The Freakin’ Green Elf Shorts Caption Competition!

REMINDER: Submit your captions by midnight Pacific Standard Time on Sunday, June 3rd. Note to those of you in the UK: That’s 8:00 am on Monday, June 4th.

At last! Here’s your chance to enter The Freakin’ Green Elf Shorts Caption Competition!

Though it pains me to remove them from my head, the time has come for the thoroughly stained Freakin’ Green Elf Shorts to move on to their next foster home.

“What do I have to do to win The Freakin’ Green Elf Shorts?” you ask.

Take a long, hard look at the photo above of MJ (that's me) wearing The Freakin’ Green Elf Shorts.

Create a caption.

Post your caption in the comments section.

I’ll choose my favourite caption and post the winner’s name on June 4th.

“May I enter more than once?”

Enter as many captions as you wish, as often as you like.

“What happens if I win?”

If you’re chosen as the lucky winner, I’ll send The Shorts to you.

If you’re in another country, I’ll also send you a souvenir of my country, Canada, along with The Shorts. Bonus!

Then it’s your turn to take a photograph of yourself wearing The Shorts and post it on your blog.

“I don’t have a blog or a website. Can I still enter?”

No. You’re shite out of luck. Set yourself up with a blog because if you win, you must post a pic of yourself wearing The Shorts.

We all want to see you make a fool of yourself like the previous winners have all done.

“If I send you my credit card number and access to my bank account, will you declare me the winner?”

Bribery will not be tolerated.

So far I have received bribes involving wads of cash, seasons tickets to Alton Towers, and offers of sexual favours.

Grovelling and begging is looked upon favourably but will not win you The Shorts.

“How long do I have to enter?”

The competition closes at midnight PST on Sunday, June 3rd.

The winner will be announced on Monday, June 4th at whatever time I get around to it.

“What if I don’t want to win The Shorts but I want to tell you how stupid you look in The Shorts?”

If you don’t want to win The Shorts you can still leave a comment.

Just be sure to let me know it’s a comment and not a caption.

“Are those stains removable?”

No amount of scrubbing will remove the stains.

And why would you want to?

“Will you wash The Shorts before you send them to me?”

Again, why would you want me to?

“I’m new here. What’s this all about?”

If you’re wondering what this competition is all about, read The Definitive History of The Freakin’ Green Elf Shorts.

"Where have I seen this photo of you before?"

I gave you a sneak preview a few days ago. Didn't you see what the elf is holding?

Good luck, bitches!

REMINDER: Submit your captions by midnight Pacific Standard Time on Sunday, June 3rd. Note to those of you in the UK: That’s 8:00 am on Monday, June 4th.

Tomorrow! Monday! The Freakin’ Green Elf Shorts Caption Competition!

But meanwhile…

I’m on a winning streak! Just last week I won SID’s “Parting Words" contest where we had to submit a badly drawn pic of ourselves with our dying last words. As seen by my entry here…

And now...

As much as it hurts Martin and John to admit this, I’m the first winner of the Martin And John 'Post of the Week Award'! Details of their award here. Thanks fellas!

Lucky me! I won it for “The Definitive History of The Freakin’ Green Elf Shorts” posting and speaking of Elf Shorts…

Come back Monday for your chance to enter The Freakin’ Green Elf Shorts Caption Competition!

I’ll be posting a photo of myself wearing The Shorts and all you have to do is create a caption and you could be wearing The Shorts next.

Coming Soon… The Freakin’ Green Elf Shorts Caption Competition

The Definitive History of The Freakin’ Green Elf Shorts

100 % polyester. Green with red trim and jingle bells. Made in China. Mens XL. Front fly opening for easy access. Stained.

This history of The Freakin’ Green Elf Shorts covers only the first nine years of the contest. For an updated history covering this period and into the future, please visit Rimpy Rimpington's Continuing History of the Freakin' Green Elf Shorts.


Ohio, USA. Christmas 2004.

Andrea Knapp (a British ex-pat) buys a pair of novelty Elf Shorts for her husband George as a gag gift.

For a laugh, Andi takes a photograph of George wearing the shorts and posts the pic on her blog.

Andi decides to turn it into a caption competition, not thinking ANYONE would want to win them.

“Of course,” laughs Andi, “the blogging world decided otherwise!”

ANDREA KNAPP: Queen of the Elves and creator of the Freakin’ Green Elf Shorts Caption Competition


The general idea of the Freakin’ Green Elf Shorts Caption Competition is to post a photo of yourself on your blog, wearing The Shorts. Whoever comes up with the best caption wins The Shorts.

