Henri, Gnomic Olympic Champion

Not many people are aware that the Gnomic Gnation was well-represented at the 1912 Olympiad.  However, after much thought about safety concerns the Olympic Committee instituted a new height requirement in 1916.  And gnomes were no longer admitted to compete.

Undaunted, the Gnomic Nations called a meeting of the International Magickal Peoples Association and they formed their own Olympic Games.

Another little-known fact is that Henri and a few of his friends developed the sport of snowboarding long before it became popular in the human Olympics.  Henri was so proficient in this sport he was nicknamed “The Flying Potato”.

  1. Just the tickle tonic I needed after a tedious week at work. Henri le pomme de terre volant!
    Such is the power of the gnomic hats they defied the monochrome photography conventions of the day! I love it!

  2. I haven’t told a lot of people, but I’ve been training for the Obsese Olympics for several years. I plan to compete in both summer and winter games. My specialty is the low-board belly flop in the summer and luge in winter. Once headed downhill, I go really fast!
