Regarding the Orcs being bred from men, and it being a twist on Tolkien, IIRC in the LoTR mythos, Orcs and Goblins are interchangeable, and had at least three different origins, however the Uruk-Hai of Sauruman were implied to be a cross breading of Orc and Man, and to my mind at least Mr Nutt has more than a passing similarity to the Uruk-Hai. --Megahurts 09:26, 28 March 2010 (UTC)
