That's right, yet another piece of shameless self-promotion. My apologies to all.

In recognition of the birthday of Bilbo (and Frodo) Baggins, I thought I would share 22 of the funniest things I've noticed about The Hobbit. Funny as in "weird" or "Why did Tolkien do that?" I love The Hobbit, more than Lord Of The Rings, and I'm pointing out these oddities with great respect. They're part of why I love The Hobbit so much.

If possible, each daily post will also feature a way to celebrate Bilbo's birthday, beyond the usual wearing a costume around campus or dancing the springle-ring in a nearby park.

Sept 1: Thorin & Company brought no weapons on their quest
So, you're going on a quest to take your treasure back from a dragon. He may not want to let you have it. And the journey is likely to be dangerous. What would you include in you bags, parcels and paraphernalia? Swords! But they brought none!

Shameless! Embarassed

And now there was nothing but the roofs of houses, sweeping along like a great torrent of stones and rocks. Chimney-pots fell, and tiles flew from the roofs..."
