Even for The Onion, that's a deeply odd story. / [In reply to] Can't Post

 

Celebrimbor: "Pretty rings..."
Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."
Men: "Pretty rings..."
Sauron: "Mine's better."

"Ah, how ironic, the addictive qualities of Sauron’s master weapon led to its own destruction. Which just goes to show, kids - if you want two small and noble souls to succeed on a mission of dire importance... send an evil-minded beggar with them too." - Gandalf's Diaries, final par, by Ufthak.

I concur [In reply to] Can't Post

There are some things that I just don't find funny.

They are probably looking to cash in on the publicity. If you saw this adverted, would you click? Probably!!

Call me Rem, and remember, not all who ramble are lost...Uh...where was I?

I too concur [In reply to] Can't Post

There were a few lines I liked:
Starving meaning only one breakfast per day, and the diary in Adūnaic
But those were just side comments. Overall, I found it simply disturbing


..The land of long-forgotten name:
......no man may ever anchor near;
..No steering star his hope may aim,
......for nether Night its marches drear,
..And waters wide no sail may tame,
......with shores encircled dark and sheer.

..O! Haven where my heart would be!
......the waves beat upon thy bar
..For ever echo endlessly,
......when longing leads thy thought afar

Me too. Some things, [In reply to] Can't Post

I believe, are simply too horrible--and too real--to be funny. Would like a heavily edited version perhaps.
