It looks like the dragons are safely back in their cages. Don't meddle in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy and taste good with ketchup.
Yes, it isn't original. I don't know where I first heard it, but I've always liked it.FirebenderDude2 wrote:That is actually a quote that I have heard at school before.
Gildor was silent for a moment. "I do not like this news," he said at last. "That Gandalf should be late, does not bode well. But it is said: Do not meddle in the affairs of Wizards, for they are subtle and quick to anger. The choice is yours: to go or wait."

I remember seeing it as a sig line in Usenet newsgroups in the early to mid nineties. It probably goes back a long time before that. Quick searches aren't doing me any good, because gazillions of people have used this line over the years.
-edit- In a Google groups search, the first case I find is from 1991, but that person is dropping it in as a quote rather than coining it themselves, I think. I won't link it as the post is from an adult forum.
