The finding of The Ring - monochrome variation

Kids telling other kids about how they plan to use rings is making terroristic threats. This seems to have taken place in Texas in the Kermit Independent School District.

The Odessa American reported that the principal said threats against a student – magical or not – are not tolerated.

The boy’s father, Jason Steward, said the family had been to see “The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies” last weekend. His son brought a ring to his class at Kermit Elementary School and told another boy his magic ring could make the boy disappear. The story is starting to get traction in bigger media arenas but it seems this smallish Texas website started it.

(It is clear to TheOneRing.net that the lad was only trying to be a good Steward — like his father and the whole family needs shirts that say, “I am of Gondor.”)
