Bilbo's Birthday

It also has to be said Bilbo Baggins makes a brilliant statement at his birthday speach, you can either watch it in full or read the part I like best below.


"Alas, eleventy one years is far too short a time to live among such excellent and admirable hobbits. I don’t know half of you half as well as I should like and I like less than half of you half as well as you deserve."

Just for fun
