Greetings and salutations everyone! Bilbo and his faithful scribe are back this week after a bit of a break with another fun-filled brainteaser – our first on the new boards! Laugh

Tonight, Bilbo is busy reminiscing about his dear cousin Frodo (how many times removed, Patty? Wink) and his eventful life. So, the theme of tonight’s quiz is: all about Frodo.

The format tonight is “Phrase Re-arrange.’ Each group of letters below is part of a larger phrase that is out of order. Re-arrange the groups of letters to form the complete phrase. Each correct answer is worth 3 points each for a total of 30 points. Closed book!

    1. IN…G…ST (one word)
    Ingst' - Shire slang for 'gangster', which was what Mr F's peeps called him at when they gathered at midnight at the Four Farthing Stone in their tweens.
    (Sting)

    2. EL…FFR…ND…IE (two words)
    Fried elf - one of the meals Aragorn swore the Hobbits to secrecy on when they were really, really hungry between Weathertop and Rivendell. Which also explains the absence Elladan and Elrohir from the movie.
    (Elf friend)

    3. EA…R…RI…B…NG…RE (two words)
    Rear bireng - a little-known item of armour that saved Frodo from cheap shot to the heinie during the battle of the Chamber of Mazarbul.
    (Ring bearer)

    4. F…NE…RS…IN…GE…NI (two words)
    Finne Genirs - the name of Frodo's favourite Shire song, only half-remembered remnants of which remain today from the original line: "Finne genir finne genah, finne genir finne ginaaaaah, echoes sound afar finne genir finne genah".
    (Nine fingers)

    5. STE…MUS…OM…HRO…R…ALE (two words)
    Hroom musterale - Treebeard's message to Frodo, which the Hobbit was never able to decipher.

    (Crickhollow)

    9. HER…NW…TOP…WOU…DO…NDE…EAT (three words)
    Eather top donwnde - More incomprehensibility after a big night out from Frodo. The Green Dragon's ale had a lot to answer for, really.
    (Wounded on Weathertop)

    10. ADR…PHI…GAL…AL…OF…IEL (three words)
    Phil of Galadrieal - A wheelwright of the suburb of Galadrieal, Bree, who kept getting some long-lived chick's letters from her rellies in an awful-sounding place called Valinor.
    (Phial of Galadriel)

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

    "Ah, how ironic, the addictive qualities of Sauron’s master weapon led to its own destruction.

    *throws confetti and streamers into the air* [In reply to] Can't Post

    And now turns on brain. What's that terrible sound? Uh-oh, off to the brain mechanic we go.

    1. IN…G…ST (one word) STING
    The shortened version of one of Gollum's cousins nicknames, Stinger/Slinger. He made a great Mojito, but it left you with a nasty headache. This is the real reason that Gollum wanted to get out of the sunlight. 500 years later, still had a hangover.

    2. EL…FFR…ND…IE (two words) ELF FRIEND
    Or, as the elves used to say among themselves, bye bye love, bye bye sweet caress, hello wilderness, I think you're going to die-ie-ie. Bye bye Elf Friend goodbye.

    3. EA…R…RI…B…NG…RE (two words) RING BEARER
    Not quite as bad as being called Elf Friend, but a combination of the two is almost always fatal, and often much, much worse than fatal.

    4. F…NE…RS…IN…GE…NI (two words) NINE FINGERS
    A hobbit drinking song, much like ten green bottles, but involving pints, mowing scythes and questions asked of mysterious strangers in the pub. The real reason the Entwives didn't stick around in the Shire, despite its Arcadian beauty.

    5. STE…MUS…OM…HRO…R…ALE (two words) MUSHROOM STEALER
    Mushrooms are also beloved of Elves. It's a little known fact that mortals who steal mushrooms are named 'Elf Friend' as their punishment. No more certain way to be doomed, doomed, doomed for all time.

    6. ER…U…MR…ND…LL…HI (two words) MR UNDERHILL
    Ironically, Frodo nearly ended up as MR UNDERMOUNTAIN

    7. SO…D…N…RO…OF…GO (three words) SON OF DROGO
    It's true. Gandalf really was the son of Drogo.

    8. LO…CR…KH…W…IC…OL (one word) CRICKHOLLOW
    Probably good that Frodo left. There are no physiotherapists in the Shire.

    9. HER…NW…TOP…WOU…DO…NDE…EAT (three words) WOUNDED ON WEATHERTOP
    Everywhere you go, always take the Morgul Blade with you, everywhere you go, always take the blade.


    10. ADR…PHI…GAL…AL…OF…IEL (three words) PHIAL OF GALADRIEL

    1. IN…G…ST (one word)

    Ingst. Found in early drafts of the LotR manuscript; archaic form of the word "angst", back-developed (de-evolved) to avoid too jarring a note of modernity when referring to Aragorn.

    2. EL…FFR…ND…IE (two words)

    Elf R.N., Die. Quote from a note sent by the notorious serial killer Sickkillerimë the Nurse-hater, in the LotR spin-off CSI: Lothlorien (episode 4, season 2).

    3. EA…R…RI…B…NG…RE (two words)


    Ear Rib Ingres. From a "Hollywood Insider" interview with Gollum, his answer to the questions "What are three things you love *besides* the Ring?" The first two were said with a speculative look at the interviewer which may have had some connection with this interviewer's decision immediately afterward to leave the country and change her name. The third response was a surprise to many, as it had hitherto been thought that Gollum's favorite artist was Goya.

    4. F…NE…RS…IN…GE…NI (two words)

    *runs out of steam and time*

    1 = Sting
    2 = Elf-friend
    3 = Ring-bearer
    4 = Nine fingers

    5. STE…MUS…OM…HRO…R…ALE (two words)

    Mushroom stealer!

    and through all the world has changed

    and yet those remain unchanged
    unto they journey westward
    over the sea...
