This scene in Lord of the Rings is filled with a series of delightful riddles as Bilbo Baggin's challenges Gollum to a dual of wits. Bilbo wagers that Gollum show him out of the cave should he win and the riddles and questions exchanged are wonderful. So wonderful that we plan to make a T-shirt for each and every riddle they exchange. So check out the site for more!
This riddle T-shirt will catch some serious attention and strike up some great conversations with another intelligent, well-read creatures at the bar. The riddle is an oldie, but a goodie. Here it is;
"Thirty white horses on a red hill, first champ, then stamp, and then stand still."
From there, feel free to award bonus points if onlookers can also work to name the movie (easy) or who won the riddle challenge between Bilbo and Gollum (also easy). HOWEVER, if someone should know what Gollum wanted Bilbo to do if he won, you've officially found a friend and fellow Lord of the Rings buff. You should likely challenge them RIGHT THEN AN THERE to Lord of the Rings trivia. Winner buys the other one a beer.
ANSWER: Gollum wanted Bilbo to eat a toad.
This T-shirt is made of a heavier cotton, but is still soft and comfy. You'll enjoy the double stitching on the neckline and sleeves.
