  • Joking about Tolkien

    Last days I was joking with a friend of mine about the names of Tolkien's characters.
    She said that often they are similar to drugs' name, for instance:
    Saruman 500. Against headache.
    Legolas Plus. Pills or suppositories.
    etc ...this game could goes on to the infinity...

    Reminds me of the old Harvard Lampoon book I read in Jr. High entitled Bored of the Rings which had such classic modifcations of Tolkien names as Frito (Frodo), Dildo (Bilbo), and Goddamn (Gollum). Ah, nostalgia!

      Bored of the Rings was indeed an early antitoxin. My favorite name was Serutan (for Saruman). Sting was also a .357 magnum. Funniest bit I recall was Goodgulp saying:
      "It was pity that stayed his hand."
      "Yeah. Pity he ran out of bullets!"

      If there's Uruk-Hai, are there Uruk-Low?
      Do they vacation at Bali-Hai?
      Or just get Hai?

        "Frito picked up one of the heavy, discarded maces and calmy proceeded to bash some heads in." Loved that. Also the parts about a sword "deftly parting his hair to the navel" or "trimming the fingernails to the elbow."

        As far as Hieronymus' game goes, perhaps a dose of Tonic of Bombadil would help with laryngitis?

            One of the best tales I read was "After the Last Elf Died" by Harry Turtledove, anthologized in Weird Tales. Very cool. Look it up!

                              Right, so that's the T-shirt/coffee mug/bumper sticker/jigsaw/etc. franchise sorted then.

                              Nice going' Lem'.
