Middle Earth epitaph

A friend (who wishes to remain anonymous) spontaneously came up with this joke which cracked us up:

What is written about people in Middle Earth when they die?

A Hobbituary.


  1. ...oh, how 'troll' :)

  2. An Hobbituary, if you please.
    'An' precedes vowels (and sometimes/usually h, because it's a pseudo-vowel)
    an orange, an apple, an idiot, an obituary

    but strict grammar is all about the exceptions too, and h is full of the exceptions, because it doesn't quite fit.

    ps: love the blog. keep up the good work

    1. Are you from the U.K. because we never use "an" in front of a word starting with a pronounced "h" here in the United States. And you definitely pronounce the "h" in "hobbituary".

  3. If your interested in more pictures of cool Hobbit holes in Hobbiton
    then you might want to check out this forum.

  4. Oh heavens....large groan from WV on that
