50 percent of Icelandic people believe in elves, for real.

And they use the same justification for their belief that those who believe in god do:  just because you can’t see them, doen’st mean that they aren’t there.

I think it’s rather sweet that there are some people who believe in elves.  I wonder how many Irish people believe in leprechauns.

This explains how Bjork got to be so flaky.

I find that stat difficult to believe.

However, it is the land of the Sagas.

Absence of evidence is not evidence of absence, to them anyway.

Do you remember in the film, ‘Castaway’, Tom Hanks began to personify a volleyball?  He even gave it a name, and almost drowned trying to rescue it when the current carried it away.

No need to go into lonely pet owners and their pets.

Anyway, if you’re alone in nature for extended periods, moths begin to look like little people with wings.  Heck, they are little people with wings.  Same DNA, same need to eat and drink and get layed.  Same mortality!  Alas, poor Luna!  I knew her well!

In the film, ‘Castaway’, Tom Hanks, played a modern-day Robinson Crusoe, shipwrecked on an uninhabited island.  In his loneliness, he began to personify a basketball that chanced to float ashore with him from the wreck.  He called it Wilson.  Wilson sat beside him at the campfire, and he could tell the ball how his day went.  He almost drowned trying to rescue his friend when Wilson fell off a raft and the current carried ‘him’ away.

Actually I got that statistic from The Times.  I don’t know where they got their statistics from.

And there it is - the human desire to anthropomorphize everything.

Headline in the Seward Peninsula Beacon:

‘Elves Presley seen in a bar in downtown Gnome, AK.’

I’m wondering if that meant a ‘bar’ or a ‘bear’, which was also seen in downtown Gnome.  It was taking a mailbox apart.  Apparently someone had mailed a box of sausages.

All that really matters is if Sarah Palin can see Gnome Alaska from her house. If she can, that I would say that she has seen Gnomes, and knowing her probably believes in them.

Believes in them, and shot one.  At least, like Dick Cheney, she thought it was one when she pulled the trigger. 

Sarah:  (to detective)  It was walking sideways and had a pointy head.

Detective:  Sarah, as we speak they are picking birdshot out of John’s ass.  I suggest you just tell the reporters that he looked like an endangered species.

Dinner at the Palins - Scene 1

Todd:  Sarah, I don’t think it’s a good idea to hang the gnome’s head in the dining room.

Bristol:  It’s cute daddy.

Track:  No.  I agree with dad.  It’s weird.  Mom, why’d you have to shoot it anyway?  They’re rare.  You just imagined that it gave you the finger.

Sarah:  Don’t be such a sissy, Track.  I hope they make a man out of you in Iraq.  When someone gives you the finger you shoot them, right Todd?

Track:  It was trying to offer you a gemstone.  That’s what dwarfs do.  They mine gemstones.  Hi ho, hi ho.  Remember?

Sarah:  Bullshit.  It was walking sideways, circling me.  They’re pagan little SOB’s.

Todd:  What’d you do with that ruby anyway?  How many carots was it again?

Bristol:  Why can’t I go to Iraq?  I’d like to plug a few terrorists.

Todd:  Bristol, eat your salad!  Track, there’s a lot of hashish being passed around in the Green Zone; I don’t want you to . . .

Track:  Dad!  For cripes sake!  God!  I think that gnome just blinked!

Todd:  Mom, do you really think Track should go to . . .?  What if he . . .?

Track:  (suddenly getting up from the table) I’m taking that gnome down right now!  It’s jinxing me!  Do you know what happens when you kill gnomes?

Yeah, well I’m only about half convinced Iceland is real.
