You stand at the edge of the ocean and scream at the foam and waves.."YOU SHALL NOT PASS."

You make up a dialogue for Merry and Pippin about what they were doing while waiting for Frodo at the meeting of the Council of Elrond.

You give character names to each of your friends and only refer to them as the character..in notes, etc.

You insult people with "Stupid Fat Hobbit."
