It is a bit cruel that the Tuesday after a three day weekend can feel so difficult. While we do believe in the idea of a four day workweek, sometimes the extra rest can make us extra tired when it comes time to return to our responsible realities. While the day is always tough, it just feels extra arduous – especially if your duties require you to cram five days of work into the shortened week. In times like these, we need memes more than ever. And lucky for all of you, Tuesday is when we supply our friends and followers with a funny, and often stunningly dumb, collection of memes related to all things JRR Tolkien.
This week we have some good news: All memes related to Amazon’s The Rings of Power have been banned from our favorite Lord of the Rings meme subreddit, r/lotrmemes. That means we can enjoy our favorite nerdy humor without the painfully annoying discourse that has been surrounding the upcoming show. So without further ado, we present the week’s best and stupidest Tolkien-related memes. We hope they provide respite from the cruel reality of existence.
