Hundreds of cats, thousands of cats, millions and billions and trillions of cats. [In reply to] Can't Post

As you say, that soft of repetition is pretty common in storytelling and in books that are written to be read aloud.

And I think "rocks and blocks" is meant to be the sort of thing a goblin might say.

I did a quick google search and found out it's a popular name for landscaping companies :-) I wonder if the owners are Hobbit readers.
