Person Mashes Up ‘Lord of the Ring’ Scenes With Headlines from ‘The Onion’ For Hilarious Results

The movies that make up the Lord of the Ring franchise have kept millions of people entertained as we were shut inside for most of the past few months. Re-watching the movies and re-reading the books have helped us pass the time. By now, many of us could recap plots and quote lines without blinking an eye. Another source of immense entertainment joy are the satirical articles published by The Onion. The headlines alone can start the most bored of us laughing.

Twitter user Lauren used her downtime wisely and came up with a series that combined our passions for epic fantasy movies and satire by matching film scenes with headlines. The results are hilarious.


She told Bored Panda that after making the first one she kept seeing perfect headlines for LotR scenes.

So, she kept creating memes.


She thought maybe a few people would see and like them.

She was pleasantly surprised to see her thread retweeted more than 27,000 times and liked by 105,000.


Obviously, she’s a big fan of the movies and know all the characters.

Samwise Gamgee is her favorite one because he’s such a good friend to everyone, especially Frodo.


Like the rest of us, she’s looking forward to The Silmarillion movies. Hopefully, she’ll get another thread going with more scenes and headlines.


Will some think these headline/scene combo are real? There are people who don’t get The Onion’s satire.


Lauren’s happy she could bring a smile to so many people. It’s amazing what a person can do with Photoshop and some imagination!


And she even inspired others to post their creations. She kept a lot of people occupied for a few hours.

Isn’t it nice when we can play nicely together?

The combinations are endless. It’s like LotR and The Onion were made for each other.

What else can we put with Onion headlines? Harry Potter? John Wick? I’m a little excited about this.

What do you think of these matches? Have you made any of your own? Post them in the comments!
