Fried spider... [In reply to] Can't Post

Perhaps I could feel pity for her.Crazy

Totally, Balrog [In reply to] Can't Post

My guess is the Balrog. [In reply to] Can't Post

I might say Shelob if the Balrog actually had flesh but how in Middle Earth would that work on fire. What would the chemical reaction be to her venom? Or would there be one? Idk, but that's a good question macfalk!

Roast chicken?!

You're taller. Who? You. Then what? Then me! I've always been taller than you. Pippin, everyone knows you're the short one. I'm the tall one. Please Merry. Your what? Three foot six at the most. Whereas I'm pushing three seven. Three eight! Three foot eight! You did something.

It's Latin. Loosely translated, it means... we cheat.

"Strange treasures in this fair world appear, strange all, and new to me." That is a poem by Thomas Traherne and I have absolutely no idea what it's about. But, when I was small I was made to learn it by heart so I don't see why you shouldn't suffer too.

Yeah. Balrog would win for sure...// [In reply to] Can't Post

 

Bustin' makes me feel good!!

I do believe if our honorable friend continues to scrape the bottom of the barrel for objections he is in danger of getting splinters under his fingernails.

Have you heard nothing of the stubbornness of dwarves and their elf
instigators?

Balrog [In reply to] Can't Post

Due to sheer size and power. Shelob has her weapons, but the Balrog is bigger, and Shelob is so...squishy. Besides, Shelob doesn't particularly care for light and doesn't the Balrog have a fiery whip? It'd be Crispy Spider Barbecue Hoedown Time down on the Balrog homestead. Bring the kids. There'll be a cakewalk and a sack race.

Absolutely seeing fried spider here [In reply to] Can't Post

but being in such a pitiable state I may also feel sorry for her--whilst running for my life to escape the Balrog...
