A response to the "Telling Funny Stories" challenge, this one involves the fellowship walking into Hollin, and needing something to cheer themselves up.

Characters include Boromir, Aragorn, Frodo, Sam, Merry, Pippin, Gimli, Legolas and Gandalf, and I think I manage to mention Bill the Pony as well. In addition, there's a bit of a mention of Bree (hey, without the mention of Bree, how would you know it was one of my stories?).
