The Hobbit Caption Contest CXIV

Thanks very much to TORnsib and fellow "Help Prevent Elf Coli" activist Belegdir for picking me as the one hundred and thirteenth winner of The Hobbit Caption Contest.


According to the sacred rules as handed down by The Inestimable Otaku-sempai I shall now hereby enter the one hundred and fourteenth screenshot for all of you to caption:





The original screencap is here.

******************************************
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.”

"Alas, poor Yorick! I knew him, Bard...

"...a very fishy fellow."

Celebrimbor: "Pretty rings..."
Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."
Men: "Pretty rings..."
Sauron: "Mine's better."

"Ah, how ironic, the addictive qualities of Sauron’s master weapon led to its own destruction. Which just goes to show, kids - if you want two small and noble souls to succeed on a mission of dire importance... send an evil-minded beggar with them too." - Gandalf's Diaries, final par, by Ufthak.

Alfrid says.....

"It's a flying fish. I saw it soaring over Lake Town and noticed it had a scale missing so I threw a black needle into the opening. It fell out of the sky and killed some guys carrying gold. I thought I'd get rich scooping up some gold but got beat to it. I got the fish back and when I looked at it got the idea to invent Billy Bass. I programmed it to yell "You shall not bass!" then sold the patent for 3,000 gold coins, stuffed them in my bra and lived happily ever after."

"I found it is the small things.....everyday deeds of ordinary folk that keeps the darkness at bay.....simple acts of kindness and love." - Gandalf
