"There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life:
The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged.
One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes,
leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood,
unable to deal with the real world.
The other, of course, involves orcs."

The country would doubtless be a better place had these two yahoos been introduced to Tolkein.
I'm just sayin'.
