The Return of "Lame Middle Earth Riddles"! Can't Post

This one is from my oldest daughter.

What did Strider's friends call him when he told too many puns?

Highlight answer - - -> Aragroan

I know. I'm a bad influence on my daughter. ;o)

I often want to criticise Jane Austen, but her books madden me so that I can't conceal my frenzy from the reader; and therefore I have to stop every time I begin. Everytime I read 'Pride and Prejudice' I want to dig her up and beat her over the skull with her own shin-bone." - Mark Twain

Elven by name, Hobbit by nature

'Road lead ever on and on
down from the door where it began
now far ahead the road has gone
down from where all began' -FOTR-

and through all the world has changed
the ages come and go with time
and yet those remain unchanged
unto they journey westward
over the sea...

Why did the hobbit cross the road? [In reply to] Can't Post

To get to the other cider.

Why did the hobbit cross the road?
To get away from the Black Rider.

Why did Cate Blanchett cross the road?
To get to NIDA.

Why did Oliphaunt cross the road?
Because he thought the other side was wider.

Why did the Elf King cross the road?
Because he thought that an ancient heirloom necklace that belonged to him was over there. Why else?

Children’s Interpretations of the Bible

Lot’s wife was a pillar of salt during the day, but a ball of fire during the night.

The greatest miracle in the Bible is when Joshua told his son to stand still and he obeyed him.

Christians have only one spouse. This is called monotony.

I don't understand whoosh! [In reply to] Can't Post

But if whoosh means my riddle didn't make sense, I was attempting to make a pun on Thorin Oakenshield --

Ok, I admit it's a stretch -- probably works better if you know the answer already!

Just didn't want you to think I had an unhealthy obsession about coke bottles and high heels...

Okay, I have to tell the story. [In reply to] Can't Post

(Especially because you're a flutist.) Way back in the '80s, I was a record store manager. A bunch of friends and I went to an R.E.M. concert and had backstage passes from a record company rep. I was wearing a t-shirt with a Bach flute sonata printed on it. When I met Mike Mills, the guitarist, he asked what it was. I told him, and he imitated Radar, saying, "Ah, Bach." We both started laughing. My poor friend who was standing next to me thought we'd lost it. He was by far the nicest member of the band.

I used to wear the t-shirt to music-y things in high school, like auditions and festivals. People, even bass clarinet or tuba players (guys, of course), would come up to me and stare at my chest, saying, "Can I play your shirt?" Pfft. They can't even *play* those notes! ;o)

That's great. I suddenly like REM even more now.

I'm not the flutist, though - can't carry a tune in a bucket. (I failed recorder in 2nd grade.Tongue) Must be one of the other A-ladies (or B-girls).

What do you get when you hand a balrog a Saruman's surprize? [In reply to] Can't Post

 







BALROOM!

"Tolkien, like Lewis, believed that, through story, the real world would become a more magical place, full of meaning. We see its patterns and colors in a fresh way. The recovery of a true view of the world applies both to individual things, like hills and stones, and to the cosmic - the depths of space and time itself. For in sub-creation, in Tolkien's view, there is a "survey" of space and time. Reality is captured on a miniature scale. Through stories like The Lord of the Rings, a renewed view of things is given, illuminating the homely, the spiritial, the physical, and the moral dimensions of the world."
