LOTR Caption Contest CXCX Can't Post

...which my rudimentary roman numerology (and Google) tells me is our two-hundrededeth captioning comp! Woohoo!

Let's celebrate with a little Gondorian royalty-to-be, shall we? What's happening here?



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.

Something is wrong. And the fault lies with me. We went CCIX (209), CCX, CCXI, then CCXII (212), and then I somehow switched to... CXCVIII, which... doesn't make any sense. CXCVIII would be 198, right? C is 100, then X short of C is 90, V is 5, plus III.So after CCXII should be CCXIII, then CCIX, so that the current one should be CCXX. Right? Right?
And I presume to call myself a nerd! Mea Culpa.

Aragorn, we've been on this march for days now, and yet... [In reply to] Can't Post

... that beard stubble has not grown into a beard--nor have you shaved. Is this some sort of Dunadain super power?

But all worthy things that are in peril . . . those are my care.
For I also am a steward. Did you not know?'

(Thanks for putting me right, Alveric.)

We've all felt the pain of Lego at some time, right? Well done cats16 - to you lies the burden of the next competition! Smile

Noticed this just now while making up the new contest. Looks like we're on CCXXI (221).
