An erkling is an angry elf who eats children. The word "erkling" was also one of Straight Face's vocabulary words a few weeks ago. I don't know what kind of school she is attending, but the teacher who assigned out the word "erkling" gets two thumbs up from me.
You may be an erkling if you are very short, warty and have an undeniable craving for children. Or, you may be a serial killer and a cannibal, and if that's the case, thank you for reading, and please move along. We don't need your brand of crazy here.
