Posted by: Jambo / 4:59 PM

Libby Mae found this quiz courtesy of McSweeney's (which also has the answers) and thought it was perfecct for geeks like me and Jerjo. (I missed two, by the way, and don't think either of them were quite fair.)

Not bad considering you don't have an IKEA within 200 miles of you. My objection was that of the two I got wrong one was only in the movies and not the books and the other was only in the Silmirilian, which I have never managed ot slog thru.

Excellent quiz - happy to say I aced it but I was a little shaky on Grimbold.

I won't hold it against you Jambo. But I am still not forgetting that you were the one that stood up in your cube and asked what the name of the giant statutes in FOTR was.
