Do the tower-like structures at the Target store in Gambrills look like an evil entity from “The Lord of the Rings” films?
A post on Reddit seems to think so. Titled “I think Target is going to try to conquer Middle Earth,” a user posted a photo of the Waugh Chapel Towne Centre store.
The photo with clouds overhead and Target/Lord of the Rings comparison has prompted nearly 600 comments, both clever and snarky, from readers. Some could make great pseudo-marketing campaigns, perhaps.
Here are a few of the offerings that struck Patch editors as amusing.
DrDragun says: Choose setting for stones both semi-precious and PRECIOUSSSSS
Thybro suggests: Only three easy payments of your body, mind and soul you can get it all with an (expanded) lifetime guaranteed.
Pure_Defiance says: DISCLAIMER: Target Stores Inc will not be held liable for any cave dwelling, loss of hair or talking in the third person.
philphan25 offers this: One sale to rule them all, one sale to find them. One sale to bring them all, and in the darkness bankrupt them.
