I think the idea of fiction and fantasy is beyond you.

Hilarious... but I agree with #22: Go-Go Gadget Arrow Sprouter.
Legolas shoots arrow after arrow at his enemies, and yet the number of arrows in his quiver never decreases. I guess elves have glands on their back that secrete arrows.

That was an easy glitch to avoid or explain.

I have no idea if it's any good or not, but I thought I'd mention there's a new LotR parody out. Saw it on Amazon when I went looking for BotR.

Looks AWESOME!

LOL, I was taking it seriously for the first few complaints. I still am assuming that it is satire. If it's not... READ THE BOOKS STUPID. Although I can't wait to look for the tennis shoes.

It is just as serious as The Onion and the Clinton's patriotism.

At least she didn't claim to be a relative or close friend of Boromir and shame us for joking about Boromir pincushions!

Oops. Troll banned. Dang it.

I must say, I was offended when after all that time they never did hang Bilbo for a jewel thief. It's sending a poor moral message to our young people, that's what it is...

Dear A.J.Armitage
you clear are mis informed for in the 1940's. The movies were not writ-in by peter jackson. Hopefully your joking, because i would say you living under a rock because you haven't heard of fiction or JRRTolkien. Good job! do some research o and thank your website from protecting you from a more aggressive response. do some research for your own dignity, and self respect.

After the conclusion of the War of Wrath, Manwë determined that the surviving Half-elven would have their choice of fates: to be counted as Elves, and granted eternal life in the Undying Lands; or to be counted as mortals, and granted the ineffable Gift of Men. This choice could be delayed, although not indefinitely.
Elrond and Arwen are half-elven
Elrond chose to be counted among the Elves, serving in the household of Gil-galad until the end of the Second Age, and founding Rivendell—haven of the Peredhil—in the Third. He married the Elf Celebrían, daughter of Celeborn and Galadriel, and sailed into the West at the conclusion of the War of the Ring.
Arwen chose a mortal life so she could be with Aragon.
marrying Aragorn II Elessar, king of the Reunited Kingdom, and died alone at the age of 2,901 years, grieving the brevity of her mortal happiness. Their son Eldarion and their daughters were not counted as Half-elven, but rather as Dúnedain restored.

Just a thought,...

Watch Clerks 2, (skit on LOTR and Star Wars

Read Bored of the Rings (Harvard Lampoon)

may be out of print, but great.

Enjoy more fiber in your diet.

What a hoot! Thanks for posting this!

And for more reasons to hate LotR, check out this YouTube cut, from the movie “Clerks 2.” Please note, this is NOT safe for work, and it’s extremely rude, crude, and socially unacceptable. And funny; very, very funny.

I thought I had seen this somewhere before... Little did I know that I was responding to a nearly 8 year old thread!

But if you’re not offended easily, be sure to check out the YouTube clip I linked!

I found myself laughing about this all over again.

LOL! I wasn’t sure if it was satire until I made it a third of the way through.

I would gladly pay to see a version of the LOTR with Walken, Campbell, Diesel and a monkey!
