Happy Bilbo Baggins Day

Today is, according to The Lord of the Rings, the birthday of Bilbo Baggins. Bilbo is not supposed to have had a remarkable birth, but his birthday is remarkable in the story as the day when Bilbo freely relinquishes possession of the Ring of Power.

What are the best analogues to Bilbo’s ring, in our time? I’m thinking crude oil… we just can’t let it go, my precious.

The film retelling the story of how Bilbo got the ring in the first place, The Hobbit, is now in the early stages of production.
