Caption Contest CXLIII Can't Post

(That's 143, if anyone is losing count like me. C = 100; XL = 10 from 50, or 40; and III = 3. Now go out and hug the nearest Arab you can find for our current numerical system that beats the Romans'.)

And thanks again for the winner's trophy, L Ron.

Here's our latest installment for humorous captioning. Caption away, one and all!

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.

Gimli is playing the air guitar for all he's worth.... [In reply to] Can't Post

...but it seems no one can be persuaded to dance!

For still there are so many things
that I have never seen:
in every wood and every spring
there is a different green. . .

One of the drawbacks of Minas Tirith plumbing was the lack of privacy. / [In reply to] Can't Post


“Begone, foul dwimmerlaik, lord of carrion! Leave the dead in peace!"
"Come not between the Nazgul and his prey! Or he will not slay thee in thy turn. He will bear thee away to the houses of lamentation, beyond all darkness, where thy flesh shall be devoured, and thy shrivelled mind be left naked to the Lidless Eye."
"Do what you will; but I will hinder it, if I may."
"Hinder me? Thou fool. No living man may hinder me!"
"But no living man am I! I am Eowyn, daughter of Theodwyn!”
"Er, really? My mother's name was Theodwyn, too!"
"No way!"
"Wow! Let's stop fighting and be best friends!"

Legolas: "Hurry up Gimli I can't hold on much longer!" // [In reply to] Can't Post


They went in, and Sam shut the door.
But even as he did so, he heard suddenly,
deep and unstilled,
the sigh and murmur of the Sea upon the shores of Middle-earth.

And the winner is...Dormouse! Thank you all for playing. You were all equally funny and this was a nigh-impossible call. [In reply to] Can't Post

And seriously, even if the Steward is dead, do you really let a Dwarf hang out on his throne like it's just another park bench???

Thank you..... [In reply to] Can't Post

Assuming - *cough* - that you haven't been handed the wrong envelope, I will take a quick mousey bow and scurrey off to find a suitable film still!

I'll be back..... Smile
