Freakin Green Elf Shorts Lost in Chicago Dienstag, 13. Juni 2006, 01:56:36

Last October, April from Canada won the Swiss Instalment of The Freakin Green Elf Shorts Caption Competition with the following poem:

Roses are red, Violets are blue. You've got the Green Elf Shorts, and I've got poo

So I sent them over to Canada. It took them a while to get there, but it didn't take April long to come up with a, shall we say, interesting picture featuring herself, a stuffed toy donkey, and the Freakin Green Elf Shorts.

The caption winning that particular competition was equally interesting. So interesting, in fact, that I dare not reproduce it here. But let me introduce the winner (whom I don't know personally): A certain Herge Smith from Chicago.

Which finally brings us to the title of this longwinded story: Arriving in the Windy City on December 12, 2005, the trail of The Freakin Green Elf Short apparently disappears in the dim-lit backstreets of Chicago, never to be seen by the Internet ever again. Where are you, O Freakin Green Elf Shorts? Has the Chicago Mob drowned you in the river, with or without Mr Herge Smith? Or did he sell them on Ebay and now enjoys a life of luxury on his private island in the Caribbean? We do not know! We fear the worst!

Or perhaps I'm just too dumb to find the next winner.
