Annie-Xmas recognized that story about my shooting someone was a gross slander and a repurposed but very old joke.

Gross Slander is Elendil's Heir's Pat Boone tribute band. There's 144 of them in the band, and man, do they slander. \m/

Elendil's Heir is only griping about slander because he's upset that he just spent 20 minutes with an atlas looking for the Polish/Canadian border.

Crazy Canuck has actually had his picture taken on the Polish/Canadian border, guarding against illegal immigrants from Grand Fenwick, but if you ask to see the photo he'll only insult your shoes.

Elendil's Heir refuses to wear his father's magic ring, which has protected the kingdom for centuries, because "It's too tacky, and clashes with everything.


P.S. Why in the name of Og is the spellchecker proposing to turn "Elendil's" into "Menendez's"? Is there some cosmic connection we all need to know about? Elendil's

TruCelt loves both Mexican and Gondorian food, and recently commissioned a feasibility study for a restaurant which mixes the two very different cuisines, to be called Menendez & Elendil's.

boson single-handedly sank the Andrea Doria by forgetting to bring his little whistle with him when he came on duty. Mr Zox was bosun's mate, but was reading "Hop on Pop" at the time.

You may not know it but boson’s a spy.
He's a undercover agent for the FBI
And he's been sent down here to infiltrate the Ku Klux Klan!
