So-so parody of Lord of the Rings, written by the people who would later go on to form National Lampoon.Most of the gags and puns are glaringly obvious, so it's not as funny as it could have been.Comes across as pre-Pratchett-esque "look at how clever we are", but with fewer footnotes.

Thou shall never wrong thy masters words, thou shall never amuse yourself with his words 'cause they are the only truth... That seems to be the motto of all those die-hard Tolkien f...

The book has not aged well and its pop culture references are very dated, but it is still quite funny. I read this book when I was 13 and it saved me from a life of Tolkien obsession. Thank you Harvard Lampoon.

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 st...
