And Banazir shall show them the meaning of CHOKLIT
CHOKLIT sonds like some Ukranian cheap imitation of chocolate, made from potatos.
Wot wot?
Bite yer tongue, sir!
Here (hands twinbee a small piece of CHOKLIT)... now tell me it's a cheep Ukrainian imitation.

(Adn wot's rong with taters?)

Seriously, I think the etymology of CHOKLIT dates bax further than alt.fan.tolkien, perhaps to alt.fan.dragons and alt.books.m-lackey.

I think you want:

Omnia vincit amor incolarum cavernarum

You said:
Love of concave(incorrect number) residents conquers all things.

This post was brought to you by the letter "2" and the number "b".

Er, ni.
That rilly is supposed to be a double genitive (first declension plural genitive of incola). The second genitive is supposed to be of cavum.
Am I getting warmer?
