Barliman Butterbur versus Basil Fawlty Can't Post

Who best protects the hobbits against the Black Men of Mordor?

Bonus: Nob versus Manuel: Who is the slowest coach?

“Begone, foul dwimmerlaik, lord of carrion! Leave the dead in peace!"
"Come not between the Nazgul and his prey! Or he will not slay thee in thy turn. He will bear thee away to the houses of lamentation, beyond all darkness, where thy flesh shall be devoured, and thy shrivelled mind be left naked to the Lidless Eye."
"Do what you will; but I will hinder it, if I may."
"Hinder me? Thou fool. No living man may hinder me!"
"But no living man am I! I am Eowyn, daughter of Theodwyn!”
"Er, really? My mother's name was Theodwyn, too!"
"No way!"
"Wow! Let's stop fighting and be best friends!"

Basil's bumbling for the win. [In reply to] Can't Post

The Black Riders flee the hotel before their heads explode from the Basil/Manuel madness.

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. 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.

Basil imprisons Barliman in the ‘Fawlty Towers’ tower. [In reply to] Can't Post

Basil wins by defaulty.


Manuel is always scurrying about doing his manuel labor.
If Nob doesn’t come on a 'ring' you have to ‘ring and shout’.

Nob is the slowest slowcoach. Shocked

‘. . . the rule of no realm is mine . . .
But all worthy things that are in peril . . . those are my care.
For I also am a steward. Did you not know?'

Basil and Manuel vs Butterbut and Nob

Have to go with Basil as he is not averse to violence, has the reach and is just mean enough!
Manuel would take the much smaller Nob.
