** World Hobbit Day ** Bilbo's Brainteasers Reprise! Can't Post

Many of you would not know this, but years ago Altaira would post a weekly quiz on Sunday nights called "Bilbo's Brainteasers". A couple of times I was allowed to sub for her, and created a few quizzes for it.

This one, in honor of Bilbo's and Frodo's birthdays, is a Word Scramble/Scavenger Hunt called "Scrambled Gifts". We all know that after The Party, Bilbo left special presents to be given to certain Hobbits. Do you remember what they were? To find out, you can use the clues to look them up in the book, or have fun unscrambling the words!


1. For the Gaffer, a bottle of MINTNOTE

2. And two sacks of STOOPATE

3. And also a woolen SATCATOWI

4. For Adelard Took, an RUMLABEL

5. For Dora Baggins, a waste-paper SAKBET

6. For niece Angelica, a round convex RIMROR

7. For Hugo Bracegirdle, an empty KOBO-SEAC

8. For Rory Brandybuck, a dozen bottles of Old SWAYDRIN.

9. For Milo Burrows, a gold pen and KIN BETLOT

10. For Lobelia, a case of silver SNOPOS


Remember, put no answers in the subject line of your reply! Have fun! Smile

Ooh, fun! [In reply to] Can't Post

1. For the Gaffer, a bottle of MINTNOTE Ointment

2. And two sacks of STOOPATE Po-ta-toes! Boil 'em, mash 'em, stick 'em in a stew!

3. And also a woolen SATCATOWI Waistcoat. Properly pronounced weskit, of course.

4. For Adelard Took, an RUMLABEL Umbrella

5. For Dora Baggins, a waste-paper SAKBET A tisket, a tasket, a green and yellow basket! Which, come to think of it, is a very hobbity sounding sort of item.

6. For niece Angelica, a round convex RIMROR Mirror. Hey, funny face!

7. For Hugo Bracegirdle, an empty KOBO-SEAC Book-case

8. For Rory Brandybuck, a dozen bottles of Old SWAYDRIN. Winyards. Cheers! I wonder what the favorite toast of hobbits is?

I got these! [In reply to] Can't Post

1. For the Gaffer, a bottle of MINTNOTE -- Tone mint, that was easy!

2. And two sacks of STOOPATE -- oop state! (a bunch of things from the place where people mess up a lot)

3. And also a woolen SATCATOWI -- cat-o-waist (better than a dog-o-face)

4. For Adelard Took, an RUMLABEL -- bare mull (she was headed south)

5. For Dora Baggins, a waste-paper SAKBET -- tea bks (books! about tea!)

6. For niece Angelica, a round convex RIMROR -- mr orri (as in Ori's dad)

7. For Hugo Bracegirdle, an empty KOBO-SEAC -- sock ea bo (designer footwear)

8. For Rory Brandybuck, a dozen bottles of Old SWAYDRIN. -- dr inways (like Dr. Pepper, only better)

9. For Milo Burrows, a gold pen and KIN BETLOT -- blink tote (look fast or it'll get carried away!)

10. For Lobelia, a case of silver SNOPOS -- posson (a possum, but not quite)

So, how'd I do? Smile

#3 was giving me some troubles, but in the end I got it

I always enjoy Bilbo's sarcasm in this passage. Never gets old. Laugh


..The land of long-forgotten name:
......no man may ever anchor near;
..No steering star his hope may aim,
......for nether Night its marches drear,
..And waters wide no sail may tame,
......with shores encircled dark and sheer.

..O! Haven where my heart would be!
......the waves beat upon thy bar
..For ever echo endlessly,
......when longing leads thy thought afar

Yes, but where did you got - er, get them? [In reply to] Can't Post

Wink

Y'know, maybe we should have a Middle-earth "Boggle", where you're given a handful of letters, and need to come up with as many Middle-earth related words as possible! Laugh

(And I think a possum is a very appropriate gift for Lobelia, a live one on a leash...Angelic)
