Okay, two things.
First, for a REALLY funny set of books, the Enchanted Forest quartet by Patricia Wrede. You'll be laughing too hard too read them aloud. And secondly, the reason Tolkiens book took so much from other cultures is he was only interested in creating a medium for his conlangs. He was so involved in those, he had no time to be original with the setting.
