Legolas getting teased

Remember in the Lord of the Rings when Legolas summarises someone's description of the tactics for getting through the giant gate by saying "A diversion"? That always sounded a bit stupid to me, and it seems like the kind of thing his friends would tease him about for quite some time.
"Hey, Legolas?"
"Five across, nine letters, 'a feint intended to draw off attention from the main point of attack'?"
"Oh, yeah, thanks. What about eight down, nine letters again, 'a channel made to DIVERT the flow of water'?"
"... Diversion"
(snicker) "Ah, of course."
"Hey, one last one? British, a detour on a highway or road."
"You guys suck."

PS - Well, I think it's funny.
PPS - A bit, anyway.
