The Freakin' Green Elf Shorts Map update

CyberPetra has finally rid Denmark of the 'Shorts. They are now safely ensconced in the mitts of Donn in Canada. So, with that in mind, I've updated the 'Shorts Map to show their latest global position:

As regular readers can see, I haven't yet redone the map as I've often threatened. I'll do it next time, I promise!

Anyway, Donn is holding the FGES Caption Competition as we speak. If you want to enter for a chance to feel the combustible fibres of the infamous 'Shorts rasping against your skin, then may I suggest you get yourself over to Donn's and leave a caption forthwith. I won't be entering again as I've already had the 'pleasure' of hosting the diabolical garment. However, any captions I do leave will be on behalf of Tim, who says he doesn't want the 'Shorts anywhere near his "awesome manparts" - his own words (and quite frankly, who are we to doubt him? I've even offered to inspect them and issue a certificate as to their awesomeness, but Tim has, strangely, yet to get back to me...) - but I think he secretly does!
For those few of you who have no idea what The Freakin' Green Elf Shorts are, click here for MJ's Definitive History.

Good luck!

P.S. Sorry I haven't got back to you in the comments of the last couple of posts, or even visited your own blogs lately, for that matter - Time has escaped me, but when I finally catch up to it, I'll pin it down so I can be more sociable.


  1. And here I thought you had been sucked into a black hole...

  2. I don't blame you for not being around that much. If I had an SP I'd probably never come up for air.

    Still, we are standing out there in the chilly morning, without cloaks. Could you do something about that please?

  3. Hopefully some deeply disturbed malcontents from Africa or rude funny bastards from South America will take a kick at the cat. It would be fun to see this go viral.

    I keep them locked up in a n old vault in the basement but it's like Poe's Tell Tale Heart thumping beneath the floor boards. I should hang them out on the back porch to scare off the Bears.

    Hopefully they'll be packed up and shipped off on the 31st! Thanks for the help.

  4. Humpf.

    Bloody blogger. It ate 3 of my attempts. I'm hoping #4 gets through in one piece.

    Hope time is soon yours.

  5. Did I really say that? Hmmm. Well, it does sound sort of like the sort of thing I'd say. So yes, that statement stands!

  6. Excellent work, IVD.

    I've updated my previous post to show the new and improved map.

    Would you please see to it that Petra gets a ceremonial robe if only to shut him up?

  7. I first read "Tim has escaped me" and thought that your time was now taken up with a stalking expedition, but then realized my reading error.

  8. Princess: It feels like I have. Constantly falling but never quite reaching the other side.

    'Petra: If only that were the reason for my lack of time.

    As for the cloak request, I'll see what I can do.

    Donn: It'd be great to let the Southern Hemisphere host the 'Shorts, but it seems that they've learned their lesson from just one wearing.

    Roses: I hope tim is soon mine, too.

    Oops! Blogger must have eaten the e.

    Tim: I tried searching for whereabouts you said it but it must have been in the comments as neither your blog nor mine comes up with the goods.

    MJ: Thank you.

    I keep forgetting about that wretched cloak for 'Petra. I'd better get on to it as I don't know how much more I can take!

    Snooze: Ah. The error is only in your reading. The fact is I seem to be on a constant stalking expedition where TIm is concerned.

  9. I love this competition... but I am rubbish at captions.
    And for starters, I thought the beaver was a bear...

  10. Tim: I've found it! You said it here about two thirds of the way down!
    I think I mentioned the inspection and issuing of a certificate a couple of posts later?

    Miss Scarlet: I find that a couple of drinks usually helps me to vomit forth a caption. Good luck!

  11. Well done with all your research!

    I'm still not wearing them.

  12. Less of the old.

    WV: eingna (someone calling me an 'enigma' with their mouth full. You been down the docks again?)
