Wobbit by National Lampoon

Win The Wobbit! (Not a Typo)

It’s The Wobbit: A Parody by National Lampoon. It’s “the sequel to the parody of the sequel to the prequel to The Lord of the Rings.” It’s out from Touchstone. Here’s what they have to say for themselves:

It’s Weekend Justice: the Internet’s #1 audio trainwreck. It’s the podcast that is waiting for the spaceship to arrive and take it to safety as the world ends. It’s not here yet but we expect it at any moment. Honest...

Happy Birthday, Jennifer Saunders

One of my favorite bits from French & Saunders, they smack around Lord of the Rings in the same fashion they did Harry Potter. Direct link for the feedreaders. And just for the record, I’ve seen online birthdates for her from July...
