The Gnome Invasion

by Alethea (writer), Los Angeles, February 07, 2009


After years of documented sightings, residents of several areas of Argentina have supposedly captured on film the elusive "creepy gnome" or possibly..."gnomes".

Back in March of 2008, a small bunch of teenage boys in General Guemes, Argentina were recording each other chatting and joking with a cell phone.  "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."

The teenagers managed to capture this gnome-like creature onto their cell phone.

The boys affirmed that this was "no joke".

A few months later, another reported gnome sighting occurred in Clodomira, Argentina which is over 200 miles away.  Again at night, some teenagers were hanging out and claimed to hear a "loud, rustling noise" from behind them.  The "dwarf-like" creature was described as "wearing dark clothes" and having "a pointy head..." while "barking like a dog - but running sideways on two legs. It headed off towards the football stadium.” 

Interestingly, Aldegonda Alvarz, a photographic expert of the Universidad Nacional de Santiago del Estero, said that, “This video footage seems credible. We could be looking at another ‘petido orejudo’ - small being.”

Odder still, many reports of gnome-like creatures have been reported previous to these incidents, and since, many more continue to pour in.  Meanwhile, a town's mayor and chief of police states they have known about these "gnomes' existence" for about 20 years. 

Outside of Argentina, another video has surfaced originating from a 27 year old from Mexico City.  He states on his YouTube page that things in his house frequently go missing only to reappear a while later.  He was playing with his cousins while he managed to capture the gnome in question that he described as being about 30 centimeters. 

 What are these things?

Critics purport that it must be some sort of "speedy" child or an animal.  Initially, I thought it was odd that the first two videos were from teenage boys hanging out at night in different areas of Argentina.  Then it seems that another was found in Mexico.  Could one be genuine and the other a farce?  Are all three pranks? Prank or not, it is apparent that the local citizens of these towns are afraid to go out into their neighborhood.  I think that in itself warrants further investigation.

Very funny article.  After watching the videos, Clearly the roaming gnome must have a good PR person to keep his creepiness at bay.

I wonder if there is any connection between these videos and this link I have posted.

I have looked in awe and disgust at this leaked government video for about a year now. A very small humanoid creature is dissected on this leaked video.

Decide for yourself.

Bill.... Aye! John, that was a very interesting link, thank you.  The skin looks very rubbery though, it's very odd.

Gnomes?  Gnomes?  Read it just for the title.  Who’s a gnome?  Didn’t know which was more interesting, the gnomes or that this Ellie M’s self esteem is so obviously dependent upon HOW her comments HERE are received AND whose ONLY life is so obviously to obsessively track how her comments are rated here.   Wtf  Ellie M, hear that "loud, rustling noise" from behind you?  It’s the gnomes.  People see the gnomes, and compulsively track how their comments are rated, because reality is too big for their tiny notion of the universe.

 “Local citizens of these towns are afraid to go out into their neighborhood” because of something that is “about 30 centimeters.”   30 centimeters equals about 1 foot.   Previously there were only three known kinds of gnomes:  1.) David the Gnome 2.) South Park Underpants Gnomes 3.) The "Creepy Gnome."  Now thanks to Ellie M we have a fourth species, the Whining Doormat Gnome, known for their low-esteem paranoia the world has to love me and public complaining of how much some so hate me.

Gnomes ;) are obviously illegal aliens that are here to unite the world and finally end the totalitarian reign of Santa’s Giant Elf.

LOL Low self esteem, yeah that's the reason hahaha!  Funny stuff.  I was making a point to the powers that be of the Broo community that making comments about being voted down is utterly annoying.  Mission accomplished!  And thanks for helping prove my point Ryan.
