Elrond: I have given this alot of thought, and decided the ring-bearer should be this here adventurous Elf! He has fought evil from Ered Luin to our very own city of Rivendell. He has defeated the great Gaunt Lords of the Barrow Downs, fought through the foul pools of Garth Agarwen, braved the northern icy wastes of Forochel, slain great dragons in the fortress of Helegrod, defeated Amarthiel in Eregion, and has farmed the Library and School of Eregion more times than he cares to recount! He will be perfect for the job.
What? He's busy with previous arrangements with his kinship in Annuminas? Well then, any other volunteers?
Frodo: Well, I guess I'll... *Boromir interrupts*
Boromir: Oh, oh, oh, I'll volunteer! The strength of the men of Gondor will prevail!
Elrond: I got a bad feeling about this...but Boromir, I will give you the responsibility of bearing the Ring.
