Thermobaric Bomb Destroys Hobbit Hole

Thermobaric Bomb Destroys Hobbit Hole

In a shocking development from Down Under, New Zealand's Air Force today used a thermobaric bomb to destroy the "Hobbit Hole" recently dug in Wellington.

In a statement, the acting NZ Defence Minister, known simply as "GuillermoX", said "The Ministry hopes this will serve as a warning to all those who build such caves to conceal the terrorists in our country."
He added, "Can anyone else look at the sun and see anything?"

Carl Gifford, a stonemason from Wellington, says he used a 10-tonne digger to make the hole.
Claims Mr Gifford, "I just got done building the chimney and lantern on top! I wasn't hurting anybody, honestly!"

The house was a part of a series of stonework mounds, designs and sculptures dotted around his land, until they were all destroyed this evening.

Mr Gifford was reported to have barely escaped through a dimensional door with his life.
The fate of any Hobbits, Orcs, Elves, moose, cheese lovers, alien pirates or even terrorists who did not escape the Hole is currently unknown.
Lord of the Rings fans were reportedly NOT amused.

Disclaimer:
Moderators and FReepers,
This is HUMOR. Humor-impaired LOTR fans should stay in their Hobbit Hole.
Further, GuillermoX has not endorsed this thread in any way.
Please do not flame Constitution Day. He is only joking.
He is only having a bit of fun and does not want to kill the Hobbit Hole thread...
maybe just injure it a little.

I'm a Lord of the Rings fan (the books, not the movie) and I think it's very amusing.

I'm am so glad someone had the gumption to finally get rid of that hobbit hole. I believe it was a part of the axil of evil.

I was surprised that NZ was the one to finally do it!

I think it was actually the origin of the Axis of Evil.

LOL........that's good!

I've been wondering what could possibly be sustaining those two threads for weeks now! I mean, yah, they're interesting, but how could they both get above 2,000 posts each? LOL

This is a good "tounge in cheek" commentary on that very fact, imo. hehe

They'll probably use a bunker-buster on that one.

I am reporting now from the Hobbit Hole, where contrary to earlier reports, we are just fine, and have in fact not been bombed.

I did burn some seed-cakes earlier, so if you saw some smoke, that may have been it!
