Hobbit Caption Contest CL Can't Post

Ah the beautiful simplicity of Roman numerals: CL at last!
For a slight variation, this image is from the 1990 graphic adaptation by Charles Dixon and David Wenzel, for Eclipse Books. In my opinion, it's a very text-heavy adaptation, it should have been 4 or 5 issues rather than 3. But quite nice.
So here is our old buddy. Ignore the fragments of speech balloons. Maybe the caption is what Gollum's saying, or maybe the skull? And let's not have the skull saying 'Gollum, you look a little drawn'...

Bilbo thought that this 'Gollum' was a very sketchy character. // [In reply to] Can't Post

Other Inklings, thoroughly bored with Elves, applauded Tolkien's sketch of a new character. // [In reply to] Can't Post

The loss of a contact lens added an extra horror to Gollum's plight. [In reply to] Can't Post

Winner! [In reply to] Can't Post

Because pants!
Seriously, Gollum wearing trousers?? Logically, I guess so, but somehow it's wrong. Not to mention the pocketses.
