Lord of the Rings Humour: Parodies, Satires and More

Post#1 » Wed Nov 11, 2009 9:09 pm

It's interesting to note, Tin, that many upper and middle class men in T's day spoke to each other (at least in writing) in what might be thought a slightly gay way nowadays. "My Dearest John," etc. Friendships could be close, I cite Sam and Frodo as an example, very intimate, but in no ways homosexual. I don't know that we'd have to be all that precious about Beren and Finrod's friendship. Finrod and Barahir's was close, and then Beren and Finrod's after that. It is platonic love. (And I do apologize for being so giggly about it earlier! I couldn't resist! :oops: )

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! :shock: Life is truly an education!

Anyway :idea: hopefully we've got it all sorted now and get on with our movie planning?!

That reminds me of a scene in one of Kevin Smith's Jay and Silent Bob movies where a LotR fan character angrily says "They aren't gay, they're Hobbits" :lol: .

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.

Yes, you have left me to carry the main 'waffle' load! Mind you - I think I'm the better 'waffler' (meaning no disrespect to you), so you left the site in good hands!


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!

This part of the conversation reminds me of a juvenile but HILARIOUS remix of the Houses of Healing scene on youtube. Probably not suitable for prepubescents, but there's nothing at all pornographic in it. It just emphasizes the suggestiveness of the scene :lol: . It's fine for teens and above (indeed juvenile delinquents are more likely to be amused than "adults" ;) ).

My sound's not working for some reason, GB, but as a silent movie it is pretty dubious. I see what you mean. Mr McKellen is gay, isn't he? And his Gandalf looks pretty gay too - with happiness, I presume!

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...

You had me going for a second Odo :lol: . I just went looking for the new thread so I could move these posts there :roll: :lol: . Did you check your volume control/mute "button"? Or the one on the youtube video? The sound effects are priceless :mrgreen: .

Okay, that's enough digressing for now. Hmmm! Maybe I should start a Tolkien Parody thread and move a few of these posts there.

GOTCHA!!!!

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!

Alrighty Then!!! It's come to my attention that this new thread is past due ;) . Largely because of one of The Hobbit Forum's infamous Digressions (in no small part of my own :roll: ).

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 :P . 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 :oops: . This should have been the first post :roll: . Maybe Beren will know how to fix it when he pops back in after his exams :ugeek: . But I think you get the idea. Have at it :mrgreen: .

Great thread idea. ;) And GB, that video is hilarious! :lol: Here are a few I've found in my time. I've rated them as I think the should be.

How Lord of the Rings Should Have Ended (PG)

There are more but I like these. :lol:

Well I just remembered the one link rule after finding a whole bunch. Spamming time I guess to show all of them.
