No matter how cool you think this looks...

...The fans will always see this. Oh deer.

A PPC curse similar to "Flaming Denethor!" However, while "Flaming Denethor" is typically used as an exclamation of dismay, "Thranduil on a moose" is more of an expression of exasperation, equivalent to "for crying out loud!"

The term was coined by Neshomeh in a journal post on deviantART. It refers to the decision to put Thranduil on a moose during the prologue of Peter Jackson's film adaptation of The Hobbit.

Though it has since been pointed out that this may actually have been an Irish elk (which might lead to the variation "Thranduil on an elk!"), many fans of the book nonetheless found this... odd.
