The Ning Nong Man - Prelude
He covered about a league that day, and he managed to avoid tree trunks but kept running into mousy Oliphants and cute, lovable hamsters (Poor hamsters, he wasn't a sight for sore eyes, he was the one that made them sore in the first place!) He got away from the people that tried to take him hostage by singing for them, they couldn't wait to let him go!
That night he camped by a tree and slept upside down. (I said he was queer!) That morning, he woke and began to weave his way in and out of the tree branches. (Don't ask me how he did that!)
Later that day he was wandering through the firlds of the Shire and ran into, (literally!) guess who? PIPPIN AND MERRY!
