Ah, solicitors. [In reply to] Can't Post

Grubbing for your money, burrowing into your accounts! Laugh This is a lovely bit of humour to let us know we are really and truly back in the "civilized" Shire.

And Tolkien will express this "distaste" again in LotR, when Bilbo's Will "was, unfortunately, very clear and correct (according to the legal customs of hobbits, with demand among other things seven signatures of witnesses in red ink)."

What a proper parody of "legalese"!
