FINNALY! THE TRUTH COMES OUT!

“The only moral it is possible to draw from this story is that one should never throw the letter Q into a privet bush, but unfortunately there are times when it is unavoidable.”
-Douglas Adams, The Restaurant At the End of the Universe

XD!

Explanation time:

I live near the town where ol' Marty's house is and they recently put up a statue of him. My dad and I saw a picture in the paper and were like “OHEMEFFGEEBILBO!”

One possible explanation occurs to me, apart from simple coincidence: The look of Bilbo for the movie could've been based on an old pic of Van Buren. ;)

I used to live near a famous poet in Indiana, I think his name was Thayer something… anyways, he named his dog after the street he lived on so he wouldn't forget what street he lived on.

And while that has absolutely NOTHING to do with this discussion, I don't get a lot of opportunities to tell that story. D:

The only possible reason for this is:
Bilbo Baggins can travel through time!

And across the border between fiction and reality!

No, I will not let this thread stay dead.

Bilbo obviously got Leonard Nimoy to take him back through time. And across dimensions or whatever.

Nope. He used Time Lincoln.

Those presidential types stick together!
