The Hobbit Caption Contest LXXIX (Post-Christmas Edition)

What is Radagast up to here? What might be being said or thought?

But, but, I made it specially for you Gandalf. *sniff*

Gandalf: Well, that's very good of you Radagast, but Stinkbeetle juice gives me terrible wind.

“It seemed to Hazel that he would not be needing his body any more, so he left it lying on the edge of the ditch; and the light of the Phial of Radagast that he bore glimmered and was lost." /

 

******************************************
The audacious proposal stirred his heart. And the stirring became a song, and it mingled with the songs of Gil-galad and Celebrian, and with those of Feanor and Fingon. The song-weaving created a larger song, and then another, until suddenly it was as if a long forgotten memory woke and for one breathtaking moment the Music of the Ainur revealed itself in all glory. He opened his lips to sing and share this song. Then he realized that the others would not understand. Not even Mithrandir given his current state of mind. So he smiled and simply said "A diversion.”

Well

With Radagast's association with Rhosgobel Rabbits:

It seemed to Hazel that he would not be needing his body any more, so he left it lying on the edge of the ditch...
-Watership Down, Epilogue

...and slowly the ship slipped away down the long grey firth; and the light of the glass of Galadriel that Frodo bore glimmered and was lost.
-The Return of the King, The Grey Havens

But really, if you have to explain a joke it ain't funny...

You are supposed to serve red wine with hedgehog, yes?/

 

And Rose drew him in, and set him on the harpsichord bench, and put little Wilhelm Friedemann upon his lap.

He began composing a fugue. 'Well, I'm Bach,' he said.

Gandalf: No, Radagast, it's not "just as good" as the Phial of Galadriel, and marketing it as the Cruet of Radagast is not going to help. //

Quick Post Express has just delivered a vial of 'NuvaClear', and Radagast hopes to say farewell to his eye-bags. /

 

‘. . . the rule of no realm is mine . . .
But all worthy things that are in peril . . . those are my care.
For I also am a steward. Did you not know?'

"Extra strength bird poop remover"? Well, it's worth a try. //

 

They went in, and Sam shut the door.
But even as he did so, he heard suddenly,
deep and unstilled,
the sigh and murmur of the Sea upon the shores of Middle-earth.
