Titles to make you smile...

This is Bethberry's idea which she shared with me during our small moot, so I give her full credit for this thread. The point is to come up with potential (though unexistent as yet) thread names/titles that would be amusing, at least here: if I saw someone seriously making one of these threads my brain would have a short circuit somewhere . This is our small contribution, but I expect something much more grand to be posted here in the next couple time units.

Does canonicity have free will?

Are bananas essential to moots?

Who would win in a fight: bananas vs wurst

C*ri*top*er T*lki*n C*ns*r*d My Thr*ad
(I thought of this one after the moot)



Well, go ahead with it.

Seriously - what is this "wurst" thing?

I'm German and still don't understand what is so fascinating about it

It originated in Finlandmoot, when Hookbill said something or other, and even got a special mention from P&A.

Bananas are a more recent thing, also related to moots. Rune is to be blamed for this one, as well as Paper Telephone. The banana appeared at a moot, and was proven to be canonical by Bethberry.

You're behind the times, Miggy!

The wurst thing is that we'll probably never see any of these titles anywhere on the Downs.


You're a Wizard, Gandalf!

Am I a Saucepan?

Who is Mr. Bliss, really?

We'd all go bananas!


Did Urwen kill Maedhros?

How much wood can a wood-chuck chuck if a wood-chuck can chuck Old Man Willow?

The Chapter-by-Chapter sub-forum is going chapter by chapter

Shield

Judging by the current top threads, we could get a decent discussion out of

What do Radagast, Alatar and Pallando assign to Mordor?

Interesting to hear their thoughts, anyway.

Edit to say: Actually, I've just had a look and I reckon even wizards would find it difficult to make the 'Mordor'-thread interesting. So scrap that suggestion.

How do I start a thread?

Why have so many threads?

How do I ask a question?




Yes I'm being silly.

Does Tom Bombadil have wings?

What colour is an Entwife's hair?

Is Middle-Earth in the middle?

MCRmyGirl4eva has just left Hobbiton.
Radagast as Gandalf's cousin: Were all the wizards related?

Was Shelob a spider of Mirkwood who somehow went South?


Legitimate concerns, but full inquiry in title, again.

Where did Thorin get his majesty?

Radagast's hair decoration looks crap.
