Some dude decided to capitalize on the Lord of the Rings frenzy and take fandom to a whole new level--replicating The Shire, or Hobbiton--with real homes for real people to live in.
That's... impressive? Hilarious? Crazy? Genius? You decide. Apparently, no one's actually buying any homes because the real estate market is so bad. Or MAYBE no one is buying because who really wants to have their friends over for a dinner party and have to say, "Oh watch your head on that round door there, it's meant for a 4 foot tall hairy man with disproportionately large feet, not some human of Gandalf-like proportions!" I mean, not me.
