I came across this http://km-515.livejournal.com/1042.html

I quite like the idea. Opinions?

He sounds like a really awesome guy. I didn't read it all but I skimmed it.

Nice theory but I don't know enough about the lore of LOTR to pass judgement.

I totally didn't post this on facebook yesterday....

But it's an interesting theory, not sure if Tolkien intended for this interpretation though (similar to the 'is dumbledore really ron' theory)

This is kind of like the Grandpa Joe is evil stuff, of which I am a firm believer. :P

On reflection

I quite like the Ron-Dumbledore thing but I'm utterly unconvinced the Grandpa Joe thing.
The Tom Bombadil thing is, I think, much more compelling than either of those though.

But Gramps spent 20 years in a bed making his daughter wipe his rear when he could dance the whole time! :P

Maybe he was in to that armadillo.

Exactly! That's why he was evil.

I did read through the link, maybe that's one of the reasons he's lecherous and therefore, evil.

I read the Star Wars one, which I like better. I haven't read the LotR books so I really have no idea who this Tom Bombadil is.
