    Hey Angbohr, I think we need a hint. I think it's about a couple of elves, but that's just a feeling.

    Oh no, a hint?

    But... it is one of the most wonderful things Tolkien wrote
    Couple yes, not elves. But surely they can brag about being more Elves than any other Men

    P.S. I'll drop another hint if this isn't solved within tomorrow. Just thinking about what hint I can provide without giving the solution away for free

    P.P.S. Nevermind, here's the hint: divorce

    okay, it cannot be Elrond and Celebrian, both because Celebrian is elven, and they married in 109 TA. Is this somehow related to Numenor?

    Could it be Thorin Oakenshield - after doing the ride in the barrels, out of Felegoth?

    Greetings, Polymachos
    So, Polymachos...you think that pack of 12 dwarves were "sensible"?

    They were escapees, yes, but sensible? I would describe them more as desperate, starving, inept, clowns.

    Sensible, they were not!

    Next up?

    Who is Fatty Lumpkin?

    After their misadventures on the Barrow Downs, the hobbits learned that their frightened ponies had bolted, but were lucky enough (and sensible enough) to find Tom Bombdil's trusty steed, who calmed them and led them back to Tom and the hobbits.
    Later, after the ponies were frightened again and ran from Bree, they once again found Fatty on the Barrow Downs, and spent some time at Tom's house.
