You didn't get a drink or anything to eat at the theater--no matter how hungry you were--just so you wouldn't have to go to the bathroom during the movie. ~Meluivain Gwiwileth~  (My Father could learn a thing or two from this one. I told him not to get the jumbo drink, but did he listen? Noooo...Sheesh!)

76. ...you plan on sharpening the sword and using it, once you get it...  ~Meluivain Gwiwileth~ (But he's getting the Shards of Narsil, I believe, so it would be silly to sharpen it...unless you plan running around with only the hilt and a foot and a half of blade.)

77. You commonly use the phrase "Since the First Age" in place of "for a really long time".  ~Meluivain Gwiwileth~

78. You think that your vice principal is the Mouth of Sauron.  ~Meluivain Gwiwileth~ (And yet in all of my school experiences, it is the Vice Principal who is the more evil of the leaders...hmmm...)

79. You mutter the "One Ring" rhyme (in the Black Speech) to yourself whenever you get mad.  ~Meluivain Gwiwileth~ (Sounds more satisfying than counting to ten!)

87. You go on rants over characters that were left out of the movie (RIP Tom Bombadil, Glodberry, Radgast the Brown and Glorfindel) ~Nueme~ (Taken part in many, fought on both sides, but alway go back to the book...)

88. You have fought over how to spell Kazad-dum (me and a friend against our equally obsessed teacher) ~Nueme~ (Heck, I never even tried. I'm calm like that.)

89. You love to bag groceries to refer to yourself as Master Baggins (*looks away*....what?) ~Nueme~ (Hmmm...intriguing.)

90. You seriously contemplated taking the month long course on Tolkien's life works over a course for your major... (*whistles and looks away* Wait, what am I talking about, I took an Anglo-Saxon Literature course!)

91. You take it anyway... (If only if only.)

92. You want to take a course with a certain Prof at your school because he is a Tolkien fanatic... (I get to! He is so cool!)

93. You listen intently to your friend who made it into the Tolkien course to hear really neat stuff... (The things you learn...)

94. You're reading Beowulf for whatever reason and begin to realize the similarities between the Anglo-Saxon Age culture and the people of Rohan... (It's freaky weird until you realize that Tolkien did a translation of Beowulf.)

95. You begin recognizing certain lines from Beowulf that are in LotR... (Kinda strange but neato.)

96. You know the date of the release of Tolkien's translation of Beowulf and constantly profess to all who will listen (and many who won't) that you'll be first in line... (This is that Prof I mentioned.)

97. When praying in front of class (Christian College kids.) you periodically substitute Iluvatar for God... (Yeah, that freaks me out a bit too.)

98. You teach a course strictly on this material... (He's cool...but still a tad off.)

99. You will only buy certain versions of the books (such as Houghton-Mifflin) because of where the money goes... (This Prof does this because the cash goes to the Tolkien family or a Tolkien foundation or something...)

100. You break your 'cut back on the books' packing rule because you suddenly have the urge to go through the series and subsequent follow-ups... (Dernitall, I was doing so well too.)

Last one for ever. (Even when I add more):
Some episodes of his comic Real Life, from Greg Dean. If you don't know it, shame. Go read it.
Hey! If it starts glowing blue...
Well, he told you it got heavier...
Gandalf comes BACK?!
Hobbity goodness!
Unfortunately these are like the ONLY stinkin LotR comics he did. Yet, that's okay. He did plenty of other funny ones. TRUST me...

And another random comic I found:
There are fouler things than orcs...
