Caption Contest 44: Conan revisited

Jeff Rients did a great job guest-hosting the Caption Contest a few weeks ago, but there were some other panels from the same issue that I thought would have also made good caption-contest-fodder. So I'm going to use one of the alternates from that week to see what you can come up with:


As always, the winner will receive a free black and white illustration of whatever he or she likes from yours truly, so put on those thinking caps and get busy! Keep it to no more than three total entries per person, left in the comments to this post, and relatively clean and you're home free.

Good luck everyone!
