    I believe I have the best noobie saying ever. I was talking to my ski teacher about Gollum. She knew he was the one Gandalf and Frodo were talking about and that he was the one saying preciousss at the beginning of the film. Then she said, "Oh yeah. He was huge wasn't he. And all that fire and when he pulled Gandalf down? That was amazing."

    he newbiest thing
    I heard would have to be " I think frodo and sam are gay" or maybe " Do you think frodos dad Bilbo, should have gone with him instead of sam" But this one takes the cake " Glamdringiel should have taken the ring when Flopo Baginos offered it to her"

    This person must have just been being silly, as we never saw Tom in the movies, he was never even mentioned. And Glorfy?? I never saw him in the movie either, except in the fight scene in the beginning.


    ok, here is one. I have read the books every year for the last 30 years and found this hard to answer without laughing too hard. keeping in mind that they saw both movies too...

    If Gandalf was helping Frodo destroy the ring, why didn't he just levitate him there?

    My personal favorite was right after the Fellowship movie came out, and someone in my school was really pissed off because he "thought it was going to be a good movie not just some stupid Dungeons and Dragons ripoff! Tolkien should have though of some stuff on his own instead of just stealing everyone elses stuff for a crappy movie."

    I later saw a comic somewhere that had that as a joke in it, but I saw that in school, and I laughed for a while about that one.

    "What's a Gandalf?"
    or
    "What's a Frodo?"


    I have actually heard these and repeated them as funny comments to my friends.

    also, "Which one was Gollum again?"
    and "So, wait, did boromir die?"

    Me trying to explain something about the palantir to my mom: "so when Pippin picked up the palantir..."
    My mom: "The palantir? What was that again?
    I describe the palantir as a round black ball looking thing that glows.
    My mom: "Oh, you mean the bowling ball?"

    Actually, coming out of ROTK, there was a huge line for the next showing. So just to get the noobies in the line going, I come out of the theater and say to my friend, "Wow! Who would've guessed that Gandalf was Aragorn's father?!" My friend caught on..."Yeah! I know!" There was at least one kid I saw that looked shocked. HA!! Noobs.
