Eating dry pancakes is a true test of a Hobbet's ability to withstand adversity.
Potty decides to partake in the challenge in solidarity with the newcomers (even though he's already proven his worth in the dungeon). The keen-wah pancakes are coarse in texture with a nutty flavor. Potty looks a little green and complains, "Oh dear, oh dear!" but manages to choke down his share.
Kiplyn struggles with his dry stack, but in the end, finishes with room to spare. What's for dessert?
Dame Simonetta approaches the task meticulously, with decorum and dignity. She cuts the pancakes properly (with a knife, not with the edge of her fork) into tidy bite sized pieces. Potty and Kip have already put down their forks in victory, but Simonetta is only half done. No matter; she plugs away methodically, pacing herself on track to an easy finish. With confidence, she works her way down to the last pancake. Everything is going exactly according to plan until suddenly, what is this? Simonetta reaches her limit, and couldn't possibly eat another bite. There, in the middle of her plate, is a neatly trimmed square of pancake, the size of a postage stamp. She looks down at the last bite and just can't. Her head is swimming and her pulse is racing. This challenge was supposed to be in her "wheelhouse." What happened?
Everyone can see Simonetta's last piece of pancake sitting on the plate. What next, Hobbitses?
Don't try this at home, kids! Pancake eating contests are dangerous.
