Dwarf tossingEdit

Regarding the Real Life section, who says that the UK, Australia and New Zealand are 'less civilized' than the United States? A bit biased, isn't it?! 'Dwarf-tossing' is not quite so widespread, and the actions of a few hooligans shouldn't reflect that of a whole country. --Fenrir51 (talk) 22:39, August 11, 2013 (UTC)

Becuase dwarf-tossing is rare in the USA, to the point that it's not even jokingly heard about on TV. Randomly attack a person with dwarfism and throw them about? That is barbaric. This sort of hooliganing is widespread around the football circuit.
....I was joking, I explicitly wanted to see how long it would take someone to notice that I put that in there. Though I still think it's barbaric. Sorry, this is the high school me from 15 years ago wondering "what the heck is Gimli saying about 'no one tosses a dwarf'?" Really, I was specifically waiting for this moment now that you've pointed it out, I'm surprised it even took someone this long to notice. :) Sorry, I'll fix it.--The Dragon Demands (talk) 23:02, August 11, 2013 (UTC)

I'm not arguing over whether or not "dwarf-tossing" is barbaric, just that not everyone in the UK or elsewhere does it, anymore than everyone is a football hooligan. Hooligans ruin football for the rest of the fans. These criminals are the minority. Just as those idiots would likely have been arrested for assault for hurling that fella around for shits and giggles. I used to know a woman with dwarfism who was an employment advisor some years back.

And as for it taking notice of it, I've not had internet access for about a week, so I only first saw it yesterday.Fenrir51 (talk) 10:47, August 12, 2013 (UTC)

Again, I made a joking remark to see how many minutes it would take someone else to notice, but was surprised that it took over a day.--The Dragon Demands (talk) 14:40, August 12, 2013 (UTC)

Season 4Edit

Good news: a casting agency that specializes in dwarf stunt actors mentioned that four of its members will be filming for Season 4: [1] I wrote this Dwarfs page last week in the hope that they're going to include Oppo and Penny in Season 4. Whether or not my dream-casting Warwick Davis as Oppo (more of a cameo) will occur, remains to be seen.--The Dragon Demands (talk) 02:42, September 9, 2013 (UTC)
