“Why did you and your folk three times try to attack my people at their merrymaking?” asked the king.
“We did not attack them,” answered Thorin; “we came to beg, because we were starving.”
“Where are your friends now, and what are they doing?”
“I don’t know, but I expect starving in the forest.”
“What were you doing in the forest?”
“Looking for food and drink, because we were starving.”
“But what brought you into the forest at all?” asked the king angrily.
At that Thorin shut his mouth and would not say another word.
~The Hobbit, Chapter 8: Flies and Spiders
Go ahead… Tell me you were starving… ONE MORE GODDAMN TIME…
I’m sorry, but this scene just cracks me up every time I read it, I can’t even ;P
So, I didn’t get a lot of walking done, but at least we’re imprisoned now, so YAY! Now we just have to escape and convince Laketown to take us in. We can do this, right? Yeah, we can totally do this 🙂
