a very bad gnome boy


thought gnomes were cute and innocent. read about this one's role in criminal activity. it seems you can't trust anyone these days, even the cute little statues in your neighbor's garden.

geesh. That's horrid, yet humorous. I mean the way they worded the whole story is just too funny.

i love that you used the word "horrid."

That's the first time I've ever heard of a gnome being called a "deadly weapon." I thought they were cute little lawn ornaments that traveled all over the world and sent back silly post cards! I guess you never know about those gnomes.

This article made me laugh hysterically! my favorite was when the reporter described what the gnome looked like and how it sat, staring at the defendant!!! haha!!!

Poor gnomes get caught up with the wrong crowd. Our gnome, Patrick David O'Maley, has it easy!

yeah, when i heard this story, i imagined patrick reading the trib and shaking his head saying something like, "you give gnomes a bad name."

(well, actually, in my imagination he was singing it to the tune of a famous bon jovi song, but that is probably pretty unlikely.)
