Ways to recognise Tolkien fans in their natural habitat, pt.1

Since the introduction of Tolkien into mainstream culture, the Tolkien fan has made an astonishing comeback. Since a recent survey has shown that many lit-life watchers are particularly interested in this particular species of literary fan, we have decided to provide a series of pointers that might help you spot this illusive creature.

Tolkien fans can easily be mistaken for the general public. They often pursue professions similar to those characteristic of the vast majority of the general public, and they are a very varied species. There are size and colour variations as well as differences in the calls and sounds these creatures make. But, don't despair, our useful tips should help you in identifying Tolkien fans in their natural habitat.

Today's pointer:

If two Tolkien fans meet each other, they often exchange terrible puns. These puns can be quite disconcerting, but do not generally lead to permanent damage. But the chance to see a Tolkien fan may be worth the minor discomfort to you.
