Caption Contest 42!!!!! - Poor Legolas!
" Legolas was heartbroken after he learned his supposedly 'priceless' family heirloom vase was nothing more than a cheap goblin knock-off, at Lothlorien's first hosted 'Antiques Roadshow'."
Poor Legolas! He'd tell us what he's hearing but the grief is still too near. Nevertheless, we can come up with some captions that let us know what's going through his grief filled mind. Or at least what's going on in the picture.

Remember, Tolkien Online is a family friendly site, so keep captions clean.
Tip: Short captions usually work better than long ones. You don't have to explain too much, let the caption and image work for themselves.
As always, the only prize is the satisfaction of a job well done!
Last week's winner was Todd Martinez with "No, Arwen, you put your right arm back in, THEN shake it all about." To see this and other past caption contests, click the link at the top of this page.
This week's winner was *very* difficult to pick-- we had quite a few very good captions! Thus in additon to the winner, I've decided to include a few "runners up" (there were more than a few good ones, I just can't put them ALL here).
The winner was Lonely_Mountain_Hermit with " Legolas was heartbroken after he learned his supposedly 'priceless' family heirloom vase was nothing more than a cheap goblin knock-off, at Lothlorien's first hosted 'Antiques Roadshow'."
"Orlando auditions for the part of Galadriel"
"*gives the correct solution for the game of Clue*
Mr. Legolas in Lothlórien with the pitcher of water..."
"While the rest of the fellowship rests, Legolas resumes his job of door-to-door sales to make money for the remainder of the trip."
"I cross half of Middle Earth. I brave the Mines of Moria. I fight orcs. I fight trolls. And I even survive a balrog--a freakin' balrog! And all I get is this stupid vase! "
"Multiplying the wind resistance by the coefficient and squaring it by the angle of the hexagon target area... (calculates on fingers)... it just doesn't make sense, there's no way I could have missed that Orc in Moria!"
"Legolas is devastated to realize that there is no Gap of Rohan....not even a Banana Republic " (I confess. It took me three days to "get" this one. I was walking in the mall, and the lightbulb went off-- and I burst out laughing - EA).
"Orli tries to maintain Elvish dignity and poise despite the fact that the hobbits managed to get "John Jacob Jingleheimer Schmidt" stuck in his head."
