Second Breakfast at Denny’s


Is this a cruel trick from Sauron?

In what is certainly one of the most mind-boggling-but-sort-of-logical marketing campaigns we've ever seen, The Hobbit has teamed up with Denny's to bring you Radagast's Red Velvet Pancake Puppies, Bilbo's Berry Smoothie, Gandalf's Gobble Melt, "The Ring" Burger, and Frodo's Pot Roast. 
Yes, Denny's is serving a heart-attack-inducing rendition of Tolkien's Second Breakfast. And we're not sure what the "Lonely Mountain Treasure" is, but we're pretty sure it goes well with a hit of pipeweed.
While I’ve always dreamed of “building my own Hobbit slam” (no, not really – the one that is pictured looks thoroughly disgusting), I’ve always associated the food at Denny’s restaurants more with orcs than with hobbits.

  1. It's a good job the hobbits walked everywhere; they'd need to burn those calories off for sure.

  2. Shouldn't the Shire Sausages be a bit smaller? :-)

  3. Shire sausages and Hobbit holes ... ick. Sounds like Middle-earth porn. :/
