Orcs of New York, Another Humans of New York Parody Account

Orcs of New York is a new webpage from actor Harry Aspinwall that parodies the style of the widely popular Humans of New York, only with Orcs instead of humans.

This project has been a labour of love, and it means the world to me that so many people have taken an interest and want to help raise awareness about a people so often maligned and misunderstood. For many years I've felt that orcish culture has a beauty that goes unappreciated and underrepresented in the mainstream media, even while orcish people make up an ever growing proportion of our city. It's time they stood in the spotlight.

"My kids never believe me when I tell them how different things were when I was their age. I was the only orc in my class. Now there are six or seven, and they have an orcish substitute sometimes, and they spend a couple of days learning about orcish culture. I wish they could appreciate that more. But whatever, they go back to school today. Thank god."

"I was born and raised in the Bronx. I don't really feel much connection with Mordor. It's hard, my parents don't talk about it much. You hear a lot about orcish refugees coming here after the War of the Ring - some humans, too, actually, who fought with the Dark Lord - but orcs have been coming here a long time to get out of the rigid caste structure. My parents were snaga, a low caste. So they don't really talk about it."

"I grew up in a traditional household. I took weekly lessons in Black Speech, and my parents wanted me to get an engineering degree. I ended up with a BA in psych and visual art. They were pretty good about it."

Many thanks to Carl Daniels for referring his orcish friend!

"I live in East New York and commute into Gorgoroth. I love my job. I design the war paint for Uruk chieftains. I might have the only artistic job in Mordor, except for maybe the Dark Lord's architect. But I think the Dark Lord designs his architecture himself."
