#I Understood That Reference   Leave a comment

So there I am, on Sporcle.

Think maybe I’ll do a Harry Potter quiz, so I choose Literature.

Can’t find one I haven’t done lately, so I choose Lord of the Rings instead.

Choose the quiz, Can you name the top 50 characters in the Lord of the Rings series by number of mentions?

I’m going along, got about 30 out of 50 before I have to start thinking. Suddenly a name comes into my head. I type it in instantly. It’s wrong. I frown. I was sure it was a character. I can hear the words in my head. Suddenly I realize what the words are saying…

“Darmok and Jalad at Tanagra. Shaka, when the walls fell. Temba, his arms wide!”

“Picard and Dathon… at El-Adrel.”

I’m not even embarrassed….
