The Freakin' Green Elf Short Competition!

Folks, you know you've been waiting for it, and now, it's here.

Karen passed on the prize to me, and I must pass the prize on in turn. It will go, my friends to the winner of....


You can get the skinny on the freakin' green elf shorts competition from Kim if you don't know what the hell is going on here, but here's the deal: the funniest caption for this pic is the next winner of the freakin' elf shorts!

Deadline for captions: GMT 10pm Friday 17th June 2005. (I know the year is probably a bit of overkill, but I don't want entries coming in for the rest of my life!)

Here's the pic! Make the Owls laugh - and like I tell Mrs Owl, I like 'em short n' snappy!

I have at least 10 comments for this picture, which I must say is FABULOUS, but I don't dare say them for fear of winning the damn things again! Great Job!!

I'll pass on the shorts, but here's a caption:

"After his return from the war, even Frodo's closest friends had to admit that the little hobbit had changed."

The moment he put them on, Spirit of Owl knew the elf shorts had a pixie curse on them.

The gnomes had a feeling that their instructor in the lost art of ElfNinjaism was just full of shit.
I know it sucks, but it's early and I've been cut off from caffeine- I had to say something though because this picture is in a class of it's own. ~ I am not worthy ~

Actually I was insinuating that Kimmy looked like a deliciously slender hot babe in those shorts thus making the shorts look quite dinky.

When Mr and Mrs Gnome told "baby gnome" that he was really adopted and his real parents were Freakin Elv's in Green Shorts his reaction was to dress up as a Freakin Elf in Freakin Green Elf Shorts and try to force the identity of his real parents out of Mr and Mrs Gnome with his trusty spear and potty hat (the viking hat was to protect his identity while he was on the run after brutally slaying Mr and Mrs Gnome)
