It is a truth universally acknowledged that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but any Tolkien reader worth their salt knows that the real fun happens at second breakfast. Sure, “elevensies” rolls off the tongue more easily, but we all know that’s basically brunch. At second breakfast, you’ve had your coffee and are awake enough to enjoy the culinary experience, and the whole day stretches before you.

The folks at Houghton Mifflin Harcourt are totally on board with this second breakfast business, so they created these awesome “Second breakfast is the best breakfast” mugs. And they’ve generously given us 5 to give away!

Want one? (You know you do.) Write an alternate tagline to The Hobbit (the original is “There and Back Again”) using the form below. We’ll pick the five best (funniest, most fitting) and reward you with your very own hobbitsy mug. Entries accepted Wednesday, September 12 at 11:59pm Eastern.
