Galadriel: And what gift would suit you, master dwarf?
Gimli: if it’s not too much, I ask the lady for a single strand of hair.
Galadriel: I shall grant you 3 hairs, master dwarf.
Sam: Hey, can iIexchange this box of dirt for some hair, too?
Merry and Pippin: Us too! We’d love a few strands, if you please.
Aragorn: I’ll take 4.
Legolas: I already have a bow, so can I have trade the one you gave me for 6 strands?
Frodo: I’m the ringbearer so I think I deserve at least 10 hairs.
As a Took, Pippin continued the family tradition of being wealthy, by opening Middle Earth’s first all-you-can-eat-buffet in Gondor. It was incredibly successful.
Pippin: I couldn’t think of e-lessar person to be king!
King Aragorn: that’s the 10th time you’ve made that joke.
Unsurprisingly, the tale of Pippin tossing a stone down a well and waking the Balrog evolved and changed until future generations said that he purposefully woke it to ask direction out of Moria.
Me: The Perfect Solution Fallacy occurs when a solution should be rejected because some part of the problem would still exist after it were implemented. It’s an example of black or white thinking. An example of it would be when Gandalf says that Glorfindel shouldn’t be in the Fellowship because not even he could storm Mordor, so they might as well take Pippin instead.
My debate professor: look, I’m going to give you a B+ for this presentation but you need to start using examples that aren’t from the Lord of the Rings.
