LOTR Caption Contest CXCI Can't Post

If this image or very similar has appeared before in the Great Archives of Ye Caption Contest, somebody say so and I'll get another.
Little known fact: the Roman numeral CXCI is actually pronounced "sexy."

'Of Herbs and Stewed Rabbit' [In reply to] Can't Post

Sam didnít tell Frodo that he minced several earthworms into the cook pot for an added tang and a much needed pick-me-up.

Not the easiest pic to caption, on second thoughts... [In reply to] Can't Post

Bracegirdle's and Loresilme's captions were disgusting--not that there's anything wrong with that.
Darkstone's caption was inventive and worked within the canon. By the way, according to Tolkien Gateway, in an early version of The Hobbit, Tolkien referred to the giant were-worms as "the Wild Wireworms of the Chinese." I'm so glad he removed that!But I'm going to give it to Ethel Duath--also inventive and disgusting, but nicely euphonic!

It's real. [In reply to] Can't Post

The photo is of an earthworm that was found in Sumaco National Park in Ecuador. Some folks have suspected a hoax, but the worm seems to be quite real.
