Gandalf The Chancer

My current job has some good points. Sometimes I get serenaded and today I was treated to a one-man dramatisation of an entire chapter of 'The Lord of the Rings' words and actions.

And sometimes I come across real life interpretations of the balcony scene from 'Romeo & Juliet'. Yes. Occasionally when the weather is warm and sunny and everyone is in a good mood my job is just fine.

Just the one person then giving his opinion on axes versus hatchets. A hatchet is better you see because you don't have to swing it so hard. I think he was talking about chopping wood.

Oh, was it the chapter where tens of thousands of semi-evolved mutants storm the walls and put everyone to the sword? Because I hear that that happens all the time in Ballymena...

No it was the one where they had to lay down their weapons but Gandalf got to keep his staff with him on grounds of his age.

The semi-evolved mutants were a bit restless over the weekend but they did not storm the buildings. Maybe tonight....

You know what I watched last night? A Paramount comedy show called Badly Dubbed Porn, which featured Two Hobbits and a Ringpiece, and starred a Gandalf character dubbed into Geldof. Feckin' brilliant. He fought Bono to the death too.

Fighting Bono? To the death? And why wasn't this primetime RTE?