If you’re the current holder of The Shorts and the next winner is from a different country, remember to send the winner a souvenir of your country along with The Shorts.


Back to Andrea who posted the very first Freakin’ Green Elf Shorts Caption Competition entry here.

Behold! The first person to wear The Freakin’ Green Elf Shorts: Andrea’s husband George…

Winning caption (by Frally) for George’s pic…
"I worked in Santa's Workshop and all I got were these lousy shorts"

After much soul-searching and sleepless nights, a winner was declared.

Andi lovingly packed up The Shorts and sent them off, along with some U.S. souvenirs, to their new foster home in Christchurch, New Zealand.


Here’s the first winner, FRALLY, to model them…

Winning caption (by Jon) for Frally’s pic...
"Peter Pan rejoiced as his sex-change was complete!"

Read Frally’s Elf postings here and here.


The Freakin’ Green Elf Shorts were now on their way (from Frally in New Zealand) to JON in Redcar, England.

Unfortunately, Jon’s blog is now defunct so we can’t read his Shorts postings. But a pic survives to document the glory that is Jon in the Freakin’ Green Elf Shorts…


No doubt about it. This is when The Shorts started to get overstretched.

Winning caption (by Kim) for Jon’s pic…
“Hmmmm.... Heels or flats, What would Jesus do?”


Next in line for the Freakin’ Green Elf Shorts? Comely KIM in Ohio.

Winning caption (by Karen) for Kim’s pic...
"This elf costume rides up my ass more than Santa when he's drunk and randy."

Link to Kim’s Elf Shorts posting here.


Onward to KAREN in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

Yes indeed, the first landing of The Freakin’ Green Elf Shorts in Canada!

We don’t have a photo of Karen in The Shorts so instead, here’s a pic of a woman in a Maple Leaf bikini…

The Maple Leaf: Canada’s national symbol
Winning caption (by Spirit of Owl) for Karen’s pic …
"And another thing," said the elf, "I faked my orgasms too."

The photo above is probably a close representation of what Karen looked like in the photo. Just use your imagination and add Elf Shorts. And a banana.


Now back to the UK to SPIRIT OF OWL (aka Neil White) in Bradford, Yorkshire, England.

Winning caption (by Strude) for Spirit of Owl’s pic…
“I have to warn ya, me wee ladies, I may be drunk.”

Read about it here.

And here.


On to STRUDE in Salt Lake City, Utah, USA.

The stains may have worsened here though I’m not one to point the finger.

Winning caption (by PuppDaddy) of Strude’s pic …
"The Peter Pan understudy would mysteriously disappear for entire rehearsals, then complain that his legs were asleep & he'd lost feeling in his toes."


Then to PUPPDADDY in State College, Pennsylvania, USA.

PuppDaddy strikes a dashing, superhero pose…

Winning caption (by Matthias) for PuppDaddy’s pic…
“Elf Begins” (inspired by the release of the film “Batman Begins”)


Then on to MATTHIAS in Bern, Switzerland.

Winning caption (by April Pissoff) for Matthias’ pic…
Roses are Red
Violets are Blue
You've got the Green Elf Shorts
I've got poo

Read about it here.

And here.


Back to Canada (yay!) where APRIL PISSOFF shows us what it takes to win the Freakin’ Green Elf Shorts …

Winning caption (by Herge Smith) for April’s pic…
"He didn't know what was the most kinky, the elf shorts, the mask, the interspecies rutting or his snazzy white ankle socks."

Read about it here. And here.


The Shorts cross over The Pond once more to England to HERGE SMITH.

Legend has it that Herge was the LONGEST HOLDER OF THE SHORTS EVER!

Herge even took them on vacation to Malvern and the west coast of Scotland.

Winning caption (by Ship Creak) for Herge’s pic...
"Oh, I can't; someone's been here already."

Read about it here. And here.


The Shorts made their way to SHIP CREAK in the UK who photographed this low-budget porn shoot for us in his bedroom…

Winning caption (by SID) for Ship Creak’s pic…
"There's no place like Gnome"

Read about it here. And here.


And now, moving along to the two winners I know best: SID in Northern Ireland and then Steve in England.

Between these two dubious characters, The Freakin’ Green Elf Shorts would become stained beyond recognition. No scrubbing on my part could erase the stainage so I apologize to the next recipient who wins them after me.


The Freakin’ Green Elf Shorts first time on the Emerald Isle!

Here’s our SID (Stupid Irish Daddy). Revel in his humiliation.

