LOTR Caption Contest CXCI

If this image or very similar has appeared before in the Great Archives of Ye Caption Contest, somebody say so and I'll get another.
Little known fact: the Roman numeral CXCI is actually pronounced "sexy."

'Of Herbs and Stewed Rabbit'

Sam didnít tell Frodo that he minced several earthworms into the cook pot for an added tang and a much needed pick-me-up.

"Tell me what you want done, and I will try it, if I have to walk from here to the East of East and fight the wild Were-worms in the Last Desert. They're not so scary!" "Er, Bilbo, they do get bigger. A LOT bigger!"

Not the easiest pic to caption, on second thoughts...

Bracegirdle's and Loresilme's captions were disgusting--not that there's anything wrong with that.
Darkstone's caption was inventive and worked within the canon. By the way, according to Tolkien Gateway, in an early version of The Hobbit, Tolkien referred to the giant were-worms as "the Wild Wireworms of the Chinese." I'm so glad he removed that!But I'm going to give it to Ethel Duath--also inventive and disgusting, but nicely euphonic!

It's real.

The photo is of an earthworm that was found in Sumaco National Park in Ecuador. Some folks have suspected a hoax, but the worm seems to be quite real.

Oh I'd agree

That looks quite real lol! Thanks for the link to the story, interesting to learn that apparently there are even larger ones in Australia.
