    Why not? Bilbo Stole the Ring from Gollum…

    I never got to watch /The Godfather/ trilogy, but I did get to watch /The Lord of the Ring/ trilogy.

    Frito, Moxie, Pepsi, Goodgulf (I think), Sorehead…anybody remember the rest of the character names from National Lampoon’s “Bored of the Rings”?

    Bilbo was a gun-for-hire working for a thug named Gandalf, aka ‘the wizard’, who was an enforcer of boss Thorin Oakenshield. Bilbo is known to have participated in the assault to Lonely Mountain with the 13 Dwarves gang. The Hobbits were into something…

    Pig’s sure off the mark with that claim. True, Bilbo may not have been its key instigator, but he was definitely the principal burglar in the whole robbery scheme. Tolkien didn’t name him Baggins for no reason.

    “They” say that Godfather III is the weakest of the trilogy. But even it wouldn’t off a hobbit. Hobbits, unlike the Mafia, are fictitious.

    ‘Fraido you’re wrong about Fredo, Pig.

    Pig. That’s not a Sicilian name, is it? No respect….

    I believe that Michael did the deed himself. He didn’t “have Fredo shot”.

    Is it weird that I’ve never seen not one Godfather movie?

    Goat should not make a hobbit of spoiling plot surprises.

    What I’ve long-suspected has finally been proven true — punning has become a “hobbit” with Pastis!

    Don’t worry, Mike will never put out a contract on Fredo while Mama’s still alive.

    (Tom, put out a contract on Mama!)

    “Hobbits and organized crime don’t mix”

    Pig has obviously never met the Bag’s End Thieves Guild
