The Hobbit Catacombs

As a Loremaster, there's one thing that's been kinda buggin' me about hobbits.

What exactly do hobbits do with the corpse when a hobbit dies?

I mean, they do eventually die, y'know, they aren't like the blasted immortal elves who take a boat to America when they die, and I've been all over the Shire, and I've perused all the Hobbit Texts I could find, and I haven't found a single gravestone or mention of any hobbit funerary practices.

I'll be honest, I'm afraid to ask them in person, I keep having these dreams where they lick their fat lips and their eyes suddenly start to glow like the bad guys from Stargate.

Bah, they probably got catacombs somewhere at the bottom of their hobbit mounds, filled with gross little Hobbit Mummies.

Or maybe they dump their creepy little Hobbit Mummies at the "Mathom" House, I should check there next, I s'pose.

Yah, now I'm starting to wonder about all those "spoiled pie" delivery rituals they got, hmm.

Mebbe one of us should check out that Pie Factory.
