: 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?
: Gnome Dome
Little gnome hookers?? Would you pay them in...SMALL CHANGE???
BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!! Oh, lord...think the dots on MY dominoes
are going as well!!
: : 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.
