Ginger: Whatcha doin?
Ruby: Playing a video game…
Ginger: Which one is this?
Ruby: Lego Lord of the Rings…hang on…
Ginger: Are we still going to the store?
Ruby: Let me just finish this level…
Ruby: It’s kinda hard to get Frodo and Samwise all the way through the Fire Swamp…
Ginger: …the what, now?
Ruby: The…y’know…Fire Swamp…
Ginger: Did Gollum learn the secrets from Buttercup and Westley?
Ginger: The Fire Swamp is in The Princess Bride.
Ruby: Oh. Yeah. Whatever.
Ginger: The Dead Marshes, on the other hand, have dead bodies. And is in The Lord of the Rings.
Ruby: Picky-picky. It’s not like it matters that much – this has fewer ROUS’s, I’ll grant you, but they’re both fictional swamplands.
Ginger: Yeah. I guess they’re all pretty much interchangeable.
Ginger: It’s too bad Atreyu never got through the Swamps of Sadness, since that Nazgûl swooped down on his winged creature thing and ate him up.
Ginger: If you get to mix up all the fictional swamps, why stop with just Tolkien and Morgenstern? Maybe Lloyd Alexander’s Taran got stuck in Norton Juster’s Doldrums.
Ginger: I guess that would mean Milo took a wrong turn and ended up in the Dead Marshes, since no one has actually visited there yet…
Ruby: I should have known better…
Ginger: And maybe Westley and Buttercup somehow managed to trip into the Bog of Eternal Stench…
Ruby: Really? Labyrinth got in here?
Ginger: And that would mean Sarah, Hoggle and Ludo actually stumbled into the Marshes of Morva, but receive assistance from Orddu, Orwen and Orgoch.
Ruby: You read way too many fantasy novels.
Ginger: At least I can keep them straight.
Ruby: I think it’s possible you missed a few.
Ginger: I have the whole car ride to remember and shuffle them around for you.
Ruby: Why did I offer to drive you to the store?
Ginger: Because I promise to not bring up the Portable Swamp the Weasley brothers brought forth?
Ruby: …oh, goody.
