Willow introduced Irika to Memes. ;)

From Irika:
Quote:
Bilbo, waiting for friends on mat, opening the door like a pop gun is different from you.

That would Gandalf when he arrived at Bag End behind Thorin and Bifur, Bofur and Bombur: "It is not like you, Bilbo, to keep friends waiting on the mat, and then open the door like a pop-gun!" (One of the odd anachronisms in The Hobbit, as I would not think that there are anything like "pop-guns" in Middle-earth.)

Your turn!

And yes, I also found the pop-gun remark curious but felt that it might refer to some kind of firecracker?

Middle English gunne, gonne, perhaps from a pet form of the Scandinavian name Gunnhildr, from gunnr + hildr, both meaning ‘war’.


Huh.

On a tangent but remember the [url]Moon Moon the Dumb Werewolf meme[/url]? I never knew Gunnhildr was War War, the Dumb Viking.

Oh! If possible, remember the shaft.

Nope! (Later than the episode in which Fingon rescues Maedhros.)

Mine shaft?

No, it is the kind of shaft that Frelga and Al were thinking.

Ah wait. I remember the approximate quote but not the speaker. "I would recall that shaft if I could" It was one of the sons of Fëanor IIRC?

Right quote. Wrong speaker and context.

No. But someone (not the speaker) did shoot at person of a different race.

I think someone was shooting at someone on horseback and accidentally killed/injured someone else? I know I could look this up, but its nagging at the edge of my brain...
