This post commemorates a very long thread on The Straight Dope message board that contains samples of J. R. R. Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings had it been written by somebody else. Netizens contributed their works, usually a single page or less, between October 10, 2002 and February 4, 2004. The parodies spanned (literally) from Ernest Hemingway to Jerry Seinfeld. There were a total of 2042 posts. Eventually, I will get through them all. The entire set appears to be available on the Wayback Machine too, just in case.
