Muppets Starring in The Lord of the Rings

Silver Snail Comics, the Little Comic Book Shop that Could, in Toronto, Canada, has crafted the best storefront window scene since Andrew McCarthy posed a Kim-Cattrall-shaped dummy in the front window of Prince & Co. department store in 1987’s Mannequin.

Those brilliant Canucks have recreated the Helm’s Deep scene from LOTR: The Two Towers with Muppets, and have dubbed their masterpiece, “The Muppet Show in Ham’s Deep.”

Sure, you’ve seen your fair share of Muppet spoofs, but how many have afforded you the chance to see a decapitated Dr. Bunsen Honeydew?

I guess someone got tired of hearing, “Now, Beakie, we’ll just flip this switch and 60,000 refreshing volts of electricity will surge through your body. Ready?”

Speak of the devil… I dare you not to smile real-big-on-the-inside when you see the good doctor’s erstwhile assistant.

Can’t you hear the frantic Mee-mee-mee meep! in your head, over the clamor of battle?

Interested in more Muppet spoofs? Why don’t you visit my new friend, Muppet Wiki and run a search. (Don’t worry, Wookieepedia, I haven’t forgotten about you.)

Or, for your convenient viewing pleasure, Robot Chicken has combined the Muppets with another pop culture gem: VH1’s Behind the Music.

    This reminds me of the Barbie doll nudist camps I staged as a youngster. (Wait, I’ll make this relevant.) I used to worry I was the only kid who did this, until about 6 months ago, when I did an interview on Playboy Radio with Christy Canyon and Ginger Lynn. (Yeah. Porn stars. Heh.) Lo and behold, they had nudist camps and orgies with their dolls, too! Only instead of Ken or Big Jim, the trolls were the ones getting lucky.

    Lord of the Rings->Muppets->Trolls->Barbie doll nudist camps.

    See, I told you I would make it relevant.

    The connection is perfectly clear to me.

    Randomness -> porn -> Barbie Dolls -> Muppets -> Christy Canyon
