Drunk Tolkien 4: Mathematics and Gollum

We finally found time to get drunk together! Please join Caitlin, Rachel, and Emmy as we eat some brunch, drink some drinks, and listen to Gollum impressions, and answer twitter’s most ridiculous middle earth related questions, like “Why does Pippin always look up when he gets an apple?”

  • Math and alcohol and albatrosses. Obviously
  • Hobbit children are ent wives and we have the science to prove it.
  • Caitlin obviously meant Rangers of the SOUTH every single time she said Rangers of the NORTH
  • Richard Armitage should just play everyone, ever. Thank you.

A big thank you to the following folks for their Gollum impressions. We enjoyed each one immensely and laughed a lot.
