Hello everyone! 🙂
Welcome to ‘Bradley’s Basement’ blog and I’m Tim Bradley!
It’s Day 4 of ‘Bradley’s Basement’s Advent Calendar 2021.
Let’s check out Chapter 4 of ‘The Lord of the Rings: Comedy Version’ as we delve more into Part 1 of the story – ‘The Fellowship of the Freak’! 🙂
‘The Not-So-Long Council of Elrond’
In Rivendell, the Council of Elrond takes place.
ELROND: “Now! You’re all here…because of a ring! Not just…any ring. Not even…a wedding ring. Not even…”
GIMILI: (interrupts) “A birthday ring?”
ELROND: “Frodo, stop laughing! This is very serious!”
A short while later, a debate ensues on who should take the Ring to Mordor.
GIMLI: “I’ll take the Ring to Mordor with my axe!”
LEGOLAS: “No! I’ll take the Ring to Mordor with my bow and arrow. And my beautiful flowing blonde hair!”
BOROMIR: “No! You two are pathetic!”
LEGOLAS: “What do you mean?”
BOROMIR: “I’m the greatest warrior to ever live in the whole of Gondor! Your hair is as white as the snow and your beard is like that of a burnt down tree.”
GIMILI: (offended) “HOW DARE YOU SAY THAT?!!!”
Once Frodo volunteers to take the Ring to Mordor and Gandalf agrees to help him, Aragorn steps forward.
ARAGORN: “Whether by life…or by death…I can protect you. I will. You have my sword.”
LEGOLAS: “You have my bow.”
GIMLI: “You have my axe…and my beard!”
BOROMIR: “And you have my um…moustache.”
BOROMIR: “Sorry, shield.”
SAM: (calls) “Heh!”
Sam jumps out from behind the bushes and joins them.
SAM: “I’m going!”
SAM: “I’m going with err…my hair! With my hair on!”
Merry and Pippin also emerge from behind the pillars to join them.
MERRY: “Wait! And err…me and my friend will go!”
PIPPIN: “Yes! With our legs and our smelly feet!”
Thus, the Fellowship of the Freak is formed!
