A Brazilian grandmother has been praying to a figurine from Lord of the Rings for years without realising.
The woman thought she was praying to Saint Anthony but it turns out the figure was Elmond, Lord of Rivendell.

Obviously placebo effect regardless of which action figure she was praying to, but Elrond's resume is far more impressive...

Suppose it does beg the question, if you were going to pray to a wot figurine, which would you pick? I'd go with either Mat or Moiraine.

I wouldn't mind "praying" to Berelain...

Isn't it obvious?

Lanfear most likely.

Lanfear most likely.

Have a taste for narcissistic sociopaths? I suppose you could just hope that the apple doesn't fall far from the tree, and worship Ivanka.

An interesting theological question resulting from this: would Saint Anthony have heard her prayers?

Ivanka.

Oh that Trump everywhere...

Added: Lanfear was better than any Trump by the way. Well until Moiraine killed her.
