First published in 1969, the New York Times bestseller Bored of the Rings is back--and just in time for the major motion picture release of The Hobbit. This classic parody of J.R.R. Tolkien's fictional universe is a timeless comedic masterpiece. The classic parody of The Lord of the Rings is back With a brand-new "boreword" by Henry Beard. The Power almighty rests in this Lone Ring. The Power, alrighty, for doing your Own Thing. If broken or busted, it cannot be remade If found, send to Sorhed (the postage is prepaid). It's up to Boggie Frito Bugger and his band of misfits--including inept wizard Goodgulf Grayteeth, halfwit Spam Gangree, twins Moxie and Pepsi, and Arrowroot of Arrowshirt--to carry the Great Ring to Fordor and cast it into the Zazu Pits. Can they avoid death by hickey tree and escape the dread ballhog? Can the fellowship overcome the narcs and Nozdruls hounding their every move and save Lower Middle Earth once and for all? Yes, of course--this isn't Hamlet, you know.
