Lame Middle Earth Riddles Can't Post

The Main page is getting a little crowded, so I thought we could play the riddle game here. Just make up, or modify, your favorite riddle about Middle Earth or its residents. I'll get you started. The lamer, the better! Cool

What did Gollum say when he escaped from the elves of Mirkwood?



Highlight ------>"Call me mint jelly, 'cause I'm on the lam!" (lamb)

See? I told you it was lame. Tongue



And suddenly the Tornadoes saw afar off a greenlight, as it were a cloud with a living heart of flame;
and they knew that this was no vision only, but that PJ had made a new thing: The Hobbit, the Film that Is.

I think there's nothing there 'cause they never found 'em. I think. Haha.// [In reply to] Can't Post

 

Some who have read the book, or at any rate have reviewed it, have found it boring, absurd, or contemptible; and I have no cause to complain, since I have similar opinions of their works, or of the kinds of writing they evidently prefer.

Good becomes great. Bad becomes worse.  This is why you were chosen.  Because a strong man who has known power all his life may lose respect for that power.  But a weak man knows the value of strength and knows compassion.

Hooray! [In reply to] Can't Post

I love grape jokes! One of my professors in grad school put one on an abstract algebra exam: "What's purple and commutes?" "An Abelian grape". (Has to be the most obscure grape joke ever.)
