'Oh, collecting stories about Bilbo 'Big-shot' Baggins, eh? More than enough of those to go around to be sure.
'Luckily for you, I happen to know the truth of the matter of that odd disappearing act he pulled at his party, yes I do!'
Dudo Chubb has agreed to share a story about Bilbo Baggins and his adventures.
Listen to Dudo Chubb's story.
- Dudo Chubb: 'As I was saying, here's what happened at that birthday party of Bilbo's.
- 'You see, when he was on his adventures, he met up with a pile of dwarves! Yes dwarves! Anybody who knows anything knows that some of them dwarves got mighty peculiar after losing their home in the mountains far off all that long time ago.
- 'Since then, stories say, some of them been known to be a roaming band doing nearly anything to squeak by, and that would breed loose morals if you ask me! Assuming they ever had any to start with, can't ever be sure with people not of the Shire, no you cannot!
- 'I heard that one of these dwarves helped Bilbo dig a complex of tunnels under Bag End, and he simply popped down into these at an opportune moment! Goodness only knows what he's been up to since, but you can bet it's something no respectable hobbit would be caught doing!'
