Eowyn Kills the Witch King

Description: The Witch King, from Lord of the Rings, in the battle of pelennor fields.

Witch King: "You fool. No man can kill me. Die now."

Eowyn: "I am no man!"

John Locke: "Whoa whoa whoa, time out. That's clearly not what he meant."

Roland Barthes: "Wrong, Locke! He is merely quoting a prophecy, and any interpretation is equally valid. The author's original intent is irrelevant when analyzing a text."

John Locke: "Language is a representation of the ideas of the speaker, and he obviously meant “no human can kill me.”"

Locke: "Enough of your relativism, Barthes, you can't beat a prophesy with a pun!"
Barthes: "Says who?"
Locke: "The prophet!"
Barthes: "Once a prophecy exists the prophet is only one of many interpreters!"

Eowyn: "Enough! I don't care. I was just trying to say something badass before killing him."

Description: Eowyn stabs the Witch King in the face, killing him.

Barthes: "Is it just me, or was he a bit overconfident that no man could kill him when he can die from getting stabbed in the face?"
Eowyn: "Yeah, i was a bit surprised that was all it took to be honest."
"I never expected someone would try to...stab me."
