A one-way ticket for Paris Hilton & Jodie Marsh. I think they'll both fit in to their new surroundings in down-town Mordor.

Gollum doesn't know the depths of torture & misery until he's watched ITV1 for a day, especially Daytime TV

I assign Windows Vista, Office 2007 and Visual Studio 2008 - all useless and full of bugs and bloatware. Even Sauron himself would probably dispair after a while
