I need Elf jokes!


First Post
In a new campaign that I'm playing in on Sunday's, my dwarf character is travelling w/ an uptight, elitist, pansy spellcasting elf. Because of this, I am taking it upon myself to make his life miserable. Just in case you are wondering, the player of the elf in question is also prepping his own insults, so I need some good ammo here.

Post all of your really good (or really bad) elf-depreciating jokes, puns, anecdotes, snappy comebacks, insults, etc.

As my grandad used to say,
"'Tis true: an elf's years are as long as his ears
But his heart is as small as his nose.
For a dwarf with a flagon, when confronting a dragon
Is worth more than an elf with his bow."

What did the skeleton say to the elf?
Would it kill you to put on some weight.

Why are elves so good at hiding in the forest?

The extra weight would make them unable to walk.

Because that's easier than just making dwarves tie a hand behind their back.

What do you call an elf taking the time to learn about the outside world?

Why do elves keep writing nature poetry?
Trees can't tell them it's stupid.

If elves can do anything, why don't they rule the world?
They're too arrogant to notice that they no longer do.

Why did elves master archery?
They didn't want to risk their own pretty faces getting close to their enemies, so they got some other skinny pr**ks to do it for them.

What do you call an elf with well-worn, dented battle armour?
A looter.

How can you tell you've gotten close to a mighty elven empire?
When you're in the section of the library that says "Ancient History".

"Right. I'll kill this one, Regdar, you kill that one, Krusk'll kill the other one and Nancy? Uh...why don't you stay back here so ya don't get hurt."

"Aye, Nancy, I'd introduce ye to my drinkin' mates, but I'm affraid ye'd just hit on 'em."

"The only reason dwarven women have beards is because they beat up the elf men and took it from the wee lil' crybabies."

"Hear the story about the elf maiden? Aye, she was lookin' fer a real man, and ended up marryin' a tree, fer it's the only straight thing in an elven wood."

"Wussamatter, Nancy, scared o' a little blood?"

"Jus' like an elf. All prancin', no use."

"Ah, I see, so you use magic because yer arms are too weak to hit 'em with a blade?"

I'm a fan of the flower one up above, too. Heh.

Not a joke per se, but still an argument that may be appropriate for one of these "I'm a superior race" elves:

From boards.wizards.com:

Elves, all things considered, reactionnary. They reject change, innovation, and novelty, which are seen as threats and agressions. This reject is not a carefully, all-things-put-in-the-balance, rejection -- it's irrational, gut-instinct reaction, new=bad, period.

Their reactionnary mindset shows in:

Nostalgia. It was better before. Convinced that the world goes to hell, that the old ways (who were, by definition, superior) are forgotten or perverted, and that everything now is but a shallow reflect of the glorious, obviously glorious old times; they live in the past. An idealized past. Back in the days, wondrous, awe-inspiring mythals were everywhere. The folks lived in peace and harmony, magic and culture blossomed, the world was healthier and the grass greener.

Resentment. Things now are awful, but that's the fault of these foreign devils. The races of elf, human, dwarf, gnome and hin lived in peace and were happy under the just, enlightened, benevolent and wise rulership of our admirable Coronals, until, sadly, we trusted them too much and allowed them in our country (rather than friendily shooting all tresspassers on sight). Oh, blessed Seldarine, what folly have we made ? All Hells break loose, and the traitors we called our friend destroyed everything we have achieved; jalous of our grandeur, and unable to rivalize, they preferred to undermine the wonders of elfcraft, by their mere presence. We tried to avoid the worse by massacring them all without mercy, but it was too late. May these demons be cursed !

Isolationnism. When you don't want to acknowledge the changes, and you don't think you can fight it, the only option is to flee. Flee to another, pure, world, uncontaminated by the insidious presence of those that don't think like you. The elves had Evermeet for that, and the other folk should be thankful for the existance of that island, because otherwise, the will to start anew is synonym to genocide (like Chinese Great Jump Forward or the red khmer's mass murder of 1/3 their country's population). As the old world was profaned by the foul presence of these damn subelven hords, breeding like rodents and even more destructive, we had no choice but flee to the safety of Evermeet, the promised land, the Torilian Paradise. There, in our exile, we would wait until the parasitic infestation, deprived of the Light coming from our Grandeur, kill themselves and die all to the last. Then, only then, we could go back to Faerûn and heal the poor land. Meanwhile, we would revel in our beauty and safekeep our magnificent sacred traditions, without any corrupting outsider influence.

Scapegoatism. We pose the postulate that the world is going on its doom. Why ? because it was better before, and things continue to go worse because they can't go better, since change can't be to the better, only blind and total obedience to the ancestral tradition is good, remember. We also pose the postulate that it's the bloody stranger's fault, that's obvious, they're not like us, so they're responsible for everything that goes bad (and everything goes bad because it was better before). Naturally, if the perturbative elements (non-elves) are removed, things will stop to get worse. So, killing non-elves will save the world. Eldeth Veluuthra ! Victorious blade of the People, lead us to the destruction of the Not-People devils ! From their shed foul blood, green forests will grow high and strong ! May the Seldarine bless us in this most holy quest against Evil aliens !

The elves never miss the opportunity of claiming their suporiority above everyone. They are especially contemptuous of humans, and always reminds them of things like "We were already building flying crystal castle when you were wearing crude bear skin and hid in caves, hurling feces at each others". That's because their alignment is not chaotic good, but lawful loser.

Were they not so snuck-up in their idea everything was better before, fate is unfair toward their absolute perfection, and that's all the fault of human, they would recognize the fact.

And the fact is, they're a senile race. Great irony, isn't it ? While the individual elves are ageless, their collective unconscious is senile. Their neurons have hardened and can't bend now, only shatter. Their mind is old, rusted, crippled. They claim they could build flying crystal castle before ? Well, why can't they now ? They forgot all their wonders, because they're old, aged, and dying. They have all but themselves to blame for that, their stubborn grumpiness is what accelerate their decline.

But it's so easier, when you're old, at death's door, suffering from Alzheimer memory troubles, and Parkinson muscular control troubles, to remind the young healthy adults you have seen them in diapers and wetting their bed. It's so easier to close your mind and refuse to see the real decadence than to accept to see the fact and change your ways...

Now, it's the elves who are in diapers, as their sphincter control is dead, they move in wheelchair, and spend their days in bed, watching soap-operas and insulting the nurse who comes to empty the pot.

And everyone find they are cool. They aren't. They would be if they were chaotic good as they are supposed to.

Why don't elves sleep and dream ?

Because they dream when they are awake, thinking they are great and mighty heroes. (By the way, rêverie is really only a word for daydream).

Not a joke, but a damn funny quote from 8-Bit Theater:

"Yeah, we're real scared of elves! I hope they don't prance around with honey dew and frolick amonsgt the gumdrop trees."

How many elves does it take to light a torch?

Two, one to light a torch, the other to compose an epic ballad about why the torch had to be lit, so that future generations can remember this proud day in the history of elven kind.

You know, I've never thought of having Nazi elves in a campaign. If I ever do a modern version of a fantasy setting, this could offset all the tree-huggin' hippie elves! Ooo...
