The New York Times reports on the artistry of William Puck, who is producing and posting posters and would-be service announcements that resemble New York City’s Metropolitan Transit Authority. But here’s the rub: they’re all about The Lord of the Rings. (The MTA, for the Proudfoots and Bolgers among you, runs New York City’s subway and bus systems.)

A safety advisory warns riders to “watch out for the Mirkwood spiders.” A service notice details the “tunnel high above Minas Morgul.”

The Warriors are not impressed.

More at the Times.
