Morgan's Law

What do you think of Tolkien on the silver screen...? Whether Bakshi, Jackson, Amazon, BBC radio play, or whoever else, come on in and discuss your reflections, opinions, and memories...

Morgan's Law

Defined as Any sufficiently advanced troll is indistinguishable from a genuine kook.

Now- which is this, posted to the Tolkien Society page on Facebook?

We, fans of Peter Jackson's films, appeal
to you:
Everyone, who reads Tolkien's books,
knows that Thorin Oakenshield will die
in the end of the tale. We want to save
him in the film! It is known, that
Jackson is planning a shooting of
additional episodes of this film in
summer. We organized a petition for
Peter Jackson with request that Thorin
should stay alive. We ask you, please,
sign it and tell your friends about it!
Peter Jackson created a real character,
and many people has fallen in love with
him.
We are asking everyone, who has fire in
their hearts: please, help us and
Thorin!!!

I don't know, and care even less, whether this person is just wanting to wind up the good folk of the Tolkien Society, or whether their level of kookiness is genuine. ;)

Whatever, this is hilarious. :rofl:

Tolkien fans usually know how to respond to this kind of thing. I have a high opinion of the general humour levels of your average Tolkienista. :)

I don't know, I found the teasing banter that followed to be a bit off ... ;)

To say, the petition itself is amusing enough to give me a good laugh. Thanks Svetlana Snape!

Considering that the thread eventually covered trebuchets and Speedos (and Speedo trebuchets), you're right.

Well, if Thorin survives may I start a petition that the One Ring survives?

Well, if Thorin survives, how about Fili and Kili? I feel worse about them, than I do about Thorin.
