Revision as of 18:09, 13 March 2010 by 68.50.1.87 (Talk)

One Gross is a measurement equal to 144 of something (a dozen dozens). It is used at present time and wasn't invented by J.R.R. Tolkien but one gross was the amount of people invited to Bilbo's Birthday Party. However, when Bilbo called them thus, many were insulted as the term "gross" was not used properly on people (or hobbits).
