Evil Gnomes Stalk Villagers





Are creepy gnomes terrorizing the town of General Guemes in Argentina? The unbelievable video below was captured by teenager Jose Alvarez who was hanging out with a group of friends after a fishing trip. According to Jose, "Suddenly we heard something - a weird noise as if someone was throwing stones. We looked to one side and saw that the grass was moving. To begin with we thought it was a dog but when we saw this gnome-like figure begin to emerge we were really afraid."

Other people in General Guemes claim to have spotted the gnome in recent days. They say it can be recognized by its odd way of walking sideways. Now many villagers are too frightened to leave the house at night. I gotta say, the video is definitely strange. What do you think?

Maybe it's a short dude who likes wearing pointy hats and walking sideways... Reminds me of the Goosebumps episode. Do you think it'll freeze if you shine a light on it?

I think thats awesome too, perhapes though, it's a Saint Patriks Day prank, except the guy got it wrong and is pretending to be a knome instead of a lepracon.

Gnomes are evil. Always have been and always will be. *hides* Good thing I don't live in Argentina.

I have always been freaked out by garden gnomes.....The guys in the background dont seem very bothered, though.

The first picture in this post makes me think how marvelous it would be to get a bunch of plastic lawn gnomes and have them "appear" in all the neighborhood yards overnight.

There are many practical reasons that would be a bad idea. Which is a shame.

Ok, at first I just thought it was a plastic garden gnome someone was pullling around, but it's LEGS moved. Invisible Turtle: that's the first thing I thought of when I saw this.

hobbes said...

that is so weird. yeah, I thought it was just someone pushing it but you could totally see it move by itself...

I really don't know what to say. Are those guys speaking spanish in the background?

Ananka: When are you putting Jin Ai's drawings in Meet the Irregular's and are you ever gonna tell us when book three comes out.
