Strip by: David Morgan-Mar

T-Rex: I'm reading The Lord of the Rings.
T-Rex: So long...
T-Rex: And then Frodo destroys the Ring and the war ends and the bad guy is dead...
T-Rex: And there's SIX MORE CHAPTERS!
T-Rex: Srsly!
Utahraptor: One does not simply end and epic story in five chapters.
T-Rex: Tolkien basically took "and they lived happily ever after"...
T-Rex: And wrote a six chapter novel about it.

The author writes:

I'm currently partway through "The Scouring of the Shire" chapter. It feels like I finished reading the actual story a week ago...

but the book just won't let me go...

it exerts an unwholesome influence on me...

haunts my mind...

Preciousssss....

[1] I know, that's an actual thing.
