The LOTR Caption Contest CXCVIII Can't Post

Thanks to Peter Pumpkinhead--no, sorry, Miss Melonhelm!Let the jocularity commence!



OK, so this one's also a bit meta. (Ignore the 'getty images' thing.)
Could be either what Frodo is saying, or what the conductor is saying, or something else...

These Lilliputians are most excellent musicians, [In reply to] Can't Post

and arrived to a great perfection in music, by the countenance and encouragement of the emperor, who is a renowned patron of the arts, though to Frodo's ear it seemed the scratchings of the nails of 10,000 mice on a chalkboard.

Lissuin is the Winner! [In reply to] Can't Post

Hard one to judge. My wife liked the orchestra jokes. But somehow the prospect of a mash-up of Gulliver's Travels and LOTR really got my attention. And the caption seemed Swiftian in its style as well.

Cheers, Alveric! [In reply to] Can't Post

I do admit to taking liberties with Swift's story. He was referring to mathematicians not musicians, but what's another "m" among friends, right? And then the Mice came trooping along on their own.

I'll use our extra hour from the NZ time change today to hunt up a suitable sequel. See you all soon-ish.
