"O Land of Our Conception"

Oh cabbage-heads soaked in rum!
On the blink, on the tum!
It's right, tight, put out the light!
Putty faces!
Oh grimaces
At this time of night!
Let me draw, paint, sculp
Your faces of pulp!
Oh gulp!
Put out the light!
Diabolically, divinely bright tight!
(from 'G-R-R-R-R-R!', 1916) ....

In J. R. R. Tolkien's fictional universe of Middle-earth, Mordor from Sindarin Black Land and Quenya Land of Shadow) was the region occupied and controlled by Sauron, in the southeast of northwestern Middle-earth to the East of Anduin, the great river. Orodruin, a volcano in Mordor, was the destination of the Fellowship of the Ring (and later Frodo Baggins and Sam Gamgee) in the quest to destroy the One Ring.. Mordor was unique because of the 3 enormous mountain ranges surrounding it, from the north, from the west and from the south.. The mountains both protected the land from an unexpected invasion by any of the people living in those directions and kept those living in Mordor from escaping. Tolkien was reported to have identified Mordor with the volcano of Stromboli off Sicily...

A significant geological feature of the volcano is the Sciara del Fuoco ("Stream of fire"), a big horseshoe-shaped depression generated in the last 13,000 years by several collapses on the northwestern side of the cone..2 kilometers to the northeast lies Strombolicchio, the volcanic plug remnant of the original volcano..Crowley's present day admirers see him as a white magician, but Crowley himself was not so sure about it. In the 1920s he wrote in his diary: "I may be a black magician but I'm bloody great one"..Squawk codes are 4-digit octal numbers; the dials on a transponder read from O to 7, inclusive. Thus the lowest possible squawk is 0000 and the highest is 7777..Air traffic control units use the term "squawk" when they are assigning an aircraft a transponder code, e.g., "Squawk 7421".. Squawk or squawking thus can be said to mean "select transponder code" or "I have selected transponder Code XXX"..Stated like this Mordor and Mount Doom appear to be symbols for Sicily..Stromboli is a type of turnover filled with various cheeses, typically mozzarella, Italian meats such as salami, capicola and bresaola or vegetables. The dough traditionally used is Italian Wheaties free bread dough...., would you enlighten the Sheriff please? State Trooper: Yessir. J.W., let me have a word with Ya.
