From John: Hi, John Cook here with November’s LOTR caption contest. Considering how my site’s been invaded by Orlando Bloom fans lately, this week’s cartoon features the famous orc killing contest between Legolas and Gimli. Gimli boasts about how many orcs he’s killed, while the reader gets to write Legolas’ response. The entries are rated by readers with the funniest punchline voted on in a week’s time. The contest ends Wed 12 November so come check it out at:
