One does not simply walk into Mordor!

Recently, I was researching my previously-talked-about trip to New Zeland to walk the trail to Mordor. Whilst searching through some images, I came across this phenomenon, revolving around a famous Lord of the Rings quote.
The quote happens in the 2001, The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring. Boromir is talking to some of the fellowshippers of the ring when he says,
“One does not simply walk into Mordor. It’s black gates are guarded by more than just orcs. There is evil there that does not sleep. The great eye is ever watchful. It is a barren wasteland, riddled with fire, ash, and dust. The very air you breathe is a poisonous fume. Not with ten thousand men could you do this. It is folly.”
Apparently this first line created a craze where people substituted the word “walk” for a handful of different things.
GOOD LAWD, people. This is hilarious.
Some gold for your viewing pleasure:
The Guido fist pump makes my day every time I look at it. I really hope people in the world keep having too much time on their hands so they waste it making stupid images like these…they are good for my sanity.
