Alas, as amusing as my old sig was, it was too long, so I lay it to rest in both its forms, way too long and just too long, here:

Too long: Maedhros bent over his father's lifeless body and heard an echoing voice: "This elf will explode in 5...4321匓OOM!" And behold, the Sons of F隺nor were covered in a black dust and their father spontaneously burst into flame and disappeared entirely!" --from "Of F隺nor, the Exploding Elf"

and Way too long: "Maedhros bent over the lifeless body of his father and heard a small, echoing voice from deep within F隺nor's chest, as if Mandos himself spoke from afar: "This elf will explode in 5...4321匓OOM!" And behold, a great noise overcame the Sons of F隺nor, and they were covered in a black dust. They stood silent as their father spontaneously burst into flame and disappeared entirely!" --from the alternate Quenta Silmarillion, "Of F隺nor, the Exploding Elf"

And now for something completely different...

Cheers,
Lyta
