HOBBITS ARE BAD FOR YOUR HEALTH!!!

"In fact, it has been remarked by some that Hobbits real passion is for food...a rather unfair observation as we have also developed a keen interest in the brewing of ales and the smoking of pipe-weed...." (Concerning Hobbit)


T
olkien's Lord of the Rings trilogy has been called into question by UK based health campaigners because of the smoking habits of the hobbits. Speaking from their lair on Mount Doom, the organisation are hoping to launch a legal case to have the book categorised as, For Adults Only and for it be to outlawed for the book to be sold to those under the age of 21.


This doesn't surprise me given the powers of the hysterical anti-smoking brigade. Will Sherlock Holmes be next? And how long before they attack old films that depict characters smoking? I'm going to have a pipe of Kentucky Nougat while I contemplate that.

Please tell me this is a joke.

Afraid it's no joke - the article I read said that because of the smoking LOTR should only be on sale in specialist adult shops. Alongside the type of films Jacqui Smith's husband likes to watch.

Are these people on the same planet? Maybe they should get a proper job.
