Polycarp I agree with you 100%. This is the stuff that urban legends are made of.
Two minor quibbles. 1. The title to your thread makes it sound like you actually agree me the morons who started the petition. (If made me click it, as I could not believe that you would have fallen for such a thing, which of course you did not). 2. I think this may have been pitted already (but I may be wrong, and it may be well worth 2 “pittings” for stupidity alone). 3. Hi Opal.
Sadly, that doesn’t surprise me at all. I knew it would be coming. Amazing, isn’t it, that Tolkien had the gall to mock our loss 30 years before the structures were even built? He and his minions must have had something to do with it. He conspired to have the towers built, then destroy them as a publicity stunt to generate book sales!!! The bastard!
And even worse, is that Polycarp fell for it! I thought the thread was going to be serious until I saw who posted the thread: one of the few posters even more Tolkien-obsessed than I am. hahahahaha
Having been around geeks, fen, and other unsavory types all my life . . .
And having been online for the better part of two decades now . . .
And even though I like you all a lot . . .
I believe that y’all are the ones who have been had. I am willing to bet heavily that the petition is a hoax, a pure troll in the tradition of some of the best. And damn if’n it didn’t get a reaction, huh?
And I suppose it’s just a “coincidence” that the third book is named “Return of the King” and that the “king’s return” was made possible by the fall of the “two towers?” I suppose it’s also a “coincidence” that the “return of the king” to Afghanistan was made possible by the fall of “two towers?”
Here are some good ones:
3581. Mikey Listen up you fucks, whoever is stupid enough to think the name should be changed can eat my shit, then shit out their shit, then eat their shit thats made out of their shit and my shit. \m/
Joey Michaels I think a good alternate title would be “Saruman’s Axis of Evil”
Sean Curtin Whoever this Tolkein guy is, he’s an insensitive ashole if he’s making a movie with a title like that. I’ll bet he’s not even American!! What gives him the right!!!
sympathetic uk Tolkien should be exumed, and buried again
Vi Scid I agree, the director Mr. Tolkien should immediately change the name for the respect of the people lost in the empire state building crash, the families of mr Trump will be hurt when they see this movie, making it would be wrong!
Osama Who the hell cares about you americans? Everyone hates you. Die all. 11/9 was the best thing ever happened to the world. DIE!!!
