Naughty Nazgul

My seven-year-old son asked me some questions the other day that showed a strong sense of morality and analogous thinking (and made me laugh, too).

He started with the premise that we should always wear helmets when we ride our bicycles. "Okay"

He then asked if horseback riding was like bicycling in that we should also wear helmets. "Sure"

He then bought up something that he noticed watching Lord of the Rings... the Nazgul did not wear helmets when they rode their, well, whatever they ride. "That's true." At that he shook his head in disapproval.

So... in addition to be servants of the dark lord, the Nazbul are also naughty.

Awww... that's so cute.

Somehow, it reminds me of the Monty Python scene where the Grim Reaper shows up at a British dinner party, out in a country estate.

When the hostess (Eric Idle in drag) opens the door, she says, "Oh look, it's one of the little men from the village).

They then try to be polite to him. He says he's the Grim Reaper, they ask him if he's been doing much reaping lately.

The hostess hands him a glass of wine, he breaks it... she replies, curtly, "Would you like white?"

Floyd has quite the gift for bringing things into practical everyday light.

That clip from MP sounds really funny...
