Well spotted, I wondered if anyone would notice. For anyone who has not already seen it, here is his society.

Hah!

I was kind of expecting a mention of rabid boars somewhere in there.

I agree, a review must be in order, I'm sure a lot of Tolkein info has come to light since the last update, though the rabid boars that Chrisofylofax Tolkein rears to guard his fortress is confirmed and should be included.

Nasty, that - being caught by the; well, never mind..
