Funny observations from my students Can't Post

As those of you who have been around may remember, I teach a three-week long course on LOTR (book and movies) during our high school's Interim Term in January. My students sometimes come up with some funny things or odd ideas. Here are a few samples!

There are of course some misspellings, starting with simple things like Rivendale and Aragon, but moving on to Aeowin (which girl is that again?), Sauroman (which bad guy is that?), and my favorite, Isidoor.

Some movie comments
"Frodo slept so long it's morning?" (on his vision of Galadriel after being stabbed by Shelob)
"So the Witch-king is like a balloon?" (on the implosion of his helmet)

And on the book
"This has to do with Aragorn's claim as King of Mordor." What's the status of Mordor after the War of the Ring anyway?
"Tom is in hiding at the Council of Elrond." Bombadil really gets around, doesn't he?
"Sam is very different from the warrior heroes like Aragorn and Boromir. One of his most heroic deeds is fighting Shelob."
"Boromir was spartan because he never married."
"Lord of the Rings is a massive compilation of stories from everyday lives." That student must have a much more interesting life than I do!
"The family of Boromir, Denethor, and Faramir is a very typical one, dealing with the sorts of problems that many families face."
