Oh cool! A convention!!! I gotta get there!!! Wonder if BettyGnome will buy the logic that I gotta do a business trip to France...that I am thinking of doing an international version of Killdeer called MortCheri and have to do research in Paris? Shhhh. If she finds out it is a convention, she'll just assume I wanna go party in the hotel with the little gnomie hookers!!!
Ah well, to be surrounded by so many of my kind...blissful dont you think?
: Much as it pains, I say PAINS, Doc M to say anything nice
: about the little pointy-headed Gnomie, the Killdeer is
: a museum-quality work of art, and I gnash my teeth in
: envy of that kind of talent. And in recognition of the
: Short Gnomabine, I offer the following article from
: Newsweek, April 17th:
: The Paris Gnomes: No Accounting For Taste
: Americans interested in lawn decor may want to check out
: an exhibit in Paris featuring Europe's answer to the
: pink plastic flamingo. About 2,000 garden gnomes are
: on display at the Bagatelle Park in the Bois de
: Boulogne. Proving there's no accounting for taste,
: more than half a million of the gnarly little statues
: are made in Europe each year. Germans adore them; the
: French find them funny -- but fashionable. "It's chic
: to be kitschy," says the director of the exhibit. The
: show runs until July 24. Like everyone else in Paris,
: the gnomes will take August off.
