Lord of da Rings

Due to the success of The Lord of the Rings, I think that its time we come up with an urban spoof on the movie. Lord of da Rings, centered around the adventures of Afro Baggins. I could definitely see Mel Brooks directing this. I'm not much of an expert on the movie, so I'll leave it to the rest of the halfbakers to come up with ideas and characters.

       Lord of the Bling: Gand'all, the wise black R&B/hip-hop record exec, puts together an all-star cast to brave the inner city streets of Oak-town to rescue the Bling from the evil Eminorgoth, the white boy from Anaheim.

       I've always been concerned about this 'Lord of the ring' thing especially trying to fight my way home from work having to walk through Oxford street in Sydney.

       Harvard Lampoon knocked off the Lord of the Rings back in 1969. Read it and weep.   

       (Other classics in this series include the elusive Moby Duck.)

       Respect to the Middle Earth posse. Westside!

       One Rizing ta pimp dey ass,
One Rizing ta peep 'em,
One Rizing ta snatch dat shit,
An inna blackness creep 'em.

       ...an' so deez crazy-ass pi-yomps in dey blackity-ass rags an shit wuz all up in ma grill, an' ah was like, "Sheeeeit! Y'all foos kay 'aves 'im, as ya takes 'im! Bring it on, beeyotch!"   

       Yo, feel me, dawg, dis ain't no straight bling, see? Ain't nobody gonna jus pawn dis shit, or whuteva. Mad evil only gets jacked inna same hellified hole where it was made, word? Nah, kid, dis shit gots ta get rode ta some ol' freaky-ass volcano in Moria, like back inna day!   

       Somehow, I don't think so. (-)

       Lord of Da Rings...hell ya! This cracked me up, I had the same idea except the characters would be "Dildo" and "Frito". The evil white wizard dude is a grand wizard and all the bad guys are KKK dudes trying to take over the ghetto. Instead of wring wraths there would be cops and they would be after everyone for ripping off a jewelry store. Shizaron would be the pimp mastah and he'd be bling blingin. Gizollum would be a crackhead (just like in the movie) and Gizandolf is a pyro. tehe.

       Yeah, well this should take after some African myths instead of European.
lawpoop, Jul 21 2003

       Another lampoon book well worth reading (if you can find it) is "Doon". I'll let you guess which book it's taking off.
wagster, Jan 22 2005

       Um, Lorna Doone?
DrCurry, Jan 22 2005

       Ask [stilgar] - he'll know! (Where is he anyway?)
wagster, Jan 22 2005

       Dune. and the lampoon version has to be better than the original movie.

       "Get out of the kitchen! How can I cook with you sniffing around in here!" whined Paul.   

       "Ah, he is using the cook-voice." thought Jazzica.

Excellent!. I seem to recall that on of the later chapters was titled ' Minas Troney in the soup.'

       It's OK if you do it now.

       I'd watch, or help if you need it.
