The Saucepan Man has been trapped in the Barrow!
The Eye

There is at least one Orcish chieftain we know of that could write: Azog. When he captured and slew Thrór, he branded his hewn head with his own name, written in Dwarvish runes.

This might support the point that Cúdae mentioned earlier about the Moria Orcs possibly being influenced by the remnants of Dwarvish culture there.
Do you mind? I'm busy doing the fishstick. It's a very delicate state of mind!
