Maybe The Hobbit is not meant to be a perfectly accurate account of events, but an adaptation for children of what actually happened. Maybe Bilbo made the adaptation for Hobbit children. It does have a rather Bilbo-ish tone and manner, does it not?

Maybe The Hobbit is meant to be a story for children. [] Let me repeat: a story. []

Poor Grim, you should know by now (from dealing with all those filthy Commie lib'rals [] ) that the crazy is like a goldfish: it grows to fill the available container. Unfortunately, the internet is limitless.

Not only is my post crazy, but it belongs under the topic "Is The Hobbit Accurate?" I suppose newbies often start topics that already exist... all of mine are probably like that. WGW, please move/remove my threads.

Naw, save the thread. [] Leave it as a lesson for others.
