Tell us a Tolkien-based joke

For example:

Q: Do Ents like Winter?
A: yes, they find it enticing.

Or:
Did you hear the one about the elf baby raised by goblins? It was a little awkward.

Or:
Aragorn, Boromir, Gandalf and Legolas walk into a bar. The rest of the Fellowship walks under the bar.

And: Having set the bar agreeably low, I'm sure someone else can do better Smile

Here's some from my collection


Quote
Two guards of the Citadel are standing next to the White Tree in Minas Tirith. One of them lets his gaze wander over the war-torn land in front of them, the occupied city Osgiliath and the dark mountains on the horizon behind it, and sighs deeply: "I firmly believe that one day, in all lands of Middle-earth, there will be peace!"
The other, completely unmoved and drily: " ... you're living in a fantasy world, do you know that?"

Why don't Balrogs fly?

Because their fiery whips don't fit in the overhead compartment.

Celebrimbor: "Pretty rings..."
Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."
Men: "Pretty rings..."
Sauron: "Mine's better."

"Ah, how ironic, the addictive qualities of Sauron’s master weapon led to its own destruction. Which just goes to show, kids - if you want two small and noble souls to succeed on a mission of dire importance... send an evil-minded beggar with them too." - Gandalf's Diaries, final par, by Ufthak.

Three Dwarves walk into a bar

But they get no service. The bartender says, "Sorry, we don't serve miners."

Eleven days' wonder.

Not a Tolkien joke but what I thought was a funny Tolkien reference today. Because of TORN's (quite reasonable) policies, I can't get into the specifics, but a commentator who co-hosts a public radio podcast on, shall we say, national legal affairs, shared a "DM" (direct message) exchange he'd had using Twitter with, um, someone who's been in the news over the past few days.

Public figure: "How happy are you now that you get 1000 retweets. Hopeless took"

Public figure: "Tool"

Commentator: "actually I'm a brandybuck"


Treachery, treachery I fear; treachery of that miserable creature.

But so it must be. Let us remember that a traitor may betray himself and do good that he does not intend.

Why can't balrogs write computer code?

because Gandalf has cursed them - 'you shall not parse!'

And perhaps also because they melt the keyboard....

How did 'Daddy Twofoot' get his name?

Because at the time he appears talking to the Gamgees in the Ivy Bush, he was the eldest male member of the Twofoot clan, of course!

Oh? You were expecting a different answer? Evil
