** Parodied in the ''BoredOfTheRings'' inscription, based on the one up top: "This Ring, and no other / was made by the Elves -- / Who'd pawn their own mother / to get it themselves." In fact, the first edition included a direct parody of the author's warning stating that the intention of ''Bored'' was to make money off the pop-culture colossus that ''LOTR'' was becoming, and declaring that "Those who approve of courtesy to a certain author will not touch this gobbler with a ten-foot battle lance."