*stifles peals of laughter*

Winning caption (by Steve) for SID’s pic…
Verne Troyer and Bernard Manning caught on camera rehearsing their parts for Andrew Lloyd Webber’s latest smash hit - “Crying Game:The Musical”

Read about it here.


Now to our STEVE (England’s finest postie) in Dorset, England.

Steve vogues for the camera…

The winning caption (by me, MJ) for Steve’s pic was a poem. Allow me to explain.

This poem is about Steve’s fag hag wife Carly. She’s tarted herself up on Christmas Eve awaiting the return home of her beloved Steve. She’s hoping for a night of the old in-out-in-out. But closet-case Steve shows up on the doorstep with a “poofy old queer” i.e. Steve’s poofter pal John (aka Piggy). It’s a true story!

A Fag Hag’s Christmas

‘Twas the night before Christmas and somewhere in Dorset
Carly put on her high heels and corset
The sex toys were placed on the mantle with care
In hopes that her Stevie soon would be there.
The kids in their beds were all safely tucked
“Let Steve be here soon and please let me get fucked!
Carly awaited the jolly old elf
But he took so damn long she got started herself
When out on the porch there arose such a clatter
She tripped o’er the vibrator cord to see what was the matter
When what to her wandering eyes should appear
But a postie in elf shorts and a poofy old queer
Steve spoke not a word but reached under his sac
Anal beads and a dildo pulled out of his crack
“I’ve been havin’ some fun with this Yorkshire fairy
You’re too smooth, Carly. I like ‘em hairy.
Carly smiled at the pair and invited them in
I’ll put on some Kylie, help yourself to the gin
Steve exclaimed as he raised his glassful of cheer
“I’m homo for the holidays, get used to it dear!

Read about it here and here.

BACK TO CANADA (Third time in Canada!):

Now it’s my turn to don The Shorts and subject myself to the ridicule of the masses.

Read about my caption competition here and here.

MJ struts her stuff in The Shorts and asks for captions.

Winning caption (by Inexplicable DeVice) for MJ’s pic…
"Ladyboy MJ quickly covers her 5 o'clock shadow and Adam's apple with the Elf Shorts as she catches sight of her next punter."


I’ve bonded with The Shorts and cling to them the way they cling to me.

But it’s time for them to go to their new foster home with Inexplicable DeVice.

Drumroll please…

Here lies Inexplicable DeVice in all his glory as he awaits the next winner to come along and remove The Shorts from his scrawny body.

You can read all about his competition here (complete with loads of captions) and read the results here.

Winning caption (by Eroswings) for Inexplicable DeVice’s pic…

IDV thighs,
IDV thighs,
Every morning you greet me.
Long and White,
Smooth and Bright,
You look horny to meet me.

Blossom among Hoes
May you Bloom and Glow
Bloom and Glow forever

IDV thighs
IDV thighs
Be STD free forever


(You know you want to click to enlarge)

Winning caption (by Tatas) for Eroswings’ pic…

Them elf shorts they don't fit,
He needs to use them to cover his bits.
He holds on to his hat as the wind picks up,
For hours he'll be getting sand out from his butt.

Eroswings wanted you to hit him with your best shot and you can see his competition here.

Winning caption (by CyberPete) for Tatas’ pic…

With boots of rubber
waiting for her lubber
ready for action
with decent traction
bum in place
and hidden face
the shorts so snug
you can see her rug
but gentlemen beware
and tread with care
the hedge clippers are ready
so keep it steady
if not she will snip
and it won't your lip.

England’s Miss Scarlet was forced to rescue The Shorts from Beast’s filthy lair.

As you know, Beast has hygiene issues and reportedly has been wearing The Shorts to bed each night in place of his SpongeBob boxer shorts.

Miss Scarlet broke into Beast’s sleeping pit and gingerly removed The Shorts from the floor with a pair of tongs. She proceeded to scrub them with a Brillo pad, whilst dressed in a hazmat suit.

Miss Scarlet informs us that following a rigorous scrubdown and a complex sterilization process, The Shorts will are ready for their next lucky winner.

The winner will be announced on Saturday 9th June 2012 @ 12 noon BST [British Summer Time]

Blogging Roundup

A peek at ‘the week that was’ with a spoonful of Infomaniac’s readers.

Well, hosers, I’ve been pressed for time this week so you’ll have to make do with this “Reader’s Digest Condensed” version of the Blogging Roundup. I’ll get ‘round to the rest of you when I can.

Before we get started, I’d just like to say, eh, that’s it’s the May Two Four weekend (aka Victoria Day) here in The Great White North and I have the day off. Beauty, eh?

