I said halfling instead of tween. Judges? One source says that halfling was originally used for awkward adolescents so it seems right to me but definitely not what they were going for.
Nope. “Halfling” in Tolkien is the formal name used for hobbits in the “high” cultures up such as the Elves and the Men of the West. “Tween” refers to a hobbit in his/her careless twenties before the “coming of age” at 33.
Wow, that's a pretty deep cut for Jeopardy.
I think they expected us to know the term for humans that age rather than have advanced hobbit knowledge. :D
Agree the human angle is a WECIB, but if you also know the Tolkien side of the question, there’s no hesitation.
But I also agree the Tolkien side is pretty deep in Hobbit/LOTR arcana; I’m only aware of it being mentioned once in the entire corpus, early in Chapter 1 of “Fellowship”, in the run up to Bilbo’s party. LOTR trivia is a wheelhouse category for me though.

If you listen to "I Feel For You" even once, you'll never forget who sang it :lol:
