'Well, I never thought I'd see the day when we hobbits would have these graceful old Elves beat, but it seems this is just such a day! This will make a grand story at the Ivy Bush.

'As you can imagine, we have many farms and gardens in the Shire, and naturally we have shrews to pester us as well. But I guarantee you that even the simplest hobbit has more wisdom in dealing with shrews than all these Elves combined!

'Don't believe me? Go talk to the farmers around Hobbiton and Michel Delving! See what happens when shrews dare to pester them! Then you can come back and tell these poor hapless Elves what you've learned.'


The Elves of Duillond have been told that the farmers of the Shire have infinitely more wisdom when it comes to dealing with garden pests.
