doug*platypus has just left Hobbiton.

I'm sure that the blonde gene (b) would be recessive, and not the brown (B). So if both his parents were blonde, they would be "bb" and not "Bb", making it impossible for Legolas to have anything but "bb". Of course, it makes little difference since we know much less about his mum than we do about the Elf himsElf. I hope no geneticists see this. I'm sure this is a gross oversimplification that I learned in the dark ages before sheep cloning.

Nice pic btw. Maybe Agent Elrond can't stand the smell of Aragorn...
