"There are, too, elves in Mirkwood!"

When walking Milo yesterday he and I passed several boys (16 ish) playing tennis. They were your usual generic white suburban kids talking tough to one up each other. We continued our walk. On the way back we pass them again and overheard one retelling a recent conversation:

Him: There are, too, elves in Mirkwood!

Other: No there arn't. Only Rivendale has elves.

Him: Well, of course Rivendale has Elves you dumb ass. We are discussing Mirkwood!

Luckily, they did not see me and Milo grinning.
