring to the hand gesture and facial expression.Wink
