The Lord of the Socks parody?

The Lord of the Socks parody? Can't Post

Sometime in the early 2000s, I read a delightfully silly kid-written parody of Galadriel's prologue to Peter Jackson's FOTR and I wondered if anyone else knows about it. It was called "The Lord of the Socks" and I would quite like to find it again if anyone knows where it might be. It involved Socks of Power and had a general laundry theme (Mt. Oxyclean was mentioned, I believe), but mostly I remember laughing my head off at Gollum's indignant response to Galadriel calling his dwelling-place a "cave." For some reason, his line -- "It's an apartment, precious!" has stuck with me most tenaciously over the years and springs to my mind whenever I find myself bleakly staring at the walls and unpacked boxes upon my acquisition of a new residence. Wink

I don't know how widely this piece circulated online, who wrote it, or whether it is still out there. Googling returned a few LOTR parodies involving socks, but I couldn't find this one (and the person who sent it to me no longer remembers the site on which she found it). If this story sounds familiar to you, I would be most appreciative if you would point me in the right direction!

Many thanks!
