Dazed and confused? Not me. I’m just Lost in the Cheese Aisle.

Among the most powerful beings of Middle-Earth were the wizards.

They were the Maiar, sent by the Valar to help Men in their struggle against Sauron; though their outward appearance was human, they possessed much greater abilities.

Among them were Gandalf the Grey, Saruman the White, the Blue Wizards Allatar and Pallando, and Radagast the Brown.

Radagast grumbled. “Brown. I hate brown. Just because I control beasts, why must my robes look like their shit?”

When a new wizard appeared offering to take over Radagast’s color, he was quick to agree. “And you are…?”

“Cerumen’s my name. Earwax’s my game.”

Thank you for that fanciful trip into The Silly-marillion.

And do not forget Maiar the Smith, who ironically sells insurance and does not shoe horses.

I would expect a blacksmith to be ironic... just as I would expect a goldsmith to have an aural fixation.

Not bad, Elisson. . . not bad at all. Ouch.
