      Ow ow ow! That should have had a “not safe” warning or something. It’s the worst excesses of Jackson (and I say this as someone who rather liked the Bag End interior) married to the arch-tweeness of Thomas Kincaid. Now where’s that brain brillo I keep around just for things like this….

      If you want to know what the place actually looks like, or was going to look like, its website is <http://www.bendshire.com/>

      The words "twee" and "cutesy" do not half apply to Jackson's films as much as they do to this. Its failure has saved us from a thorough round of cultural vandalism.
