The Lord of the Facebook and other LOTR Parodies

Updated on September 3, 2012

A Parody of Lord of the Rings

The Lord of the Rings is a great and wordy book - with some very memorable characters. Now, just imagine what kind of updates they'd been writing for their Facebook accounts, if they'd had those...?

Imagine no more. It has been written for you.

This page began as a way to collect the Lord of the Facebook parody cast, Lord of the Rings Fanpages, Lord of the Facebook lenses and Lord of the Facebook groups - but has since started sprouting links to other facebook status parodies and the better LOTR parodies on YouTube and elsewhere.

Enjoy


The Lord of the Facebook Trilogy is a joint effort.

Aotearoan is the writer

Flynn_the_cat put the lenses together and numbed their hands on the coding!*

You can start reading the Facebook parody at these links:

The Lord of the Facebook Trilogy

1. The Fellowship of the Facebook

2.The Two Notifications

3. The Return of the Friend Request

*I do appreciate feedback on the appearance, and suggestions - I've tried to make it look as close to Facebook as possible, but I'm working it out as I go.

Bored of the Rings? - I have just the thing!

Bored of the Rings: A Parody of J. R. R. Tolkien's Lord of the Rings
Bored of the Rings: A Parody of J. R. R. Tolkien's Lord of the Rings

Written in the gloaming of their college days, just before they started National Lampoon, Douglas C. Kenney and Henry N. Beard wrote Bored of the Rings. It's dated--references to Nixon, drugs, and consumer products circa 1969 crowd every page--but darn it, Bored of the Rings is still funny nearly 30 years later: "'Goodbye, Dildo,' Frito said, stifling a sob. 'I wish you were coming with us.'

'Ah, yes. But I'm too old for that sort of thing now,' said the old boggie, feigning a state of total quadriplegia. 'Anyway, I have a few small gifts for you,' and he produced a lumpy parcel, which Frito opened somewhat unenthusiastically in view of Dildo's previous going-away present [the ring]. But the package only contained a short, Revereware sword, a bulletproof vest full of moth holes, and several well-thumbed novellas with titles like Elf Lust and Goblin Girl..."

Legolas - cause i'm a blonde - Perhaps they should have stuck with canon after all.

Taking the Hobbits to Isengard - Music Video!

This was originally created by the guy at Beekveld and only uses music and speech from the movies - heavily distorted, sped up, slowed down and run through a kazoo and an entire drumkit.

Also terrifyingly catchy.

They're taking the hobbits to Isengard!

Lord of the Rings Parody - Jack Black - The Official Easter Egg - N exactly SFW

This is the official easter egg parody with Jack Black and Sarah Michelle Gellar (also better known as Buffy. Just a warning - the humour is... adult, although nothing is *visible* that someone walking past shouldn't see, the implications aren't something your boss should overhear!

These are all 'real' and pre-existing pages. If there's one that should be here, leave the link in the comments!

Boromir's Banana Phone - Airphones, airheads, talking to thin air...

The last bit's the punchline. Soundtrack 'Raffi's Banana Phone' - can be watched silently.

      I'm not a fan of Lord of the Rings, but I do know some people who are crazy fans, and would really love your lens!!! I can see why you like it, though from your very detailed lens!

      Way to go
