SAST Quiz #18 Can't Post

*Ro tiptoes in, trusty torch at the ready once again* Hail and well met, quiztakers! Welcome to our penultimate The Hobbit Short Attention Span Theatre quiz. With only two chapters left to cover, if you’ve been keeping track, you probably guessed which one we’re doing this week: Chapter 5, Riddles in the Dark. Thus (if you’ve paid attention!) you should know what’s coming up next week. Got your riddling-caps on? Good. Torches and headlamps ready? Excellent -- they sure are getting a lot of use in these quizzes – I never stopped to consider before how much of this book takes places underground or in otherwise dark and dodgy places. Now, you know the drill: SAST quizzes are utterly and indubitably CLOSED BOOK *glares sternly over quizmistress glasses* meaning you MAY NOT sneak a peek (or peek at a sneak, even if you’re so inclined) at anything, book or otherwise. Suspected cheaters will be left behind for Gollum’s next meal, and will never, EVER get another look at Thorin’s hair! Quiz closes in three days, questions worth one point each, and bribes are always and most welcome. Headlamps on and off you go!

*Ro tiptoes down tunnel, wistfully wishing there were at least one Dwarf in this chapter*

1. Bilbo finds himself alone in the Goblin tunnels. He continues down and down, until he does something suddenly that pulls him up sharp and short. What?

2. Where does Gollum make his home, such as it is?

3. What’s the answer to this riddle? “It cannot be seen, cannot be felt,/ Cannot be heard, cannot be smelt. / It lies behind stars and under hills,/ And empty holes it fills./ It comes first and follows after,/ Ends life, kills laughter.”

4. When Bilbo asks his last question, “What have I got in my pocket?”, Gollum guesses four things in his three guesses. Name all four of these things. [Must get all four for credit!]

5. As Bilbo is making his escape from the Goblins, he gets himself stuck in the doorway between the door and the doorpost. What part of his clothing does he lose when he gives a terrific squirm and manages to free himself?


Answers & Results to Quiz #17 to be posted here later today when I get a chance!
