It definitely couldn't be those three, because they have Elvish names (see question 3).

I don't think it can be any of the other Great Rings, because Mithalwen responded to the Feanor question...

I'm thinking some sort of insult. 'Impertinent' sounds like the sort of thing Gandalf would call Pippin, but I can't actually find it in the text. Half-baked also sounds like a Pippin thing.

First up, an apology: I messed up with 'plant-based'; I forgot that clothes in LotR are more likely to be wool than cotton. Either animal-based or metal would have been a better choice to rule out.

There should probably be a 'sounds like' somewhere in that clue, to be honest; it just didn't fit.

Hell, Mike did what?

Snort. Well, Tolkien forums always were a refuge from the passage of time... ;)

Right, it's not plant-based. So it's not food, it's not general clothing. It's probably not a document, since I don't think any are explicitly said to be on vellum or something, so I don't think we'd...

So what do we know? It's a crafted object, not extant in the First Age but around in the Third. It's small enough and light enough to pick up. It's almost certainly not a weapon - not a sword, not...

There's also sheep, which in Primitive Quendian can be named by either of the noises they make: 'meeeeh, meeeeh' or '(m)baaaa'. A dove is a 'Kukūwā' - 'coo, coo'.

I'd generally agree. I think that Tolkien saw the stories similarly to this: LotR was "true", but Hobbit was coloured by Bilbo's perspective. Taking that position meant he could entirely change...
