Bored of the Rings
From the legendary comedic scholars who illuminated the tour de force Twilight so brilliantly in the New York Times bestselling Nightlight comes The Hunger Pains, a hilarious send-up of the immensely popular dystopian young adult novel, The Hunger Games.
The classic parody of The Lord of the Rings is back! With a brand-new “boreword” by Henry Beard.
The Power almighty rests in this Lone Ring.
The Power, alrighty, for doing your Own Thing.

It’s up to Boggie Frito Bugger and his band of misfits—including inept wizard Goodgulf Grayteeth, halfwit Spam Gangree, twins Moxie and Pepsi, and Arrowroot of Arrowshirt—to carry the Great Ring to Fordor and cast it into the Zazu Pits.
Can they avoid death by hickey tree and escape the dread ballhog? Can the fellowship overcome the narcs and Nozdruls hounding their every move and save Lower Middle Earth once and for all? Yes, of course—this isn’t Hamlet, you know.
Love this book! Read this 35 years ago, the adventures of Frito & Spam rock
I don't give 5-stars too often, but this little book is one of my all-time favorites. I have purchased it at least 3 times in paperback over the years, 'cause I keep giving it to friends and it never comes back. Hopefully it hasn't been massively altered from it's 1969 version, because it is tremendously funny - though some of the "hippie" humor may feel "dated" now. Highly recommended!
It is very inappropriate. This book is terribly written. It has no depth or good concepts to it.
