I don't know who wrote that. Not me. I was abducted by aliens and they made me do things.

Still, quite symmetric; and also rhymes in both Quenya and (slant-rhymes in) English. Just don’t let Issac see. 😉

On the other hand, the Elves and Dwarves had great friendship in Eregion; this would be a more likely saying in Lothlórien. On yet another hand, perhaps not all were on board with the friendship or remember the Sacking of Menegroth too keenly...

+Robert Reynolds or this had nothing to do with friendship or enmity but with sexual habits (which were all just nasty rumours I am sure)

+Tamas Ferencz Ah: I’d interpreted puhtala as simply an insult rather than literally. As you say, merely nasty rumors without substance as may arise with two peoples in such close contact.
