Nowhere near Shirriff, alas [In reply to] Can't Post

I have 1,2,11,12,15,16 and am completely stumped on the others. (At least, I think I have 2 - is a syllable missing? does the answer have three syllables?)

Hey hanne, would you like to post your six? [In reply to] Can't Post

Maybe it will help jump-start some of our TORnsib intelligentsia that I KNOW are on this site.

I’m left in the dust on The ‘Riddle Game’ over on ‘Off Topic’. It reminds me of a quote by George Gobel one New Year’s Eve on the Johnny Carson Show (paraphrase): “Did you ever feel like the whole world’s a tuxedo and you’re a brown pair of shoes?” So we know there are some super smart people lurking, lurking. . . Cool Cool

Quote
14. Picasso’s Bro. ** Trepidation
Theo ** ---

"Theodred" Theoden's late and lamented heir and Eowyn's cousin.

But, my dear Bracegirdle, Pablo Picasso had no brother, just two sisters. (Lola and Conchita) Theo was Vincent Van Gogh's brother Pirate

We are the fighting Uruk-Hai! We slew the great warrior! Well, yeah, first he killed a bunch of us and another whole lot of Mauhúr's lads, and we had to shoot enough arrows into him to drop a Mûmak. But we got him!

Yes, Gil-Estel is a little esoteric. I think it’s only used once, in The Silmarillion.
