Now we all know that not all of the Orcs were killed in Mordor. Soooooooo..... Where. Are. They. Now?

My best guess.......The tax services.....

aka. fili orc-enshield
+++++++++++++++++++
the scene, as i understand it, is exceptionally well-written. fili (in sort of a callback to the scene with the eagles), calls out "thorRIIIIIIN!!!" just as he sees the pale orc veer in for the kill. he picks up the severed arm of an orc which is lying on the ground, swings it up in desperation, effectively blocking the pale orc's blow. and thus, forever after, fili is known as "fili orc-enshield."

this earns him deep respect from his hard-to-please uncle. as well as a hug. kili wipes his boots on the pale orc's glory box. -- maciliel telpemairo

According to an authoritative source (Wikipedia),

some of them went north to live in isolation on the Orkney Islands and took up respectable occupations such as farming and fishing. Also, they no longer identify strongly with lands to the south.


Quote
Orcadians

Main article: Orcadians
An Orcadian is a native of Orkney, a term that reflects a strongly held identity with a tradition of understatement.[140] Although the annexation of the earldom by Scotland took place over five centuries ago in 1472, most Orcadians regard themselves as Orcadians first and Scots second.[141]
When an Orcadian speaks of "Scotland", they are talking about the land to the immediate south of the Pentland Firth. When an Orcadian speaks of "the mainland", they mean Mainland, Orkney.[142] Tartan, clans, bagpipes and the like are traditions of the Scottish Highlands and are not a part of the islands' indigenous culture.[143] However, at least two tartans with Orkney connections have been registered and a tartan has been designed for Sanday by one of the island's residents,[144][145][146] and there are pipe bands in Orkney.[147][148]
Native Orcadians refer to the non-native residents of the islands as "ferry loupers", a term that has been in use for nearly two centuries at least.[149][Notes 23] This designation is celebrated in the Orkney Trout Fishing Association's "Ferryloupers Trophy", suggesting that although it can be used in a derogatory manner, it is more often a light-hearted expression.[150]

Although the thought of Uruk-hair cheerleaders is a sight to imagine... Has anyone tried to photoshop this?

Then again, they could have become sea monters. My Sunday crossword listed 'orc' as the answer to that hint. Guess Morgoth and Sauron went a little too far with that genetic engineering!

JRRT's Words

"But Orcs and Trolls spoke as they would, without love of words or things; and their language was actually more degraded and filthy than I have shown it. I do not suppose that any will wish for a closer rendering, though models are easy to find. Much the same sort of talk can still be heard among the orc-minded; dreary and repetitive with hatred and contempt, too long removed from good to retain even verbal vigour, save in the ears of those to whom only the squalid sounds strong. "

One of the defects in the Hobbit film is having Azog & Co. speaking (David Salo's implementation of) the Black Speech of Mordor. It is inconsistent with the Goblin-town denizens (and the Lord of the Rings film orcs) in the first place, not in keeping with Tolkien's characterization of orc-speech in the second place, and distances us from the dialogue dramatically (due to subtitling) in the third place.

Practicing politics in our legislatures

 ...by introducing bills for Orc-barrel spending in their districts, while demonizing Orc-barrel spending in other districts.

R_T, I was wondering

how Ruxendil_ Thoorg could have passed up a thread called "What are the orcs doing now?". Very glad to see Your Lorcuaciousness join us and add to the silliness.

Thanks for your concern, dear Liss! Yeah, unfortunately I arrived as a straggler to the orc-casion.

Lorcuaciousness, hehe! Laugh. I'm glad not to have missed out on the j-orc-ularity! Wink

If he wishes to earn his year-end bonus,
Must manage somehow to get through,
More dirty work than ever I do!"

agent to producer: "Hey, do I got an act for you!...."

"....It starts off with a family of Orcs... they...(something describable only in Black Speech)... and then the kids.... (something only comprehensible in specific dialect of Orcish too disturbing to be expressed in Black Speech).... then the dad.... (in a pig-Latin-esque variation of Black Speech in mockery of Quenya called pig-Quenya, with syntax derived from Trollish cockney )... the end."

(Shocked silence, followed by:)

"What's the act called?"

(Agent's excited reply:)


"...the Arist-Orc-crats!"


Apologies in advance.

It is a glorious thing

To be a goblin king!


They that go down to the sea in ships, that do business in great waters; These see the works of the Lord, and His wonders in the deep.

Do ye think any of 'em are speakin' Pirate lingo? //

 

Is there a Tolkien topic that you have wanted to look into more deeply, and write about your thoughts on it? If so, we'd like to hear from you for the next TORn Amateur Symposium- coming in November. Happy writing!
