This is seriously the coolest story I've heard in forever. People are reporting sightings of creepy Gnome who walks around the streets of a town in Argentina in the middle of the night. Here's a link to an actual cell phone video of this mystical creature! http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage/news/article902014.ece
HA HA HA! OK, if I was a little person I would be doing this EVERY SINGLE DAY. I would go so far as to say that I might even try to make a living out of it, chasing after people yelling "Where's my gold?!" Scaring groups of children at night, making adolescent boys scream like chicks and sending them to the hospital by scaring them so bad, like the little puss puss in this video. I think it's hysterical.
I'm not laughing at small people. Not that I think most would give a crap if I was, considering anybody can pretty much just laugh back at me all the same. Considering the public's fascination with the smaller folk lately with all the reality shows, Mini Me's, Leprechaun sequels, let alone midget porn, I'd say they have finally been able to find a respectable niche.
Back in the day (don't ask me for a specific day cause I can't remember having read this info quite a while ago, people of wealth and stature used to collect small people to be a part of their entourage as a status symbol. It even got to the point to where when supply could not be met, people found ways of making their own by submerging small children in barrels of gin and depriving them of food.
I don't know where I'm going with this, other than probably further down the P.C. spiral. But please, dont get SHORT, I'm only having a LITTLE fun.
