    ‘Why can’t I have normal kids like everybody else?’ Peter thinks.

    @Bruno Zeigerts

    You mean Roger. Roger is the father and Peter is the older brother.

    Maybe he was referring to Peter Griffin.

    I’m surprised there’s even a toy store that SELLS inflatable Nazgul pool toys.

    Maybe they’re Balloonicorns in disguise.

    I was going to ask where from where “Nazgul” came. So hopefully I can be enlightened as well. Keeping in mind that I haven’t seen LotR, even though I own both the DVDs and the books. I did see the cartoon version of “The Hobbit” when I was a kid, so like 30+ years ago. Another book I own & have never read.

    Part of the poem about all the rings mentions that nine of them went to “mortal men doomed to die.” They became the nine Nazgul, and they serve Sauron,

    Their job is to find the one ring (which is the same one Frodo wants to destroy) that will allow Sauron to control all the other magic rings and their wearers.

    If you have read and seen LOTR you don’t need to be enlightened regarding Elvish. Not only do you know what it is, but you also know the scene they are talking about, why they need all the Nazguls in the water before the dad makes a splash, and what he could possibly say if he spoke Elvish before jumping in an making a big wave.

    Somehow they’re not as scary when they’re inflatable.

    It’s not really vital to know. The languages add to the depth and believability of the world Tolkien created, but you can enjoy the story without knowing what the translations are.

    But ‘Nazgûl’ isn’t from the Elvish. It’s the dark speech of Mordor, and means- literally- ‘ring wraith.’ The nearest I can find in Elvish, and I’m pretty sure it’s never used in the books, is ‘Úlair.’

    Wouldn’t have though the Nazgûl and their horses would so casually enter the pool, unless they thought the ring was on the other side.
