A Turkish court appoints five ‘Lord of the Rings’ experts to figure out whether Gollum meme is offensive

Turkish doctor Bilgin Çiftçi lost his job. He’s been put on trial. And whether he goes to prison hinges on one thing:

Is Gollum a good guy?

    Only in islam. Except after watching the throne speech, parliament today looked like ramadan in Mecca, So I guess we can expect the same fun here.

    I remember when my youngest son was born, the first thing that went through my mind, and I may even of said it out loud was “wow, he looks just like Golam!”.

    Now he’s 10 and turning out into a handsome young man, but he did have me wondering at the time.

    Sméagol or Gollum, that is the question.

  • FactsWillOut

    Gollum was a bad guy. Period.

    • I thought he just had a shiny thing fetish? Sam did not care for him much either.

      • FactsWillOut

        All of his attempts at murder by backstabbing makes him a bad guy, notwithstanding the fact that Bilbo stole his Precious.

        • I don’t remember, but it was a fishing trip that went bad, and I don’t think that Bilbo stole it, Gollum just went nuts, one thing led to another….well its history now, I’m probably not even remembering it correctly.

            Also, when Gollum originally found the Ring, he murdered his friend to keep it for himself.

      He’s like islamists. He started outok but then got involved with the ring…aka islam and became a truly evil monster.
