Visual Assignment: Spock Troll Quote

Woo, I am on a roll with these assignments! This time I chose the troll quote assignment, in which you choose an image of a well-known person, choose another well-known quote, and attribute the quote to someone else entirely. You can see the assignment here.

I started out by looking for quotes. I love the Harry Potter books, and they have tons of really great quotes. I saw this one by Albus Dumbledore that has always been one of my favorites:

“As much money and life as you could want!  The two things most human beings would choose above all – the trouble is, humans do have a knack of choosing precisely those things that are worst for them.

The last part of that quote immediately made me think of Spock from the original Star Trek series, it sounds exactly like something he’d say! So I dug around for a picture of Spock…

The quality wasn’t great so I uploaded it into GIMP and edited it by changing the hue and saturation, trying to make it less grainy.

Then I stuck the quote on, and was momentarily stymied as I tried to figure out who I could attribute it to. What non-human pointy-eared character has a tendency to say rather patronizing things about humans?… Ah, Legolas from Lord of the Rings! There’s enough people who haven’t seen either Star Trek or Lord of the Rings (truly, a tragedy) that someone totally oblivious may believe that the guy in the blue uniform against a background of computers is the elf Legolas…maybe?

So here it is in all its glory:
