LOTR Caption Contest CCV

Thanks to Cirashala for passing the torch to me! Usually I'd post this picture at the maximum allowable size-- but that would mean everyone could read what's actually written on the document instead of figuring it out for themselves, and what fun would that be?

"It's not a timeshare, it's a vacation club!" /

 

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

It goes back a little further than that

Different movie, from 1935.

It's likely the 1994 movie was spoofing this classic gag, for those who still remembered it!

That routine is one of my favorites from them.

The whole thing is great.

"Now, the next part I don't think you're gonna like."
"Your word is good enough for me. Now then, is my word good enough for you?"
"I should say not!"
"Well, there go two more clauses."

Silverlode

Roads go ever ever on
Under cloud and under star
Yet feet that wandering have gone
Turn at last to home afar.
Eyes that fire and sword have seen
And horror in the halls of stone
Look at last on meadows green
And trees and hills they long have known.

sorry, Marx Brothers slightly highjacked the thread...

Still, I wonder how the Marx brothers would be cast in LOTR?
Groucho as Gandalf, or maybe Saturman, or bothHarpo as Gollum?
Chico as... ?Zeppo as Aragorn of course.

I can see Chico as Frodo and Harpo as Sam

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.
