      The nonsense Tengwar one gets by either simply changing the font, or
      happily typing out words on one's keyboard thinking that the font actually
      matches the Roman letters, I often think of as "The Mode of Boloneyland".

      Boloneyland is the, ahem, equivalent of _Beleriand_ in Richard Drushel's
      clever parody of the LotR Appendices:
