Re: 1087: "Cirith Ungol"

One morning, I killed a hobbit wearing my ring of power. How he got my ring of power, I don't know. I don't think this is technically ambiguous. He must have been a pretty animated corpse to get your ring of power after you killed him. I read about that in his hobbit-uary. How is the family doi...

Inner monologue while viewing this comic: "Is there just one person talking? Oh it's a thought bubble. I wonder if there is a reference to an older comic. I know that there is a few about parties. Oh wait I'm drifting. O.k. so this one seems to be about a party. Are there any physics references...

Re: 1087: "Cirith Ungol"

For this particular comic, the only thing you need to know about Cirith Ungol is that it is referring to the pass where Frodo encountered the spider in the LOTR trilogy. But suppose the person asking needed something more specific - there have been like three separate answers offered here: It's the...
