Since there was no "All" choice, I didn't vote,so I don't know who's winning.

I would point out that Merry could have remained safely at Dunharrow, Pippin at Minas Tirith. They didn't.

One more thing about Fatty--now that the editors have taken away his pony,he has to walk all the way to the hedge (and back),while the others ride.

No respect, I tell ya! No respect at all!

We have no lesser authority than Leonard Nimoy for telling us that it was Bilbo… Bilbo Baggins… the bravest little hobbit of them all.

But is this true?

Sure he:
  • fought with the Goblins!
  • He battled a Troll!
  • He riddled with Gollum!
  • A magic ring he stole!
  • He was chased by wolves
  • Lost in the forest
  • Escaped in a barrel from the elf-king's halls
Brave indeed. But was he the bravest? Some might say that Frodo – having been pierced by a Morgul Blade and so knowing what he faced – still taking the Ring to Orodruin was in fact the bravest little Hobbit of them all.

Maybe.

Merry and Pippin were both, in their own ways, very brave.

But maybe it was another – how about Fatty Bolger? He knew that bad things were coming for Frodo – and yet he stayed behind as "bait" to allow Frodo and the others to get a head start. That's brave.

What do you think?
