    Post Bless my bark!

    From Lord of the Rings Spoof Page

    Peregrin-Pip looks over there.

    And at the water he does stare.
    He sees a thing. The round thing glows.
    He tip-toes over on his toes.
    Itís a spying stone. Itís big and round.
    He picks it up from off the ground.
    TREEBEARD: Bless my bark! Oh dear! Oh dear!
    I think I need to drink a beer!

    tip-toes = walks on tip-toe

    bark = the surface covering of a tree. [Treebeard is of course a mobile tre]

    I thought that it was a nice expression.

    Re: Bless my bark!

    It's merely an exclamation - a variant of "Bless my soul!" or "Bless my cotton socks". The author is thinking in terms of what a tree might say.
