    In selecting a literary parody for a recent book challenge, I found myself struggling a great deal Not one to turn to the classics, I wanted to select a novel that may accentuate a book I read and did not entirely enjoy, while also not choose a parody that had been flogged to death Turning to this piece by Henry Beard and Douglas Kenney, I felt that I might be in good hands I will be the first to admit, Tolkien is not for me Please, gasp

    The clever parts of this so so parody of The Lord of the Rings trilogy were the character names and the map on the first two pages The rest was repetitive and silly nonsense, but the map especially was inspired.At the front of most science fiction or fantasy novels, the author provides a map, usually hand drawn, of their world, the different countries, the rivers, mountains, dragon hoards, what have you from the story Tolkien s was particula

    This is an extremely out to left field parody of a timeless fantasy classic Full of horrible puns, cheap shots and droll tongue in cheekery, it will infuriate purists and delight others.

    There are quite a few funny scenes particularly when the book makes fun of the Tolkien characters by incorporating sex innuendos Imagine Frito Frodo having a hard on with an elf maiden When I picture in my mind the scene with Elijah Wood and Liv Tayler then the scene becomes alive and funny.As a parody, the story follows the same as the one of Tolkien s trilogy The Lord of the Rings minus some details and characters However, you can still follow this

    Unsubtle, gross, stupid, mechanical, but quite often funny My favorite line, which I often quote when hungry This better be food, cause I m gonna eat it And I liked Deus Ex Machina Airlines too And the introduction And the Council of Elrond, where Frito suggests just dropping the Ring down a storm drain, or pawning it and losing the ticket OK, OK, I admit it there is a lot of amusing material.

    Ahhhh the sweet, sweet scent of true comedy.The first time I read this, I nearly soiled myself laughing As with all comedy, repetition kind of diminishes the effect, but there are still laughs to be had Just from the beginning, when Dildo Bugger throws a party for the gluttonous freeloaders of the Sty, and the foists his Magic Ring off on his hapless nephew Frito, you know things can only go wacky.The folks at Harvard Lampoon did a brilliant job here, warp

    Tolkien s works were sacred and beloved in my family when I was growing up, and this Harvard Lampoon lampoon of the trilogy was outright HERESY hilarious heresy, that is The Harvard Lampoon was the late 1960s precursor to National Lampoon of Animal House , Vacation and Van Wilder fame Those boys at Harvard turned over every character, rock, and tree in Tolkien s universe, and exposed their lewd, gross, and satiric underbellies Really, it s a salacious guffaw

    I almost gave this book a 5, and I may yet go back and alter the start count before completing this review It s definitely worth at least a 4.5.I first read this book when loaned a copy by a high school friend Yes, I had read The Hobbit and the three volumes of The Lord of The Rings before picking up this slim, but powerful volume As soon as I read it, I ordered two yes, two copies of the book from a long since gone bookstore Since that day, I try to maintain owner
