I think this is the first un-funny one I've read so far. The only decent part was the cookie thing.

I look forward to this every Tuesday night =(

Hahahahhahahahahha! (cough! Cough! Hack! wheeze!) I don't know which was funnier, the Harry Potter references or the fact that Ernie the Elf was there. I guess I have to say Ernie the Elf, Harry Potter is a predicable target, but you rarely ever see a good Keebler Elves joke!

Thus was the birth of fudgems lol. Thank you kind elves for bestowing upon us your knowledge of moist delicious cookies hehe. Now if this is like Harry Potter and Nina is the female lead does that mean Lindsey Lohan will guest star as her or do her voice? Laughing

I wonder how it feels to be an elf sent to work in a sweatshop on the north pole. Sad

I cracked up completely on the Ernie bit. I don't know what is funnier with that, the fact that he looks completely deranged or that his reaction to getting cookies is so enthusiastic but only in his head. (Kind of curious about Mika the Elf though. Dinosaurs and Paleontology seems like an odd thing for an elf.) Can we see some more Nina's classmates over time? Please?

The Harry Potter thing is funny but oddly this reminds me a little more of the way Negima! started with the assignment of a mission of sorts.

Nina looks so cute back in your younger days dressed in casual T-shirt and pants. Pretty non-traditional elf garb for a very unconventional elf.

It is funny that it's Paola who believe in Harry Potter and Kevin's the one trying to tell her it's not real. (The thought of the otaku Kevin being less obsessed than her is quite funny.)

Nina in pants? Must be a cold climate.

Anyway, speaking of Nina's origins, I want to know about her family, and also about the other elves.

This is what I wrote in last week's Anime News Nina:

I stumbled across this image on ANN, called 404-Jadress.



Is this Nina's sister? Mother? Cousin? God forbid, her daughter? Kevin and Nina together?

And here I thought Nina was unique. Shows how much I know about elves. ANN probably has an online storeroom just crammed full of them, to be released when needed.


Now that I know that there is a school, some of it makes sense. But still, could you give the curious poster an answer? Thankyou.

"Do you humans 'muggles'?"

"No we call them 'humans'"


Priceless!

Bravo! Another good one, Robin!

I loved the Keebler elf joke the best. The backstory however...could of been....something else?

I think I'll stick to my Parn plugged Deedlit story!
