Return of a missing ring - Reward Notice

Post by Archived Topic » Fri Dec 28, 2001 2:41 am

Many years ago, I lost a gold - well, gold-coloured - ring. Plain, no stones - a mere worthless trifle. But of sentimental value. It was taken forcibly from me, by an armed assailant. He was accompanied by a large gang, and they were trespassing on my lands.
I am willing to reward handsomely any creature who brings me this lost heirloom. Just bring it to my home address -
Gorthaur, Penthouse Suite, Barad-Dur, Mordor

. . . One ring to rule them all
One ring to find them
One ring to bring them all
And in the darkness bind them
In the land of Mordor, where the shadows lie . . .

Hey Allen, why don't you just give it back to the poor fellow? He clearly misses it!

Bracegirdles are so dumb they couldn't tell Gorthaur from Children's Hour.

Mind you, if Gandalf had really been on the ball, he would have installed a firewall on the palantir as soon as he got hold of it.

So it's true, what they say about the English and Tolkien.

Well, Zachary, you were evidently too drunk to spell out your impression of what 'they' say. But if you meant that the English talk with their hands more than they used to, I would agree. Indeed, many a true word is spoken _en geste_.

Of course, the films are not absolutely faithful to the original story. But then neither were the books.
