Hugo's Weaving Manual
Mr. Adventurer... it seems that you have been living two lives. In one, you're a peaceful, furry-footed midget living in an idyllic pastoral setting. In the other, you're on an epic quest to save the Kingdom from an evil sorceress. One of these lives, Mr. Adventurer, has a future, and one does not. I suggest you forget your quest and concentrate on being the one adventurer to bind these palm fronds. They will unite or they will fall.

- This item is a reference to Hugo Weaving, who played both Agent Smith in the Matrix trilogy and Elrond in the Lord of the Rings movies.
- Also, Hugo Weaving appeared in the Australian film The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert, which involved a lot of desert references.
- The item description is one big Lord of the Rings reference, also being an adapted version of one of Hugo Weaving's lines as Elrond. If you replace "Furry-footed midget" with Hobbit, "evil sorceress" with Sauron, and "palm fronds" with "rings", then it all makes sense.
- Much of the actual text in the item description is based on a monologue Agent Smith delivers to Keanu Reeves in "The Matrix", replacing "Mr. Anderson" with "Mr. Adventurer".
