So we have this theory that Tolkien must have magically discovered the land of Middle Earth and became part of their culture. He probably traveled all around and mastered the languages. He might have even been the tenth member of the Fellowship and stole Bilbo and Frodo’s biography about their adventures and took it as his own. That little shit. (Just kidding Tolkien, we love you).

Lastly, you’re probably wondering why we chose Thranduil (of all the elves) to spill the secrets of Middle Earth? Becuase Thranduil is a babe. I mean who doesn’t want to party with Thranduil?

Happy Birthday J. R. R. Tolkien.
