"Creepy Gnome" Terrorizes town
« on: March 11, 2008, 03:40:41 pm »
Found this on Bungie.net

http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage/news/article902014.ece

apparently some guys in Argentina were talking about some fishing trip and decided to film it with his phone when they saw it.

 
Quote from:  link=topic=11734.msg500197#msg500197 date=1205275241
“I began to film a bit with my mobile phone while the others were chatting and joking.

"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."

Jose added that other locals had come forward to say they had spotted the gnome.

He said: “This is no joke. We are still afraid to go out - just like everyone else in the neighbourhood now.

"One of my friends was so scared after seeing that thing that we had to take him to the hospital.”

Of course there is NO possible way for it to be real but i decided to share it

In my opion its just another thing like bigfoot but still i thought it was interesting

When I saw the video I thought of a circus monkey in a pointy hat walking sideways, like they some times do. Any one else see that?

23 From there Elisha went up to Bethel. As he was walking along the road, some youths came out of the town and jeered at him. "Go on up, you baldhead!" they said. "Go on up, you baldhead!" 24 He turned around, looked at them and called down a curse on them in the name of the LORD. Then two bears came out of the woods and mauled forty-two of the youth.

If they wanted to fake something scary, why the hell did they choose a gnome?

I'm not saying it isn't fake, I'm just saying the people who did it are either completely high, or very very funny...

Frankly, I can't see how anyone would be scared of gnomes.  They're small, so they pose little threat, yet they're not small enough to gain the creepy factor that spiders do.

I personally think the boys faked it.

They seemed to be filming for absoloutley no reason prior to Bilbo's arrival, and didn't seem inclined to investigate when they saw it.

Actually, people in argentina are brought up to fear gnomes. It's like living in a family that believes in ghosts. So, like ghost sightings and haunted houses theres plenty of gnome sightings in argentina.
