    Warning: This isn't the real thing...it's funnier! "Gerber's affectionate, giggle-inducing send-up is one giant step toward restoring the somewhat debased art form known as 'parody,'" says Sean Kelly, former editor of National Lampoon. If you love Harry Potter - or if you have had enough of him! - you've gotta hear this.

    Eddie Beard says: "If Zero stars were an option . . ."
    "This is a serious stinkeroo!!!"
    Overall

    After suffering through the first three hours of this travesty of a mockery of a sham, I decided to put it out of its misery and purge it from my player. Not one chortle or guffaw escaped me, not a tiny titter or glint of giggle made it past my lips...nor even came anywhere near them. Where Harvard Lampoon succeeded with "Bored of the Rings", this title falls flat on its face and breaks its nose in the process. I would almost rather be tied to a fence and eaten by a pack of wild boar than allow one more sentence of this pathetic attempt at humor to assault my ears. Some may find this humorous...those who enjoyed the movie "Super Troopers", perhaps, but the lack of creative hilarity or anything other than mind-numbing stupidity made it painful for me to listen to. This is strictly my own opinion, so please don't send me copies of this book tied to bricks thrown through my window...send a grenade instead. It will be less painful.
