Saint Elrond?
For years, a Brazilian woman has been using a small statue in her prayers which she thought was an image of one of her favorite saints: St. Anthony, patron saint of the poor, hopeless causes and lost articles. Her great granddaughter discovered that the figurine was not St. Anthony, but a 3" statuette of actor Hugo Weaving as Lord Elrond from Lord of the Rings. The statuette was eventually replaced with a real figure of St. Anthony.

Lord Elrond was described by J.R.R. Tolkien as, noble and fair as an Elf-Lord, as strong as a warrior, as wise as a wizard, as venerable as a king of dwarves, and as kind as summer. Clad in his elven robes and wearing a silver tressure across his forehead, Elrond does, in my opinion, possess a saintly appearance. Smile

In reality praying to one or the other made as much sense.

I shall write to Rome tomorrow.
St. Elrond sounds like he should be the patron saint of dildos.

Hummm. Maybe I'll convert to Legolaism too. Angel

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.
