Saturday Word Play- Lord of the Rings Rebus

Today's Saturday Word Play features rebus, or picture puzzles. Figure out what the picture is, add or subtract the letters specified to spell characters from J.R.R. Tolkien's classic Lord of the Rings. For instance, If I gave you this picture:

you'd figure out that "afro"-a= fro, "doe"-e= do, and you'd combine them to get "Frodo."

As always, feel free to do all ten at home, but only answer one in the comment section. That way, 10 people can play along.

# 10 is Bilbo. Frodo is the only other one I got. It's my dog's name and although I read The Hobbit many years ago, I never read any other Tolkein. Not my cup of tea. But this should be a fun one for LOR readers.

John Mutford said...

Gypsysmom: That's correct. And that makes all 10 answers, in record time.

It's just as well that google reader only posted you today, Monday, because I wouldn't have got any of those.
Do you make all these up? Very impressive.

Have a great trip! I think it's like the Maritimes and Atlantic Canada - when you live here, you definitely know the difference, but it all looks the same from far away.

That number 2 really had me stumped. I would never have though of Search and Rescue - SAR

I was thinking
heli, no,
copter, no,
chopper, no,

Please do more of those picture puzzles. I like them.
