14 Hilarious Stories About Some People’s Strange Relationship With Tolkien

| Right | March 25, 2021

Dear readers,

“In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit. Not a nasty, dirty, wet hole, filled with the ends of worms and an oozy smell, nor yet a dry, bare, sandy hole with nothing in it to sit down on or to eat: it was a hobbit-hole, and that means comfort.”

And with those words, J.R.R. Tolkien created the foundation for the fantasy genre that we appreciate today. Today is Tolkien Reading Day – a day where all are encouraged to read the words of the master, or anything inspired by him that transports the reader to wonderful and fantastical worlds.

If you don’t have time to read a lengthy fantasy novel, why not start with these fourteen stories from our archives about some people’s strange relationship with Tolkien and his works? Have a read when it’s time for elevensies!

| Right | March 24, 2021

Dear readers,

We know that complicated coffee orders are normal these days, and if the option is on the menu, then the customer should be able to order it any way they like. Our issue starts when these orders come from customers who don’t seem to know what they’re ordering. They’re either just trying to sound cool or want to add extra-complicated steps to their drink to give themselves something to complain about.

We’ve rounded up eleven stories from our archives about obnoxious customers and their equally obnoxious coffee orders.

 

Make Coffee, Not War – We hope some deserving employee got to enjoy that drink.

One Dangerously Pressurized Coffee, Coming Up – Someone really needed that coffee.
