Flash animation - click below for the two parts. WARNING: Contains foul language, hobbit abuse.
The first part was mildly funny.. Part 2 was lame.
"I still say it's f---ing retarded."
I love the image of Sauron, Dark Lord of Mordor, humming "Doo dee doo..."
I hear ya.
How about Frodo's face during the "Lauch"?
"Tell 'em Boromir sent ya."
"What it really needs is a guidance system!"
Something so immature shouldn't be so funny, but it is.
Spoken like an artilleryman.
"Get on the catapult short stuff!"
That would be said in artillery as well.
Inquiring minds really want to know why they didn't have one of the ****ing eagles drop it in the lava.
Of course, that would have been a remarkably short and dull story.
Thank G*d I wasn't eating or drinking anything while I watched it!
Oh G-d...because with the Eye intact the eagles couldn't enter Mordor but after it was destroyed by destroying the Ring they were free to move and don't ask me how Gollum was able to steal the freaking Ring back from Sauron because I don't know...
I feel like such a geek.
Sauron lost the Ring more than 2000 years before Smeagol/Gollum was born.
Couldn't one of the Eagles have done a low-altitude sneak in? :)
Mordor was probably pretty low on AAA.
Geek and proud.
You're right about the Ring. I meant the Nine torturing Gollum in Mordor, and him escaping.
I don't think ground shadowing works the same way for magic as it does for radar. Also, given the elevation of the Eye it was effectively an AWACS system, and the Nine plus their wyrms represented a pretty effect air intercept capability.
