THIS GOBLIN

And half a poster that reads

BIGFO(OTS)

Shoe Goblin: (in the exact same pose as his picture, even with the same sweat drops on his forehead) "No no, I be, uh... The Glove Elf!"
Steve HMMs...
Shoe Goblin: "Aye, I be just loving gloves"
Shoe Goblin: "Especially the, uh, fingers"

Steve: "OK, just checking! Here you go."

Steve: "Could you pass me his credit card?"
The Shoe Goblin SIGN SIGNs the form.

Beaver is about to PASS the card to Steve.

[To be contd.]

Fun Facts

  • Shoe stores don't serve the Shoe Goblin and Bigfoot.
  • The Shoe Goblin is a member of the Shoe Bank, his credit card number is 5403 5403 5403 5403 and expires in October 2007.
    • If you turn each number around 180 degrees, it would resemble "ShOE ShOE ShOE ShOE".
  • At this shoe store, you have to sign a contract to buy shoes.
    • However, the contract might only be required when purchasing extraordinarily large shoes, such as ones whose mere weight could destabilise the planet's orbit when improperly handled.
    • More likely, it's just the IOU signature required for credit card transactions by most non-online merchants.
