Years ago I stumbled upon a satirical essay online all about Middle-earth and the War of the Ring.
I can't remember the details but the overall idea of it was that the Orcs and Sauron had been oppressed by the forces of Gondor, Gandalf and the Hobbits. It was a long essay but general ideas.
Hobbits were manipulating the whole of Middle-earth in order to allow them to maintain the supply of Pipe Weed as required.
Gondor's economy was based entirely on the war effort against Mordor and so they perpetuated the war against Sauron and the Orcs.
Orcs and Sauron simply wanted to be able to walk around in the sun without the fear of an arrow or sword killing them.
There was a lot more and it was a very very funny read.
Has anyone else read this, or can they point me towards where it might be online please? I will say it was not the book Bored of the Rings (Which I have)
