Hobbit Caption Contest CL

Ah the beautiful simplicity of Roman numerals: CL at last!
For a slight variation, this image is from the 1990 graphic adaptation by Charles Dixon and David Wenzel, for Eclipse Books. In my opinion, it's a very text-heavy adaptation, it should have been 4 or 5 issues rather than 3. But quite nice.
So here is our old buddy. Ignore the fragments of speech balloons. Maybe the caption is what Gollum's saying, or maybe the skull? And let's not have the skull saying 'Gollum, you look a little drawn'...

Bilbo thought that this 'Gollum' was a very sketchy character. //

Other Inklings, thoroughly bored with Elves, applauded Tolkien's sketch of a new character. //

The loss of a contact lens added an extra horror to Gollum's plight.

Winner!

Because pants!
Seriously, Gollum wearing trousers?? Logically, I guess so, but somehow it's wrong. Not to mention the pocketses.

Then I'd best pull up my socks and trousers.

Thanks for the nod - and the tip Wink - , Alveric!

"Gollum's Socks!"

--that was a lesser-known mild expletive in the years of Mayor Sam...
