UK satire website The DailyMash has come up with this amusing take on the old “one does not simply walk into Mordor” chestnut. Enjoy!
Mordor Grand Prix announced
BERNIE Ecclestone has struck a deal to take Formula One to the land of Mordor, where the shadows lie.
The Mordor Grand Prix will be on the F1 calendar from 2016, to the delight of the Black Land’s motorsport aficionados.
The deal to bring Formula One to the orc-rich land was facilitated by Ecclestone’s friend and business associate, the Witch-king of Angmar, who rubbished concerns over Mordor’s human rights record.
He said: “Media accusations of mass surveillance, hobbit torture and secret armies of Uruk-Hai are unfounded and holding back tourism.
“People always say that one does not simply walk into Mordor. We want to show them that one in fact drives into Mordor, ideally in a single-seat, open cockpit car in the company of champagne-drenched bikini models.”
Teams will race in a newly constructed course in the shadow of Mount Doom, under the all-seeing eye of the Watchful One.
** Yes, it’s not an F1 car but otherwise it’s oddly appropriate. Consider it two jokes for the price of one.
