: I thought you might be interested in this little article that appeared in today's Daily Telegraph:
: No Show for Garden Gnomes
: The Royal Horticultural Society has banned garden
: gnomes from this month's flower show at Tatton Park,
: Cheshire, on the grounds that they are "too tacky".
: The 500 exhibitors have been warned that any
: gnomes smuggled in will be confiscated. Ann Aitkin, of
: the Gnome Reserve and Wildlife Garde, Devon,
: said: "There is room in everyone's garden for a gnome."
: Is Doc Mary a member of the Royal Horticultural Society, one wonders??
Hey! Can't we have them up for discrimination against gnomes?!! Isn't that in breech of everything we, a supposedly democratic society, stand for?!!!
On behalf of our favourite little gnome, I vote that we picket the Royal Horticultural Society and Tatton Park Garden Show!! We'll teach THEM to declare our little friend, Gnomedome, 'personna non grata'!!!
In a right ol' 'high dudgeon'!!
