I saw this bumper sticker today. I imagine a fanboy was driving, but my shock/bemusement prevented me from checking.
Now, I know the LOTR trilogy grossed more than $1B, much of that in "Red States," Podnuh. And, personally, I've never read or seen the trilogy, so I can't explain the reference, but I'm sure the sticker applier could do a good half-hour on it, easily. But as a geek myself in so many other areas, I can recognize that it's this kind of out-of-left-field cultural/political connect the dots that makes us book-learned "Blue Staters" appear
So, Lefties? Keep your eye on the ball, at least until after the election.
