The Lothlorien Foundation,
Behind the Water Pipes,
And we will assign to you your own personal Ring-Bearer, passing on the
GOOD NEWS when he drops the ring down the Cracks of Doom, (or the
BAD NEWS when he gets himself tortured to death by Sauron.) Either way,

WE ARE FORTUNATE NOT TO HAVE THIS DOOM LAID UPON
NOW WE CAN HELP OTHERS WHO HAVE...
