Middle-earth Conspiracy Theories Can't Post

So why did Tom Bombadil keep himself apart from the wider world anyway?

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

"Ah, how ironic, the addictive qualities of Sauronís 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.

So he can develop his own secret plans for world conquest! [In reply to] Can't Post

  
Tom takes the long-view. After King Elessar dies the Fourth Age is ripe for the taking.

Bombadil was responsible for the horsemeat scandal [In reply to] Can't Post

Middle-earth found out that Fatty Lumpkin had been used in their favourite beef products.

It wasn't his choice [In reply to] Can't Post

He was exiled by right-minded folk who couldn't put up with his "Hey dol! merry dol! ring a dong dillo!" If he were my neighbor and sang like that all day, I'd vote for stricter noise ordinances if I couldn't get him banished to the fringes of the Barrow Downs.

I blame Goldberry [In reply to] Can't Post

Tom was too sexy for his yellow boots.

It's not his fault. Goldberry kept him in isolation. She was afraid that all the women in Middle-earth would fall for him. Turns out, beards are in. Tongue

When the dwarves had just been cast, she was so intrigued by Graham McTavish.
As I pointed out to her, he looked a lot like my Uncle. Laugh

Yes [In reply to] Can't Post

"You know, that guy you see around town who is either the most annoying public nuisance ever or a fabulously quirky local character. "

Added is the fact that he talks to willow trees and claims to be able to drive ghosts out of cemeteries, and you've got a crazy public menace on your hands. Just as bad, he calls his pet "Fatty" in public, which makes the overweight unfairly self-conscious. Nuisance all around; keep your kids away from him.
