Peter Jackson make CHANGES???? Noble characters being portrayed as bumbling fools??? Perish the thought. It's a known fact that Tolkien's story just didn't cut was poorly plotted and charactered and just could NOT be brought to screen as originally written. Jackson was not only correct in making those changes, he was ETHICALLY COMPELLED to do it.

At least that's what the one lunatic PJ fan at IMDB said in his 5-page reply to my question as to why Jackson couldn't include the dialogue "I am the Mouth of Sauron" in the film. Apparently that line (and all the other puzzling changes) were not only justified, they were absolutely REQUIRED. Tolkien's story NEEDED those changes.

The fark is, this guy wasn't trolling me. He was 100% serious.

News flash for those who have never read the novels:

There is not a single word related to "Dwarf tossing" in Tolkien's story.

2. A person given to clowning and joking.
3. A ludicrous or bumbling person; a fool.

--- [ image 536x364]

--- "A ship has one bridge! ONE BRIDGE!! ONE RIKER!! ONE BRIDGE!!! grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr"

--- Warning the captain "my thoughts were of a gigantic black space creature that devours entire vessels" Picard rolls his eyes then in a patronizing/condescending tone " Will you just launch another probe" *and implied "stfu"*

--- Growling and showing his teeth at too many characters to list.

--- Trying to sneak up on and tackle/grab an Omniscient & omnipotent being
(1) how do you "sneak up on" one who knows all?
(2) what are you going to do once you have your hands on this omnipotent critter?

--- Almost w/o fail when he gives a recommendation / suggestion, he is denied (often accompanied by eye rolling) and the opposite path is chosen.

He was the bridge jester, fool, .... buffoon.
