Middle Earth New Zealand, a step to far ?

The Huffington Post reports

Middle Earth New Zealand: Twitter User

Shows Passport Stamp From Country As

'Welcome To Middle Earth'

Ok, New Zealand, the Hobbit hoopla is getting to be a bit much.
It's totally adorable and understandable that you're proud of your role in the "Lord of The Rings" trilogy -- and even the upcoming "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey," which premiered in Wellington at the end of November. We even thought it was cute when Air Zealand donned its planes in hobbit-mania and adopted a new hobbit-themed pre-flight safety video.

Hehe we have another two years of this planned.

But, we kind of think this new passport stamp might be a bit too much. There are other great things for New Zealand to show off, after all.

Shit I so want one.... 

If this is indeed real, do you think New Zealand going overboard in its love (and promotion) of all things hobbit, or is it endearing?
I dare say we are going to get a bit of a roasting over at the Huffington post.
