The title is clearly meant to refer to the attacks on the World Trade Center.

Check out some of the comments on the "signatures". I'm LMAO!!! [url]http://www.PetitionOnline.com/mod_perl/signed.cgi?twotower&1[/url] Here are some good ones: 1025. Lucas King (I'm not for it I'm just bitching): you are the dumbest mother fucker i have EVER see online. first of all Yes, what happened on spet. 11th was aweful, I'm not deneying that. But President bush told us to get on with our lives and changing EVERYTHING that MIGHT offend someone or upset someone is not movin on, that living in fear. Second, if you even bothered to read the books and not be a fuckin poser by just seeing the movie and saying you know EVERYTHING about the trilogy you would know that it has NOTHING to do with sept. 11th...read up, do your homework and then try and peddle your fuckin idiodic idealology somewhere else!!...fucker 1024. John Handoncock Peoples: The book was named the two towers WAY befor 911 so i say you guys need to take your pussy assed heads out of your asses and think for once!!! 1016. You are a moron: Read the book! It's called The Twin Towers. You must be the biggest idiot God ever cursed a planet with. To think that there is someone in the world who could be enough of a dumbass to think that someone would try to INTERNATIONALLY try to take advantage of such a tragedy is more sad then the fact that you actually spent some of your time to start up this idiotic petition. I would love to meet you in person someday so I can give you a good swift kick in the nuts. To hell with you and idiots like you. To Peter Jackson, you took something wondrous and made it even more special. Keep it up! 1011. T-Dub: Yo, whats up with this shit b? Two towers, what, you think Tolkien named his book, what, thinking that someday that 9/11 would happen, what, you think...YOU...yeah you who wrote this petition, what, you think you have a life,what, you think you probably are gettin fucked tonight, what, you think your special, what, hey you know what my watch is sayin besides tick tock tick tock, what, it says your PATHETIC! Go get a good fuck and then come back and tell me if you really give a shit about something as dumbass as this is. Hey fuckstick, what, I finna jizack you if this petition passes, what, yo, I finna gat you b....hey, I got an idea b, why dont we change the third sequel of the book, return of the king, because doesnt that imply the return of Jesus Christ, what, you think Tolkien was being a little sneaky bastard when he wrote that, what.what, what. what!!!! Hey Im all for danny wuerfell by the way starting for the redskins, yo, the redskins finna have twin towers (sugar shane and wuerfell) yo, peace out and my favorite(which is a reference to the show on comedy central about talking animals): 1002. Title From 1954: I have eight watches -- none of them are fake.

Someone already posted the "petition to ignore this petition" last night. If anyone's started another, you should look at merging the two. . . .

It was amusing to view the signatures and see a 10:1 ratio of "false entry voided" entries. My personal favorite: Signature number 1019 from Sam(uel L.)? Jackson: "Won't somebody think of the children?" -Ed

Signed the correct petition. Yessir, screw them knee jerkers. (I think this was 1k, where is my balloon and dancing girl?)

'slashdotwidener@yahoo.com' is a known troll at [url=www.slashdot.org]Slashdot[/url]. Judging from some of the responses in this thread, he seems to be a rather effective troll, too.

Err...I posted about this yesterday but no one seemed to care [>(] but anyway, there's a petition someone already started and it has about 20 times more signatures than the one you guys created: [url]http://www.petitiononline.com/trutower/petition.html[/url] so sign that one!

Trivia for Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers, The ; (2002) Following the attack on the World Trade Center on 11 September 2001, and because of the similarity between the buildings' nickname, "The Twin Towers", and the movie's title, "The Two Towers", the director and producers briefly considered renaming the second movie in the trilogy. They eventually decided against it, [b]Peter Jackson's main reason being that, "fans would kill me".[/b]
