Thread: Lord of the Rings Humour: Parodies, Satires and More
   >>
As an aside, I find it amazing how often many "rednecks"and "sport jocks", who supposedly despise gay folk, love to go to fancy dress parties as women!!! And how many get all affectionate and teary when drunk - you should see the antics of some of my really butch mates! Phew! Life is truly an education!
Anyway hopefully we've got it all sorted now and get on with our movie planning?!
I'm sorry, I've been a bit too busy to contribute more to these threads. Hopefully I'll have a bit more time this weekend.
Funny line you quoted but I don't know the movie (movies?) you refer to. I hope they weren't referring to Sam and Frodo, or Merry and Pippin? I'm almost certain they weren't gay.
Hey! I stumbled on some pretty saucy fan fiction once. But I quickly closed my eyes and logged out before any serious damage could be done to my temporal lobe - nor have my sweet innocence stolen!
Anyway, if you want to discuss this kind of stuff, you must go to the THE GAY SHIRE thread which I created for discussions like this...
This, I remind you, is the "Beren and Luthien (The Movie)" thread...
Okay, that's enough digressing for now. Hmmm! Maybe I should start a Tolkien Parody thread and move a few of these posts there.
I'm having so much fun with this, I fear I've lost interest in this thread! Just gagging!
A PARODY THREAD 'would' be fun. Are you allowed to do it?
NB Must get back to those actors!
In any case, above are a few posts originating on "The Beren and Luthien (the movie): directors and actors" thread. Please feel free to continue the conversation.
Post your fave youtube humourous Tolkien links, Jokes, Satires etc. here. Just remember to give us due warning of content, and try to keep it at least PG or R rated, no XXX . Oh, and please don't put any "language" in your actual post, just warn us if it's in your link so people can choose whether to view it or not.
EDIT: Okay, I'm still getting the hang of some of the moderator functions . This should have been the first post . Maybe Beren will know how to fix it when he pops back in after his exams . But I think you get the idea. Have at it .

There are more but I like these.
Well I just remembered the one link rule after finding a whole bunch. Spamming time I guess to show all of them.

I love Gollum's acceptance speech .
By the way Eldorion, I was going to post How LotR Should Have Ended . Great stuff guys (and gals ) .
I agree GB, this is awesome. Thanks for starting this thread!
How do you call an elf without legs?
I suppose, in conclusion, that times change, and considering Tolkien wasn't gay we can only guess the books were meant to be orientated towards a hetrosexual point of view.

P.S. Have you seen the Jack Black spoof, its quite funny
....And there's plenty more where that came from!
In the cases of Frodo's and Sam's relationship, though, I wouldn't say they were gay. Would Sam have married Rosie Cotten if they were really gay? No, I don't think so....
Well it [i:wtnkghl1]is[/i:wtnkghl1] considered gay by a lot of people in the current decade, though I agree that it wasn't what Tolkien intended. I think part of the issue is that the master/servant relationship of the Victorian period and the officer/batman relationship of WWI are both long gone by now so the cultural context of audiences is changing. For people with little familiarity of Tolkien's background and context, I think it is understandable why some might jump to the conclusion that they're gay.
[quote:wtnkghl1]he [Frodo] is always getting carried and lifted around as if he were a child, he also does very little for him self on the quest, he gets help from the fellowship and Sam because he's a Ringbearer but I think today it would be considered going a bit beyond that.[/quote:wtnkghl1]
...not really. Frodo does a good deal on his own, though of course he has help. He makes the decision to leave the Fellowship on his own and doesn't ask Sam to come with him. He's able to assert himself over Gollum an make progress towards 'taming' him into Smeagol, but does not make the mistake of [i:wtnkghl1]trusting[/i:wtnkghl1] Gollum or alienating Sam (unlike the movies). He's able to keep on top of things quite well until they get into Mordor itself when the Ring finally causes him to start despairing. Then, Sam steps in.
[quote:wtnkghl1]P.S. Have you seen the Jack Black spoof, its quite funny [/quote:wtnkghl1]
Yup, I linked to it in an earlier post. I quite like it.
I loved that youtube thingee you put on. Very clever. Very funny. I must work my way through this thread if that's indicative of what folk have posted here!
As to all the 'gay' chat on this thread - it occurs to me that perhaps Sam and Frodo were gay, but because of the times they lived in, they could not fulfill their love (at least no publicly). Perhaps that's why Frodo went to Valinor in the end - to seek relief from his unrequited love. Also, did you notice Rosie Cotton never talks. Is this because in the (secret) gay hobbit world, women can't say anything of value so must remain silent, and yet they still exist physically, having some use as cattle (chattels?) for breeding purposes - you know, for the breeding of more gay children. This is another of Sam's sacrifices, you see, that we did not know about. Sam has chosen to be bi-sexual so the gay line will never die out? If I'm right about this, Tolkien's work is even deeper than I thought. Wow!
[quote="Bullroarer":3q97e02w]I sort of meant to say the sacrefice and challenges he faces are psycological ones as oposed to physical ones.[/quote:3q97e02w]
While I definitely don't want to downplay the psychological challenges Frodo went through, he did sustain physical wounds twice (from the Witch-king on Weathertop and from Shelob). Admittedly though, these were intimately tied to the psychological troubles. I think the physical trek to Mount Doom, especially once in Mordor proper, took its toll as well, but again, this was exacerbated by the psychological effects of the Ring.
[quote:3q97e02w]I suppose I also [i:3q97e02w]meant[/i:3q97e02w] to say that Sam and Frodo [b:3q97e02w]appear[/b:3q97e02w] gay when reading the text in today's world, I was never suggesting they were actually homosexual , I'm not suggesting Sam was [i:3q97e02w]that[/i:3q97e02w] fond of master .[/quote:3q97e02w]
I agree with you on that, I was trying to say the same thing about people reading the text that way in a modern context.
He did sustain the physical injury on weathertop, but had it been a normal blade, i.e. not one from mordor (is it called a morgal blade, i can't remember) he would have recovered much quicker and the effects would have almost completely worn off eventually, the stab he obtains from the blade unfortunately causes other physiological problems as you pointed out. Thinking about it now maybe Frodo does get knocked about a bit but not as severely as the others had i.e. Boromir dies. Frodo also gets stabbed by an Orc chief in Moria but thanks to his Mithril coat he's okey dokey, whereas Sam sustains a flesh wound.
NB At no stage do I think of homosexuality when I read the Lord of the Rings. I guess I grew up in a time when there was no such thing as a homosexual. Gay people were just happy people when I was young. Times have changed, haven't they!
And gradually the very meaning of the word gay has changed, I suppose because "gay" men were the only ones to continue openly indulging in Frivolity. Locker room antics by Jocks and so-called "manly" men sometimes seem just as "gay" to me, but Jocks will deny it with their fists , which they would often use against Tolkien aficionados in High School while castigating THEM as "gay".
If you're a jock, and you get drunk, and you have a bit of hanky panky with another jock - well, does this make you 'gay' or is it only the alcohol that's 'gay'?
