More recession humor from Sweet Fancy Moses. I think the writer forgot the part where the corporation turns employees into freelancers, and then turns freelancers into nonentities. (Ask me how many of my friends have fallen for THAT racket, some all too recently and with far too many should-have-have bad examples to learn from. Tch.)

The Beatles make a Lord Of The Rings movie? Two thoughts: 1. Thank heavens it didn’t happen, amen, amen. 2. You realize that if this had happened, the entire history of geekdom would have been reversed — the books would have become too uncool and mainstream to have spawned D&D and the entire fantasy genre, while slackjawed Boomers would still be wandering around talking about whether Frodo (Paul) or Gollum (John) was better?
