“LOOKS LIKE MEAT’S BACK ON THE MENU, BOYS" bellows the Orc to his Orc friends. Orcs know what menus are. Orcs know what restaurants are. are there bistros in Mordor? these are the questions i need answering
The use of a menu dates back to the Song dynasty in China (960-1279) and is a list items for consumption that are available. The word “menu” is French in origin and comes from the Latin word “minutus” (meaning something made small).
Given that Middle Earth has restaurants, food markets, and kitchens that offer a menu to the likes of Saruman in Isengard, it doesn’t seem far off that an Orc who speaks common (and probably raids these regularly) would know what a list of available food options is. Especially an Orc that has been living around Isengard and probably hearing such vernacular during his time posted.
Well also there’s a Goblin King, implying some level of structural society, and those caves run pretty damn deep. I don’t think it’s that much of a stretch to picture little eateries down there. Lil goblin cafés
By ALL FUCKING MEANS call people out on their problematic behaviour! Do not let that shit stand!
But do NOT do so by undercutting women
Stop using Iggy Azalea’s problematic behaviour as an excuse to pit her against Nicki Minaj in a perceived and unwanted rivalry simply because they’re both prominent female rappers.
Stop blaming fictional characters and their associated media for their creators flaws. Disney’s female character cookie cutter problem does not negate the positive effect their films have had on so many people. You are not a better person for having more of a connection to Wreck-It Ralph than you do to Frozen.
Stop resorting to cheap attacks against Lena Dunham’s appearance in response to Girls’ racial homogeny while simultaneously ignoring similar problems in so many male-led TV shows.
Stop reacting to problematic women as if it’s her gender that’s the issue at hand. Someone’s homophobia doesn’t give you a free pass to use gendered slurs towards them.
Stop confusing legitimate moral outrage with misogynistic abuse.
I’m loving Gotham but I’m not exactly optimistic about how it’s all gonna work.
Like, it’s all about Gordon trying to fix Gotham, but we know that’s not gonna happen until long after Bruce is Batman, so we’re not exactly gonna get much in the way of conflict resolution
And they’re gonna keep bringing in names we recognize, but that can only go so far before half of DC’s pantheon is either aged out of Batman’s timeline, or thrown to clog the show up with more children than anyone knows how to handle.
So I’m really not sure where they’re expecting to take this
