    This is obviously a cover-up. The Travelocity Gnome escaped to Argentina and the British government found him and made this cover story.

    Anyway, that article was nice. :p

    i love how they say gnome aren`t real. That is just a term for midgets.


    At least that is what I call them.

    If anything`s validity is to be questioned, it`s Snopes`. Although they did a good job of analyzing the general aspects of this and compared with other cracks, it does not explain exactly what occured. Yes, people film abosoultely nothing for the sake of filming. What the drat do you think YouTube is? Also, they did nothing to say what the gnome in the video was. CG? I think not.

    I`m going with the Travelocity gnome theory. The dude is just scouting around in Argentina for the summer crowd.

    Giacona, I agree that this particular Snopes entry is not the best but do you not agree that Snopes did a bang-up job investigating that rabid legend of poo-drug Jenkem http://www.snopes.com/crime/warnings/jen...

    Yeah, it`s the Travelocity gnome. Me and him went down to Argentina for a few weeks for an early spring break.

    What can I say? Me and him are tight like that.

    I just found that there`s tons of people elsewhere online that believe it`s the Travelocity gnome...I was stunned, I didn`t realize that many people knew.

    Snopes didn`t tell us how it wasn`t the Travelocity gnome so I`m with that theory all the way.

    This is the worst snopes article I`ve ever seen....

    What they debunk? What evidence did they cite? It`s basically them saying they don`t believe it. That`s an opinion, not a debunk.

    "Why would teenagers film nothing?" ... duh...
    "How could they zoom in so fast?!" ... duh ...

    "The sun is like the weekly world news". The Sun is the most read nespaper in the UK. It`s not high quality, but it`s not the weekly world news.

    I never thought the thing was real but ffs, you`re supposed to be checking things snopes, not just running round with a false stamp.

    If you look at the video it looks a bit like a remote control dog walking with something glued to the top of it.

    "The sun is like the weekly world news". The Sun is the most read nespaper in the UK. It`s not high quality, but it`s not the weekly world news.

    most people who dont read the sun generally have the opinion that it is. i mean, it had a story about a gnome in.

    i have to becompletly objective here, im not saying it is or it isnt and the arguments given for it being faked is sound however, while they say its faked, they dont say how or even what the thing is. if its not a gnome, then what is that thing taking a sideways stroll across the street.if you have to prove its for real you also have to adiquatley prove that it isnt for real. just saying.

    And the bad quality of the video is due to the cellphone camera... most cellphone camera will give crappy result like that in the dark.
