What’s this Adventurer doing in my Wood?

Using his meagre survival skills, Thesis makes do with wild berries and what are hopefully mushrooms. Moving deeper into the forest, Thesis is surprised a few days later by four Elves dressed in camouflage greens. They appear out of the foliage with their long swords drawn, but signal that the hulking Thesis should not draw his.
Without the back-up of his friends, Thesis capitulates. He could probably take out these four without much effort, but what if he’s being over confident?
“What are you doing near the hidden Elven village?”
“What hidden Elven village?”
“What?”
“What?”
“Is there a hidden Elven village around here?”
“What have you heard? Who's been talking?”
Realising that he’s going to get nothing from these overtly defensive Elves, Thesis begs for some food and continues on.

This getting distinctly Monty-Python like ;)

I suspect I'll be meeting the Knights-who-say-Ni next.

Actually, I realise that the reference was "The Young Ones", but never mind that now.
