3rd Annual C-U Edible Book Festival
“Lard of the Rings”. Not my idea of edible. Does it come with it’s own triple by-pass?
It’s like a wholly unhealthy menorah.
These happen all around the world on April 1st. Find one near you and go! I’ve been playing for 9 years now and it’s a blast every time.
Anyone every read “Bored with The Rings” publish by Harvard Lampoon? At least that had “Spamwize Gammy” and “Frito Bugger”…
This brings to mind my favourite joke from my university days:
“Forged in the fryers of McDoom, in the Lard of the Rings, comes the Onion Ring to Rule them All!”
#4, you forgot to mention “Dildo Baggins”.
I’ve seen (pictures of) better LotR food.
Here and here
I thought about adding “Legolamb” because of food, but not good ole “Dildo” not very food like, but still valid, thanks for remembering the old classics!

The C-U website (not yet updated with 2009 festival info, but it will be soon):
Yes, I had a copy of “Bored of the Rings”. No idea what happened to it, but it was hilarious.
“One-yun ring in salted brine, One-yun ring to dry them, One-yun ring with batter, yumm, and in hot oil fry them!”
