Woman has been praying to a Lord of the Rings doll for years

Ever wave to somebody in a supermarket then have your heart suddenly drop as you realise it's not exactly who you think it is? Well, imagine doing that everyday, for ten years, and all of a sudden the shock of realising that yes - indeed - it's not who you think.

Well, Gabriela Brandão, a make-up artist from Sao Paulo but who lives in Florianópolis, revealed that her great Grandmother had exactly that happen to her, sort of. Her grandmother had been praying to St Anthony for years before she was told last week that it wasn't him... But the character Elrond from Lord of the Rings.

Her granddaughter revealed the following on Facebook: “My daughter’s great-grandmother prays to this figure of Saint Anthony every day, but looking more closely…”, before revealing that it is actually a toy of Elrond, an elf from Lord of the Rings. She called it the “funniest discovery of 2016”.

Brandão later told BuzzFeed: “We tried to explain right away but she didn’t understand at first. The next day we explained again and she understood and we got her a new figure of Saint Anthony.”

Ian McKellen found it funny, of course, posting the following to Facebook:
