YMMV: Bored of the Rings
  • Cliché Storm: Presciently presented, as the conversion of Tolkien's original creativity into the cliches of heroic fantasy had barely begun at that point.
  • Memetic Mutation: Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons.
  • Weird Al Effect: An interesting variation — while LOTR itself is still familiar to the point that nobody past Middle School age can call themselves a geek unless they've read it, many of the sources drawn on for the Parody Names and such are all but forgotten. A working knowledge of 1950s and 1960s politics, pop culture and advertising adds a lot to the experience.
