Bilbo: I don't know half of you half as well as I should like, and I like less than half of you half as well as you deserve!

DAY THIRTEEN ~ FUNNIEST QUOTE
Oh, goodness, the funniest quote? One of the best things about Middle Earth is that Tolkien flavored these grand, epic stories with just the right amount of humor. There are many funny moments in the books and movies.
Here is one of my favorite funny scenes. The quote at the top of the page is another of my favorites.
Pippin: I feel like I'm back at the Green Dragon.
Merry: [through a mouthful of food] Mm. Green Dragon.
Pippin: A mug of ale in my hand, putting my feet up on a settle after a hard day's work.
Merry: Only, you've never done a hard day's work, Pip.
[They laugh; Gandalf, Aragorn, Legolas, and Gimli ride up. Merry stands and gives an exaggerated bow]
Merry: Welcome, my lords, to Isengard!
Gimli: You young rascals! A merry hunt you've led us on, and now we find you... feasting and... and smoking!
Pippin: We are sitting on a field of victory enjoying a few well-earned comforts.
[Merry blows a smoke ring]
Pippin: The salted pork is particularly good.
Gimli: [eagerly] Salted pork?
Gandalf: [exasperated] Hobbits.
