Bored of the Rings: A Parody of J.R.R. Tolkien's Lord of the Rings - The Harvard Lampoon, Henry Beard, Douglas C. Kenney This is one of the single funniest books I've ever read! I originally read it while I was a freshman in high school and it was literally the first book I'd ever read that I was belly-laughing uncontrollably while I was reading it (and mind you, belly-laughing for me, even back then, was not a safe thing to be around). As a parody, as a satire and as a simply funny story, this book has had more influence on letting me grow my own peculiar sense of humor than almost anything else I've ever read or watched. It still reads well today, and the humor isn't all that dated, at least in my eyes. I highly recommend Bored of the Rings to anyone, Tolkien fan or hater alike!
