‘The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug’ Contest Results

We here at High-Def Digest love giving away free Blu-rays almost as much as Peter Jackson loves adding extra footage to his movies. Almost. Last week, we offered you a chance to win the Extended Edition of ‘The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug’. Let’s find the winner, shall we?

As explained in the original post, we challenged you to provide funny or clever captions for the following image:

Honorable Mentions

  1. William H: Whoa!!! Best…. Six Flags…. Ride…. EVER!!!!!
  2. Alex: More fun than a barrel full of monkeys!!

    I’m sorry guys. It had to be said.

  3. Lord Bowler: “If anyone sees a banjo player, RUN!!”
  4. Matt M: “Hey I just freed you and this is crazy, but jump in these barrels. You’ll live….maybe.”
  5. Kirby A: My name is Jack, Jack Daniels. I don’t often ride down a river in a barrel, but when I do I prefer single malt.
  6. Timcharger: Little (pun not intended) did they know, this was their Rosa Parks moment. The dwarves refused to give up their place in line at Disneyland’s River Barrel Ride. You-must-be-this-tall-to-ride is ruled unconstitutional years later as the result of these brave dwarves. No longer do dwarves today have the shame of “separate-but-equal” amusement park rides.
  7. Kyle: Fili: “Boy, I hope I don’t get left behind.”
    Kili: (Reading the book) “Nope, nothing in here, we should be good.”
  8. Daniel: If you smoke pipeweed, you will live in a barrel DOWN BY THE RIVER!!
  9. Chris M: I knew we were going to be scraping the bottom of the barrel by making 3 movies for one book but this is ridiculous.
  10. KiKS: “Oh No! Guys, Brace yourselves… Here comes the green screeeeeeeeeen!!!”
  11. Hector C: As you can see, Smaug has eaten us. But the battle is far from over. We’ll fight him from inside his stomach!
  12. Jason: And four, four barrels were given to Dwarves, who above all else, desire longer, extended cut scenes.
  13. Chris McC: When my agent said Peter Jackson had me over a barrel… I had no idea.
  14. NJScorpio: That look on your face when you realize you are stuck in a toll lane without any money.
  15. MiguelNH: Boy, these American Ninja Warrior tryouts get tougher every year
  16. Cliff G: I can’t believe we had to go back and do this again just for the extended version…
  17. Csm101: Far over the Misty Mountains cold
    Riding barrels down a watery road
    We met the guy from Dracula Untold
    Bathed a big red dragon in hot liquid gold
    Reclaimed the place where we once stayed
    Why in this movie no one gets laid
    Except for maybe Kili playing sick
    He just might score with that red-head chick
    Of all the Ardan dames to swoon
    It won’t get better than Elvish poon
    Far over the Misty Mountains cold…
  18. Ashish P: Ahh!! This is saltwater! I’m a freshwater dwarf!
  19. Deaditelord: A barrel of laughs my ass.
  20. Thomas B: Samuel Adams, (almost) Always a good decision!

The Winner!

All of those (and more!) were really great, but unfortunately we only have one copy of the disc to give away. This entry from David S. gave me the biggest laugh:

The dwarfs knew their fun was over when they saw Gandalf on the river bank shouting, “YOU SHALL NOT SPLASH!!!”

Congratulations to David for winning ‘The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug – Extended Edition‘ on Blu-ray, and thanks to everyone else for participating in our contest.


  1. Timcharger

    I was robbed!!!

    Where is my precious? I can’t find it. Josho Baggins, you took it!


    Csm101’s rhyme of “swoon” with “elvish poon”…
    …how can that NOT be the winner? 🙂

  2. KiKS

    Congrats David. In fact, the winner’s seat was pretty much fixed once your comment came in… Now, let’s hope someone would make a mashup for this scene (obviously, with the “PAAAASSSS!!!” being replaced by “SPLAAAASH!!!”)

    And Thanks Josh… Never thought that entry would get a mention… it was a surprise… pls keep more such contests coming, just for the sake of participation… 🙂
