Bombur the Hungry
"Bombur," Thorin said cautiously, "I don't feel altogether comfortable bringing you along. You have a voracious appetite, and that, among other things, causes frequent problems for the rest of us."
"But I must go, Thorin!" implored Bombur, "I'm sure the food will be tasty, and I don't want my brother and cousin to have all the fun!"
"This journey isn't going to be 'fun', Bombur," said Thorin, "But if you're sure you can prove yourself, I suppose I'll let you come."
"Excellent! Thank you, Thorin!" Bombur exclaimed, "And nobody better make me late for dinner!"
That's what I'm afraid of.
