The Eye 'You sit on a throne of lies'!

I came across this scene from the film Elf (2003), where Buddy (Will Ferrell), a man raised as an elf at the North Pole, is sent to the USA to search for his true identity.

Among the things he finds out is that a department store Santa isn't the real one. This so disgusts him that he publically denounces this fake Santa, including telling him 'You sit on a throne of lies', found at 0.49 in the clip I've given the link to:

This makes me laugh, because it makes me think of an elf in Middle-earth denouncing Sauron with the same phrase.

What do people think?

So the secret is out. Sauron is again posing as Annatar.

The Eye Perhaps that's all he can do

You may be right; but perhaps that's all Sauron can do, thanks to the destruction of the Ring. He has been reduced to a department store Santa.
