Here is an original Lord of the Rings riddle/joke that I came up with:
 
"What is the legal drinking age in Middle Earth?"

Here's one I came up with a while ago:

"Why is Gandalf good at golf?"

not sure but I would guess it would have something to do with "eagles"

Yeah.

Because he can always get a couple of eagles.

Why can you never have a coin with a picture of a dwarf on it?

Okay I'm not sure what hint I can give here, but... it's based on a line from the book / film.

You can toss a coin, but NOBODY tosses a dwarf. :-D

Hahaha nice one!!!

One I just thought up:

They grind and they boil,
So that many may toil,
As the lights of night fade,
Much money they're paid.


Who are they?

Bakers?

They grind the wheat to make flour and I’m sure some boiling gets done at some point in proceedings, even if just to make their tea :-)
Others who toil? Hmm maybe the front of shop staff who sell the bread.
They work in the early hours of the morning.
