Hee hee! Yah, but not via text (that'd be too expensive for me as I'm not on the unlimited plan!). There was one guy who I shared the ice with in the mornings. He was in his late 60's and actually went to Nationals as an ice dancer way back when. A lot of women stayed the heck away from him . . . he was not only pompous and insulting, but sometimes he could be like a "dirty ol' man". I could handle him because I wouldn't let him get to me - and I'd be just as insulting back. So every time we saw each other, there'd be a warm up with a few rounds around the ice with him. He'd say stuff like "Here comes the old bag who thinks she can skate!" and I'd tell him he has no partner now because no one wants to skate with a mummy - hee hee. It was all in good fun.

Somehow I guessing from Smaug smoocher that you're saying Smoog instead of Smaug? :-) I've got an "au" in my internet nick on another website (a Tolkien website) and all my friends from there have problems saying it. Looking forward to the next film when they have to talk even more about the dragon *hehe* English people trying to say strang foreign diphtongs are always fun ;-) I've got a few friends I exchange insults for fun with. We had an exchange open on facecbook and some stupid woman thought we were having a fight ...

There's no w in Smaug :-) We have several in town actually, the Norwegian word smaug means narrow street (approx.) However, it's not usual to name streets smaug here, they're called veit instead, so when my geeky friends came to visit we didn't find any signs saying "smaug". Annoying. But we did take a picture of the God expedition on Hell.

I read Lord of the Rings decades ago so I think it is excusable that I got lost:) Actually I don't think I would have caught all the references even if I had finished reading the books last week! I did exchange insults with my friends for fun especially when we were younger, now it happens less often. For example we would poke harmless fun at each others' schools.

Hit space warp after middle earth.. I must admit that the exchange is entertaining just reading it. We do banter via text messages but I doubt you will understand since they are all in Chinese and Chinese dialects included. zao an....

For example: Good morning zao an (Chinese/Mandarin) zhou san (Chinese dialect - Cantonese) zha (Chinese dialect - Hokkien which is also used by Taiwanese majority) zha ki ho (Chinese dialect - Teochew) zhou! (Chinese dialect - Hakka) xie xie

Doom doom doom! Hahaha! This is hilarious! I got this experience but in chat with the closest friend I have. I keep on calling him names related to being fat and he's calling me names related to being thin. Haha! Afterwards, we began laughing and laughing and laughing how smart we are just saying synonyms. It was a good exercise of the brain and lungs. I should call him now! Thanks for the discussion.

I'm Galadriel I made it to the end of this post. I know some a-freakin'-mazing people who find a way to bring my Preciousss puns unto them, we mildly insult each other, but eventually we go, "Bruh, what are you even Tolkien about?", but then things become Merry again. As they say, old Hobbits die hard. To protect his identity I'll just call him A. Well he's like a big brother and perhaps that is why we keep having really punny conversations...but thru Facebook rather than texting because I don't have a mobile phone. :P Unfortunately, A hasn't read LOTR, but he has read GoT and I haven't read GoT but I've read LOTR. So we were having a conversation and I suddenly said "gamGEE, can you stop talking dude?" and hence started the war (this was a few months ago so I don't exactly remember all the puns :P). More recently, we had this electricity themed pun war. It started with "Are you working properly?", contained stuff like "don't be so conducting", and ended with "wire you trying to ruin my life? Let's just switch off this convo." We once had a conversation full of Shakespearean insults too.
