GollumSo, apparently Gollum monches on people. Even at the age of 9 I was clever enough to be thinking of ways to combine the words “chomp” and “munch” to get an overall frightening result, which is the “monch.” Because to be both chomped and munched upon is far worse of an experience than one.

Also, Gollum is very felxible on the spelling of his name, and is in fact, neither a he nor a she, but an it. The reasoning there was that I was not only referring to the Gollum of JRR Tolkien, and clearly giving a shout out to Jules Bass and Arthur Rankin whose works influenced me heavily as a child, but also to the idea of gollums in general.

The Bass/Rankin inspired Gollum also suffers from a rare disease known more commonly as No Bones in the Body, which leaves the entire body looking, and again, this is a technical term, Wiggily.

    “Yes, I’m relieved to know I’m not a GO-llum”
