The mistery of the christmas gnome.

Posted by Kerstin and Herve (Zurich, Switzerland) on 21 December 2005 in Plant & Nature.

I resolved the mistery of the christmas gnome, which is haunting christmas trees and eating every candies and other chocolates that can be usually found around it.
I placed a cam with an automatic IR sensor and captured 4 pictures of the monster.
The monster noticed the cam and fled after trying to steal some candies. The next step wille be to place a trap to capture it alive and sell it to life experimentation laboratories or to a circus.

Hahaha ... that is one ugly gnome! I've heard that they are attracted to high tech gear, such as mobile phones and camera lens ... ask Kerstin to buy you lots of electronic gear so that you can catch this hideous beast once and for all!

If Aaron is correct you should get 10 more of those flat TV's I see in the background to confuse it. Good holiday fun - hope you two have a Merry Christmas.
