"so what do you reckon'll happen if I drop this big root in that basket on her head?"

 

The term is over: the holidays have begun. The dream is ended: this is the morning.

No sense of humour that one.

I simply suggested it might add a little je ne sais quoi to her new chapeau.

Dunk for the Hatster

The National Sport of the Shire. It's like basketball but with hats and turnips.
Winner!

Do you think if I throw that tuber at her

She'd finally leave me alone?

Farmer- Well, they say an apple a day keeps the doctor away...not sure what a tuber does though.

Bilbo- I'll give it a try. I don't like turnips anyway.

Farmer- Well, if you're gonna use it as a weapon, it's gonna cost you extra.

Bilbo-...

Lobelia- Bilbo Baggins! Have I got a word for you!

Bilbo (hands him his whole purse)- Keep the change.

All this time I've been wondering - is that actually celeriac?

A winner--again? instead? also?

So, two weeks ago I declared the Hatser winner, but not sure if the message got through. And in the meantime, more captions have been rolling in. So, at risk of creating a rift in time and space, or a schism the size of that period in the Middle Ages when there were two Popes, the doom that I deem is: the ever-inventive Cirashala gets the baton.

that would be CLXXV, or 175

re. posting images, I find the hardest part is following the size restriction. Sometimes I have to crop an image way down for it to fit.
