faces, the globetrotter went on adhering to his adventures.

-- And I seen a man killed in Trieste by an Italian chap.
Knife in his back. Knife like that.

Whilst speaking he produced a dangerous looking clasp knife,
quite in keeping with his character, and held it in the
striking position.

-- In a knockingshop it was count of a tryon between two
smugglers. Fellow hid behind a door, come up behind him.
Like that. Prepare to meet your God, says he. Chuck! It
went into his back up to the butt.

I'm surprised nobody's revisited this idea yet.

I rate it fair. One reason is the obscure reference to Emeril that I didn't get until I searched for it. (Hint, not all of us come from North America.)

Also, I'm unsure as to why Chefly needed to be tinned, it might have been better if the wraithImmediately, though everything else remained as before, dim
and dark, the shapes became terribly clear. He was able to
see beneath their black wrappings. There were five tall
figures: two standing on the lip of the dell, three advancing.
In their white faces burned keen and merciless eyes; under
their mantles were long grey robes; upon their grey hairs
were helms of silver; in their haggard hands were swords of
steel. Their eyes fell on him and pierced him, as they
rushed towards him. Desperate, he drew his own sword, and
it seemed to him that it flickered red, as if it was a
firebrand. Two of the figures halted. The third was taller
than the others: his hair was long and gleaming and on his
helm was a crown. In one hand he held a long sword, and in
the other a knife; both the knife and the hand that held it
glowed with a pale light. He sprang forward and bore down
on Frodo.

". Umm, OK that makes more sense. I'll bump it to good, but a different celebrity chef might have made it excellent.

With regard to him being obscure and American, Wikipedia has this: "[Emeril] Lagasse was born in Fall River, Massachusetts to a Canadian Quebecois father, Emeril, and Portuguese mother, Hilda. He worked in a Portuguese bakery as a teenager ...". This makes him a citizen of the world! ;)

I see we're watching The Tin"You know salmon, Sarge," said Nobby.
"It is a fish of which I am aware, yes."
"You know they sell kind of slices of it in tins..."
"So I am given to understand, yes."
"Weell...how come all the tins are the same size? Salmon
gets thinner at both ends."

It's not the first time someone killed a person and cooked them. I would have eaten the meatSome hae meat and canna eat,
And some would eat that want it;
But we hae meat, and we can eat,
Sae let the Lord be thankit.
