At least Sam kept his promise to Frodo. And yes, I had to bring Lord of the Rings into this.
This is very similar to a sign that I held at the End the Fed march — it said, “Throw the ring into Mount Doom already!” and had a picture of the ring with money symbols and the word “power” written around it. (On the other side of the poster, I made a Matrix reference reading, “Take the red pill!” I love movie analogies.)
