Like fiery eyeball thing, no problem. But don’t even try to imagine a Samoan elf. (x)

"where imagination is capped out, is a brown hobbit."

 Not to detract from Wyatt Cenac’s point, because it is definitely the most important issue at hand here, but shame on Peter Jackson even more because the Harfoot Hobbits were described by Tolkien as having brown skin:

“The Harfoots were browner of skin, smaller, and shorter, and they were beardless and bootless, their hands and feet were neat and nimble and they preferred highlands and hillsides.”

-J.R.R. Tolkien “Concerning Hobbits”

Another quote further down They were the most normal and representative variety of Hobbit, and far the most numerous.”

Okay, so I had this dream a couple of nights ago that was basically Lord of the Rings, but all of the horses were replaced with motorcycles.  It was pretty great because it was just pretty much exactly like the films, but with everyone riding around like crazy bike gangs. And everyone had bikes that were unique to their characters. 

Well, like it says on the ring,  “One hog to rule the roads.”
