Cryptid Alert! Gnome!
The pointy hat is what makes it extra scary! Here’s a gnome who’s either crapped his pants or is just walking sideways to make himself more terrifying. Where do gnomes get their clothes anyway? Maybe there’s a store off in the woods where they can trade kidnapped babies for pointy hats… or maybe they make them with magic.
Don’t get me wrong, I’d scream, too, if I saw a gnome. Of course, I scream if somebody touches my arm or walks into my office, like I’m constantly in the process of convincing myself I’m the only person left in the world and I’m all alone... then, fuck. A gnome. Yeah, I’d scream.
