LOL! Pippin certainly does owe Merry a few, and he's gotten him back and then some! This is great! I love Merry's insistance that the sheep were dancing, and his comments to the sheep after the others are gone. Thanks for the laugh!

Author Reply: I'm glad you liked it. It's totally impossible but if anyone could teach sheep to dance, it would be Pippin. hehehe
Thank you for laughing!

Ent draught! Lucky for Pippin they just decided to relocate and this didn't turn into attack of the killer tomatoes! LOL! I love Pippin's logic - the ent draught made him and Merry taller, so it would make the tomatoes taller - while completely overlooking the other side effect because he and Merry could already walk!

Author Reply: Yeah, Pip didn't think this through. Ent draught on Shire plants! Poor Frodo will have to do without tomatoes this year. Thanks for reading!

Love it! Oh man, or I should say, oh, hobbit, pulling up stakes indeed! I was really tested not to laugh out loud since I am reading this at the library but how wonderful. Love how Sam related the little plant not wanting to be left behind and how they trudged down the road and Pippin wanting to follow and Frodo wondering whether it was a good morning or not. Great, great stuff!

Namarie, God bless, Antane :)

Author Reply: Poor Sam had a very unusual gardening problem here. I'm glad you enjoyed this one. I really do wonder what Ent draught would do to regular plants. Thanks for reading and for the lovely review!

I shall never look at sheep in quite the same way again (or tomatoes for that matter)! I shall be picturing them dancing.

I'm wondering if Merry and Frodo will ever find out the truth - and will they take their revenge?

*still giggling*

Author Reply: A great way to combine the two fics would be if they came across the tomatoes at some point and *they* were dancing. LOL
Your review made me think of that.
Ah, there may very well be revenge at some point. You just never know.
Thanks so much for reviewing! (Now, I am seeing dancing tomato plants!)

I remember reading this somewhere but it was just as hilarious second time round. Trust Pippin to run amok with that Ent draught!
Frodo's reaction was hysterical and as for Merry.........
Brilliant GW

Author Reply: Thank you! I always wonder if it's really a good idea to re-post something that's already out there in another location. It's good to know that you enjoyed reading it a second time here.
Thanks for reviewing this!

I'd leave a review but I am still giggling too hard to make any sense........walking tomatoes...........oh my word............=D

*runs for bathroom*

Author Reply: You can run into the bathroom but you can't hide from walking tomatoes. They have the ability to find you. hehehe
Glad this gave you a giggle and thanks for reading!

Now which sheep dance was it, the sam-baaa, or the rum-baaa? Gosh, that was awful, wasn't it, I'll stop while I'm ahead :D I've seen a poodle dancing at the end of a conga line, so maybe sheep can too. I guess anything is possible if there's a Took involved!

Author Reply: LOL
Oh, thank you for the dance names! Your review is funnier than my story! Bravo! I salute you and command the sheep to do a special dance just in your honor.

"I'll grant you that the middle one isn't too good at it but the little one on the end was very good"

That was when I started laughing out loud, and I haven't stopped since. Wonderful!

Author Reply: I love it when these make people laugh. Thanks for that.

I figure some sheep are just naturally better dancers than others, don't you? : )

VirtuellaReviewed Chapter: 1 on 6/5/2009
Intrigued by the title, I expected a suitably surreal tale, and I was not disappointed. This very funny, and it is even convincing, but at the same time it is indeed a barking mad story! Hahaha!

Author Reply: I tend to be barking mad all of the time. : )

Glad you weren't disappointed. If you see the tomato plants, let me know. : )

It had taken him two full months to teach those sheep to dance but it had been worth it.


This is one of my favourites! Thank you for posting it again :)

So, we had first Sam and then Merry being "pranked" (is that a verb?). And each time Pippin was the prankster.

Next one should be Frodo, right?

Author Reply: You may be right. I haven't really written a prank for Pippin to play on Frodo. Hardly fair as I've let Frodo get off a well-played prank on Pippin before. I might have to give this some thought...

I am so glad to hear that this is one of your favorites. That's so sweet of you to say. Thanks for reading, laughing, and reviewing.
