When you say "slight of build" do you just mean thin, or was he also short?

Could he have been a Smurf? Smile

If he was a Chelsea fan - why the glum face on such a monumental day?

If he had a mishap with a Pota-loo then rofl

How old do you think he was? Bristol is a student town so it might well be a prank, however something about him wearing those heavy duty gloves made me shudder Shocked

Heavy duty rubber gloves for cleaning out portaloos?

Maybe he was a member of the Blue Man Group, on his way to work?


Perhaps he prematurely blue himself on what was supposed to be a dry run, and was left with a bit of a mess on his hands.

Hence the gloves.

haha, to the original poster - I don't believe it, i've just posted in the fortean news section of a smurf spotted in the forest of dean! according to the article, he was orignally spotted on 20th may which would tie in with your siting.

I suspect the thread will get merged into this one.

I knew it! The Forest of Dean is not too far from Bristol either. All makes sense at last.

Anything can happen in the Forest of Dean!

If I had to guess his age I'd say early to mid twenties.

Ah, but which way does the causation go? They might have picked him for the job 'cause he was already blue! Wink

Not sure this is related, but ...

Here's a link to a 2009 story (with photo and video) of a Washington (state) man whose skin tone had become blue after years of ingesting colloidal silver.

Very easy to explain as I know a man with this condition

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Argyria

Collidial silver exposure

Basically a silver compound that is sold as a "cure all' drink in many countries. Trouble is all it does is turn you a very striking blue/grey - honest it's unreal to behold. It's completely irreversible apart from laser surgery but that would be painful and expensive..

Honest I know a guy who has this.

I used to know someone who drank the colloidal silver solution. After a while, someone noticed that he was looking a little grey, so he stopped. I think the cost was a deciding factor too. AFAIK, his skin colour is (mostly) normal now. He didn't do it long enough to turn blue.
