"Who the hell are you?" he growled.
"I the hell am Harry," I said.
He pulled out his own gym bag and slammed the car door closed. "You always a wiseass?"
"No. Sometimes I'm asleep."

..The land of long-forgotten name:
......no man may ever anchor near;
..No steering star his hope may aim,
......for nether Night its marches drear,
..And waters wide no sail may tame,
......with shores encircled dark and sheer.

..O! Haven where my heart would be!
......the waves beat upon thy bar
..For ever echo endlessly,
......when longing leads thy thought afar

Where's a bazooka and an Aelric pie when you need one? [In reply to] Can't Post

Trust you, Ufthak.

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 b*****d with them too." - Gandalf's Diaries, final par, by Ufthak.

haha... [In reply to] Can't Post

okay. I think I get the gist now, anyhow. But keep in mind, I rarely get jokes at all. Let alone jokes I have to be 'in' on.

I guess my version of an 'Aelric pie' would be 'come over here so I can slap you'...which is what I say to people who are teasing me. :-p

Now, I would know what an eelpout pie was.

A story of the First Age. [In reply to] Can't Post

In the Elder Days when Middle-earth was only books and rumors of moving pictures had not yet been heard by any save a few brave adventurers to the land of the Net, strange and wonderful beings inhabited the boards of TORN. One of these was Bullroarer the EVIL Overlord, he of the spiky boots and Julie Andrews obsession. He was ably assisted in administering his reign of humor terror by several underlings only slightly less mythic than himself. One of the greatest of these was Aelric, Steward of TORN, keeper of the Good Morning threads, he of the Highest Post Count and chief flinger of the Pies of EVIL. Any post incurring the groans of the EO would be dealt with by a swift pie thrown with deadly accuracy. Each pie was unique and horrible. Legend whispers of such ingredients as moldy avocado, bird beaks and dirty engine oil, all combined with ingenuity and imagination to create the maximum "EWWW!" reponse from its victim. And so was order maintained for many a day in the Land of TORN.

Laugh

Well, FYI [In reply to] Can't Post

Aelric is/was an old-time poster - he even predates *me*, which tells you something! He was known as the 'pie-man' for reasons I genuinely cannot recall other than his tendency to 'throw' 'pies' at people. I'm sure one of the other First Agers can tell you more.

"Who the hell are you?" he growled.
"I the hell am Harry," I said.
He pulled out his own gym bag and slammed the car door closed. "You always a wiseass?"
"No. Sometimes I'm asleep."

Yes indeed. [In reply to] Can't Post

I didn't have time to go into the forces of Chaotic Good which arrayed themselves against the EVIL hordes. Or, for that matter, to explain about bazookas, bagels, pop tarts, or cans of whale blubber. Or EVIL Quizzes. It was an EVIL Quiz which made me decide to read the Silmarillion, as I recall. I wish I had the time to put together and run an old-style quiz series. That would be fun.

that dry silicate stuff they put in with electronic equipment and, uh, sometimes shoes or clothes? The stuff that sucks the water up to keep everything else dry?

That.