Where’s your beers, you knobs?

Are you ready for the Blogging Roundup? Let’s begin with Yorkshire’s favourite poofs…

Caution: NSFW photos ahead. And not just the pic of Martin and John.


The bloggers formerly known as Tazzy and Piggy. Martin, your bra strap is showing!

If you’re wondering where regulars Tazzy and Piggy have gone, they’re now in the Witness Protection Programme and have assumed new identities as “Martin and John.”

You’ll notice them in the comments as “M and J” … a little too close to “MJ” don’t you think? Although, to be fair, they’ve changed it from “M&J” which was even more confusing.

If you haven’t already updated your blogroll, here’s their new URL

Shockingly, with their new identities, they’ve even become a little more polite. The cunts.


SID ran a contest, asking us to submit a badly drawn pic of ourselves with our dying last words.

And guess who won the contest? Me! MJ!!!

Here’s my winning entry.

Ta, SID. Hey, wait a minute. What have I won, SID? The booby prize?


SID's the lucky wiener of IVF’s “Emergency Wedding” quiz.


Kaz confesses, “This week I slept with my ex husband.”


Welcum to Knudsenville.


For such a big poof, Frobi seems to be obsessed with vag, don’t you agree?


Betty reports on the pob: the hairstyle that’s sweeping the nation.

"It looks as though a little hobgoblin gardener with a little hobgoblin gardener's lawnmower has run amuck in their hair overnight while they were sleeping."

And Kaz admits to having been talked into a pob by a poncy hairdresser.

Has anyone else here sported a pob? (Probably IVF.)


There’s a new barmaid at Mutley’s local.

Is that zippered area a tip jar?


The Smunts have got themselves into a spot of bother on what was supposed to be a lovely family holiday in Cyprus.

Carly was detained by Cypriot Immigration for smuggling sausages into the country.

Says Steve, “I don’t know what got into her head, but she told the magistrate that she had a medical condition that required her to eat high fat content foods and that there was nothing suitable to be found on the island of Cyprus.”

Pray for their salvation.


Eddie, a British ex-pat in Los Angeles, misses “his people,” i.e. “Brits, Northerners, normal folk.”

Brits are normal folk?


And finally…


Infomaniac welcomes MYTOES!

MYTOES is an American guy with a blog called I Paint My Toes and another blog called Cancer Survivor.

His words say it best…

Why would a guy like me paint my toenails? I have been married for 26 years to a great lady. In 2004 she developed breast cancer. She went through a lot of treatment like chemo and radiation. She is now doing fine but cancer is a scarey word. It doesn't mean a death sentence but it's always on her mind. Where will it attack next! I remained positive and together we fought this demon. I love to see her smile and laugh. She had beautiful long hair and she knew it was a matter of time before it all fell out. At first when it came out she cut it real short. Then I buzzed the rest so she would not face hair on the pillow. I did not buzz my hair to be in bald support but I wanted to make her smile . I painted my toes pink, the color for breast cancer survivors. I took a picture and put it as her background on her computer. When she saw that she laughed out loud. I continued to support her with all colors, mostly pink. This also reminded me of what she was going through having people look at her shaved head. I wore the toe color in public and got various reactions. I still paint my toes as a reminder and to tell the story.


To give MYTOES a proper welcome here on Infomaniac, I want all you male bitches to paint your toenails and email the pics to me. I’ll post the photos of your pretty piggies.

Go on. You bared your arses. Now bare your tootsies.

Okay, that’s the end of this week’s Blogging Roundup. Now take off, eh?

Sunday, May 20, 2007

Infomaniac Update

1) Blogging Roundup will appear on Monday but it will be a “Reader’s Digest Condensed” version of your usual Roundup as I can’t get ‘round to everyone this week. So don’t feel neglected if you’re not featured.

2) Look for “The Definitive History of The Freakin’ Green Elf Shorts” on Tuesday. I’ll leave that post up for at least a few days so you can read and appreciate the many fabulous Elf Shorts winners who’ve preceded me. And soon to come … "The Freakin’ Green Elf Shorts Caption Competition!" You could be the winner!

3) The results of the FA Cup Final. Discuss.

Ta for now. See you tomorrow.

Kisses and a kick up the arse.


Happy Birthday, Awaiting!

Our little Awa turns 29 years old today.

Remember this childhood pic of her?…

(even funnier if you click to enlarge it)

That funny-faced little gal grew up into this lovely creature…

And now, through the miracle of modern technology we can forecast what Awa will look like in the distant future…

Go over to Awaiting’s blog and give her some love, won’t you?
