Just for fun - If people in Middle Earth wore t-shirts, What would they say?

If you were a character in LOTR, and if people in Middle Earth wore t-shirts with slogans, what would yours say?


If I were a Maia living among elves or men, I'd want a t-shirt that read,

"Ask me about the AinulindalŰ"



Suppose the nine Nazgűl had t-shirts (in black, of course) that read,

"Servant of Sauron"

and Sauron had one, almost the same, that read,

"Servant of Melkor"



Frodo would have this one, (this is actually a real t-shirt design)

I was …
chased from my house,
stabbed by a wraith,
assaulted by a mutant octopus,
speared by a troll,
stalked by a creepy little man,
drawn into a corpse-filled swamp,
poisoned by a giant spider,
rendered unconscious …
I even lost my Ring,
And all I got was this lousy tshirt



And if I were any randomly selected hobbit, mine would be: (this is also a real t-shirt design)

The Prancing Pony Inn

Bree

I think this should go in the Mirth section...

Butterbur's T-shirt would say:

"One moment, I'm coming!"

or

"Please remind me if I forgot about any letters"

Pippin's t-shirt would probably read....

Demand my help if you ever wish to mess up and get beaten up.

Gandalf's may read as.....

First grey, then white;
My anger's my greatest might.

This amusing thread idea is definitely suited to the Mirth forum area. I'm moving it there - please continue to read and post at the new location. Thanks!

Here's another one.

If I were a Maia, and my Vala had me doing a lot more errands and chores than usual such that I was feeling oppressed, I would want a t shirt that read,

"Maia" means "Servant"
It does not mean "Slave"



for Elves:

A Elbereth Gilthoniel
Silivren penna mÝriel
O menel aglar elenath
Gilthoniel, A! Elbereth



Pippin might have on that said,

"What about Second Breakfast?"



and Sauron's would say,

"All I want is a band of gold" (with apolgies to Freda Payne and her excellent song from the '70's.)

Gollum's: "Preciousss!"

or: "Got fisshess?"

or: "Look at yourself, you fat nasty hobbit!"

Balrog's: "I can fly in my drems"

Fell beast: "As you can see, I'm not that fell: I'm still in the air!"

Bilbo: "Read my books, not my shirt!"

Gandalf: "Careful... this shirt - and cloak - may come off any moment!"

Bill the pony: "Hey! You're covering this writing with the baggage!"



That's it for now.

Or, if it has to be a ME, character and not a Downer - anyone from The Sil.
