LOTR Caption contest CCVIII Can't Post

Theoden inspecting the defenses, yet somehow oblivious to the whopping great hole in the wall. Unnamed Man notices his King all dressed up in purple velvet.

Celebrimbor: "Pretty rings..."
Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."
Men: "Pretty rings..."
Sauron: "Mine's better."

"Ah, how ironic, the addictive qualities of Sauronís 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.

Sorry, Alveric. [In reply to] Can't Post

The only captions I've come up with involving a wall would probably earn me a gentle reprimand.
And rightly so. Laugh

Why isn't that hole repaired? [In reply to] Can't Post

Man #1- We're tired of these abysmal work conditions.
Man #2- Yeah. Nothing but maggoty bread, blistering heat (when it ain't raining), and blisters. Oh, and those orcs!
Man #1- Yeah, the orcs! We didn't get no hazard pay for tryin' to build while we're being shot at! Not to mention, those buggers were a pain in the (bleep) all freaking night! How can we work under those conditions?!
Theoden-....So...what you're saying is?
(Man #1 hands him a piece of paper)

Man #2- We're unionizing. Here's the terms. Take it or leave it.
Theoden (eyes bug out)-You all want this??? Paid time off, hazard pay, family leave? In the middle of a war?!
Man #1- And a company car!
Theoden (looks at them as though they've grown two heads)- Um....a what?

(Off to the side, Legolas and Gimli snicker)
Legolas- Aren't you glad we aren't from Rohan, Gimli?
Gimli- Aye. I wouldn't want to be at THAT union meeting!

My writing and novels:

My Hobbit Fanfiction

My historical novel print and kindle version

My historical novels ebook version compatible with all ereaders

You can also find my novel at most major book retailers online (and for those outside the US who prefer a print book, you can find the print version at Book Depository). Search "Amazing Grace Amanda Longpre'" to find it.

Happy reading everyone!

I'm going to treat Lissuin's non-caption caption as an actual caption, since it made me snort.
(Was very tempted by the classic Ataahua caption, and kudos to Cirashala for screenplay development.)

For once I'm (nearly) speechless. Thanks, Alveric, for the snort of commendation. I'll get us a new photo pronto.
Cheers.
