Doofus Of The Day #717

Today's award goes to CNN anchor Jonathan Mann, for this slip of the tongue.

Uh-huh.  And the hero of 'The Hobbit' is 'Dildo' Baggins.

I remember Dildo and Frito along with the wizard Goodgulf Greenteeth. Don't you?

One of the funnies books I have ever read: National Lampoon's "Bored of the Rings". The Orcish version of the "One Ring to rule them all" verse was rendered as:

Grundig Blaupunkt Luger Frug
Watusi Snarf Wazoo
Nixon Dirksen Nasahist
Rebozo Bugaloo.

You know you're old if you don't need to look up any of these.

I know them, but damn if that didn't read first like Vogon poetry!

And the hero of 'The Hobbit' is 'Dildo' Baggins."

I think that was "Dildo Bugger." (That I can remember this and not something useful is very sad.)

Who remembers the rest of the Ballad of the Green Toupées (We hardly need the strength of thirty / When we can win by fighting dirty) and the Narcs' hymn?

From the halls of Khazad-duma
To the shores of Lithui ...

Sigh, earbugged (ear-buggered?) again.

I'm pretty sure those have not yet been hunted to extinction. A renewable resource, perhaps?
