Freakin' Green Elf Shorts Caption Competition Continues!

Ms. Scarlet, as seen in her previous FGES competition

Big news for fans of the Freakin' Green Elf Shorts! Ms. Scarlet, the current keeper of the Shorts, just oh, so casually announced a date for the long awaited continuation of the FGES Caption Competition. You can check out the deets (brief as they are) at her blog, but if you can't be arsed, basically the competition will begin on the 1st of January 2022, and a winner will be announced on the 16th* of January (GMT), of the same year even! Please enter your captions, and let's keep those Shorts a-movin'!

In other FGES news, I noticed the other day that the link to my Continuing History of the Shorts, over in the upper right corner of my blog, was not working. Upon further investigation, I discovered that a couple of extra letters had somehow gotten into the URL embedded in the image, rendering it useless. I don't know how that happened, or how long it had been going on. The problem has been fixed, and my apologies to anyone who may have attempted to use that defective link.

My Continuing History of the FGES will be updated presently to include these most recent developments, along with a few tangential references to the Shorts, which deserve to be in the record, but I was waiting for more definite news of their fate before adding to the history. Ah, who am I kidding? I'm just lazy!

Also, IDV was kind enough to create an updated map of the global travels of the FGES. It can be seen at the top of this blog. Thanks, IDV.

*Updated January 2, 2022 (PST) to reflect change by Ms. Scarlet of date of announcement of winner from her original post. Current caption competition is HERE.


  1. It is wonderful, glorious news indeed, dear Rimpy! It has even got me thinking about a new map!!

    1. It certainly looks like you've run out of room for the next winner, whoever they may be.

  2. A round of applause for Mr. DeVice's map! And a tip of the hat to Rimpy for his continuing coverage of his momentous event.

    Whenever I see the word "tangenital" I think of nude sun bathing.

  3. I have it all planned, it's going to be glorious - topical and Christmassy all in one shot!
