Stop oppressive gardening! Free the gnomes!
Okay, I know it’s silly, but I really get a kick out of garden gnome pranks. You know, when people kidnap the little guys and take them on a trip? Or leave a number of them arranged in a forest somewhere? Or under water?
Now I’m not the least bit fond of people putting these things in their yards. I think it’s tacky and low-class. But the stories of gnome mischief somehow make it a little better for me.
I do realize that some people would consider “gnome liberation” to be theft, but then I don’t really understand how anyone can be so attached to a damn lawn ornament that they would actually get upset over something like this.
Almost makes me want a roaming gnome of my own… Almost.
