This one was just ok.

OK Jack: Get out of your parent’s basement and go on a date with a RealGirl. Your RealDoll(tm) won’t mind one bit.

Actually, it’s far less sinister than you think. I used the picture of the Ring merely to illustrate an important ring. I couldn’t find anything else in our pictures archive that would have conveyed the importance of the item. The picture of the One Ring has no other significance beyond that.
Apologies if i’ve offended.
Ken

It seems to me, Mr. & Mrs. Reader, that this article’s comparing The One Ring to Mr. Murdoch’s wedding ring is inappropriate. Firstly, a wedding ring is not evil.

Is Mr. Li being stereotypical about marriage (which I find to be the greatest relationship that there can be between a woman and a man)? Perhaps.

Secondly, linking Tolkien’s masterwork and Middle Earth to Mr. Murdoch’s business empire seems just a bit out of balance.

I don’t think this article is humorous.

I do, however, sympathize with any husband who loves his wife and loses his wedding band…the perpetual symbol of their union and life together.

OK Jack
