    Wow Gandalf has a ring? I didn't know he was an elf. That is so cool, he's just like legolas.

    TTT is my favourite movie of all time! Who is this Eowyn you are talking about?

    - LotR is a sham off of HP's success.

    - ...and of course everyone knows Frodo destroys the ring.

    - Dumbledore is my favourite character, without him no one would have known anything about the ring.

    "Now, who's Pippin again?"

    my reply: "one of the four hobbits, the one with curly hair that helped Merry steal the fireworks"

    their reply: "Who's Merry? And there were fireworks?"

    I think the most common is "what is he doing that for?" I hate it when people ask that, because most of it is hard to explain and the person usually doesn't care that much anyway. I'm always going "just watch the movie!!"

    I used to not know that Gandalf held one of the elven rings. At first when I found out, I was like 'but he's not an elf!!...or is he?'

    I know better. I learned a lot. :)

    - the inference that hobbits are actually midgets and not another race always gets me.

    A newbee thing:
    always getting Saruman and Sauron confused, or thinking they were the same person.

    "So wait I thought they were the same person just pernounsing(sp) the name wrong."

    oh this one was so funny "I couldn't believe it MErry and Pippin just ran off with the orcs after Borimir died protecting them!

    In an RPG, this is a character who claims to be Galadriel's sister yelling at Galadriel

    "You also think you are so much wiser than me but I would just like to remind you that I am 24, only a year younger than you."

    Even worse, the RPG was taking place 20 years after the war of the ring which would mean Galadriel was 4 years old in the LoTR books.
