Those I like. But I don’t know the name in English, some would probably say gobbling, but that’s wrong. This little creature lives underground in great numbers. It is believed in Swedish folklore, before you throw out water, especially hot water, you have to shout a warning so they don’t get wet. If they do, they get very angry and make your dog limp or kill your cow.

In Finnish vätte is maahinen, but I don’t think they have a proper name in English. They’re just called gnomes, but that’s not quite accurate. Oh well, I like the pic anyways 2
