    I'm sure many of you have read the classic novel The Hobbit by Tolkien. For those of you who aren't framiliar with the book...let me explain.

    Bilbo Baggins finds "The Ring" in a cave inhabited by Gollum. Gollum was the current owner of the ring. Gollum finds Bilbo and in an attempt to get out Bilbo and Gollum have a riddle war if you will...Bilbo being incredibly sceevy asks Gollum the riddle..."What is in my pocket!?" This of course isn't even a riddle and depending on the person can be almost impossible to guess.

    The Riddle: I have decided to ask all you Hubbers the same riddle..."What is in my pocket??". I have placed three different items in my pocket and now you have to guess them! Not at the same time but if you could that would be creepy haha.

    Rules: There are none! Ask as many times as you want and ask the most ridiculous things to keep things funny =p.

    I will give out a hint for one of the three items every 100 replies so keep your guesses pouring in! I will notify you guys if someone guesses one of the items correctly so dont worry haha.

    Opening Clue: One of the items is noticebly Canadian.

    Good Luck!

            Doubles as a pet leash, and oh look - hot or cold drink coaster, too!

            smile

            You're SURE there's not a slinky in your pocket?

            Cheap slinky when I was a kid - bunch of paperclips linked together... didn't work very well but when I was a kid, so many years ago, we didn't KNOW a slinky was supposed to walk down the stairs...

            This response is too long already huh?
