Put them all together it spells Pippin Took
The bravest Took of them all
How Bout that Pippin
How bout that Pippin
Ain't he a ticket,
Eatin them lembas
Out in the thicket,
Eatin his first breakest
Whining for a second one too,
Not even mid-mornin yet
And he's plannin rabbit stew,
On an empty stomach
Pip has an inclination,
To cause Master Gandalf,
Loads of extra irritation,
How Pip survived the war
No one really knows,
He managed to escape disaster
By his hairy little toes.
Report Card of Peregrin Took: Middle-Earth Geography
Middle-Earth Geography D-
Peregrin is a charming but irresponsible student who finds it challenging to remain focused on his lessons. He is easily distracted and sometimes disrupts other students by socializing at inappropriate times. In his written work, Peregrin is a minimalist who seldom fully supports his ideas with relevant or sufficient evidence. In addition, he jumps to conclusions and frequently blurts out incorrect answers. Peregrin lost significant marks by coming to class with assignments not completed as he was ‘‘up to mischief’’ instead. Although he is well liked by his fellow students, Peregrin does not fully participate in group assignments, tending to let others do the bulk of the work. Marks cannot be assigned for entertaining his other group members, however much they enjoy it. He would benefit from studying his map lessons more thoroughly as he failed his recent test on Middle-Earth Geography. He has made excellent progress in fencing and surviving without second breakfast recently; however, as these are not part of the Geography curriculum, they did not significantly affect his mark. I look forward to a more concerted effort from Peregrin next term.

Pippin Talk: Favorite lines of Pippin’s from FotR
"Aaaaaaaaaah!" Pip's yell when the stolen firework goes off inside the tent; did you hear Dom's comments on that in "Cameras in Middle-Earth"?
"...is a mug of beer inside this Took!" No comment!
"Frodo! Merry, it's Frodo Baggins!" I just love his way of talking there.
"What's going on?" Just before the Ringwraith appears near Buckleberry Ferry. Pippin sounds exhausted and completely clueless.
"What's that? (...) It comes in pints? I'm getting one!"
"Steady on!" So funny in such a serious situation...
"We had one, yes. What about second breakfast?" His face afterwards speaks even more!
"That's nice! Ash on my tomatoes!" If he had yelled a little louder, they might have heard him in Bree!
"Nothing's happening." "What you're going to do, then?" Testing the wizard's patience without intending it...just cute.
”Merry? I’m hungry.”
