Entering the Realm of Slapstick Lord of the Rings

Scene: Children with foam swords, all damaged from previous over-use.

Boy, racing into the room: "Anduril!"
He brandishes a sword, which promptly falls apart. He exclaims, "Narsil!"

What a geeky parent's delight!

Footnote, for those who are less obsessive about fantasy fiction: Narsil is the Blade-That-Was-Broken in the LOTR flashback, and Anduril is the repaired version that Aragon takes to battle.

Pretty deep, nice sense of humor.
