Someone has assembled this supercut of every single death shown in Fellowship of the Ring, The Two Towers and Return of the King, and suddenly it dawns on me that LotR is, in a sense, mostly a tale of genocide against orcs. Seriously, the ratio of orc to non-orc deaths here is kind of disturbing.

It makes me wonder what, if the orcs wrote their side of the adventure, they might name the tale. The Fellowship of the Homicidal Maniacs, perhaps? I'm open to other suggestions in the comments (hint, hint).
