Have you guys seen the Boromir Meme? I always chuckle when I see it.
According to Know Your Meme:
The phrase “One does not simply walk into Mordor” (no comma needed) originates from a Council of Elrond scene in Peter Jackson’s 2001 film adaption of J.R.R. Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring. Whilst (sp) discussing how to destroy the ring, Elrond explains that the ring can only be destroyed at Mount Doom and that someone must venture into Mordor to do so. After a silence where no member volunteers, Boromir points out the difficulty of this task by saying “One does not simply walk into Mordor.”
I can’t help but think of diabetes related stuff when I see these.
So many of the simple things in life that many people take for granted. Eating, sleeping, exercising. With diabetes, we do, indeed, walk into Mordor every single day.
What others do you guys have? Has this been done before?
“If the rest of the world understood the inability to actually control this disease, I think we would get a little more empathy and little less blame thrown our way.”— George Simmons, The B.A.D. Blog
