It's Easy!

Last week I was pondering just what was wrong with a commenter on another blog in regards to his nasty little comments about LotR fans. Well, I've found the answer right here. It's easy really, he's just stupid! Read an learn, young hobbits:

Iíve noticed a disturbing trend among many of the emails Iíve received for this column. I know it has been all fun and games up to this point, but now itís time to get serious. Email after email describes how husbands, wives, girlfriends, boyfriends, friends, co-workers, casual acquaintances, random strangers on the street, etc. donít support the hobbit habit. Frankly, this kind of behavior SICKENS me. Yes, it is a real tragedy that could reach epic proportions.

Iíve given this lack-of-interest-in-the-Lord-of-the-Rings phenomena a lot of thought. Iíve heard some of the fans say of non-believers, "oh, they just donít GET IT." I disagree with this assessment. The real truth is goes much deeper than simply "getting it" or not. And itís far scarier. The cold hard facts are this: Theyíre STUPID.

Yes, thatís right folks. I know, I know, it is difficult to accept this, but there is no other possible explanation.

Read the rest, as it is very amusing!

Update: Michele says (tracking back her trackback. Oooo, dizzy) she's more of a Legolas gal, so here's a pic of Orlando as Paris.
