The gnomes are so heroic, courageously battling to preserve their culture and way of life. The IKEA couple are so fucking smug.

I'm going to fill my garden with gnomes.

They are, aren't they? Smug gits.

Gnomes are becoming an endangered species now.

'Tis very sad.

My first thought when I saw the ad was "must buy a gnome"

Gnome lovers can visit The Gnome Reserve It says "Gnome hats are loaned free of charge together with fishing rods, so you don't embarrass the gnomes!"

There's a giant one in Asda, £20 I think.
It's bigger than my DS and he always laughs when he sees it.

I thought they were a metaphor for zombies grin

I'd buy a zombie gnome.

Lj8893 Fri 26-Apr-13 20:58:35

I love that advert and am certainly going to get myself a garden gnome (not a massive one though haha)

Maisiemoo13 Fri 26-Apr-13 21:07:12

I thought I was the only one! I can't help but stop what I'm doing when I hear the music , must start a gnome collection smile

I fucking love gnomes - I had one that mooned that I got in aSecret Santa and I used to point it passive aggressively at the neighbours I didn't like

I've an allotment now, I'm starting a gnome sanctuary

The part where one gnome holds half of his fallen brother in each hand and screams soundlessly at them gets me every time. I yearn to dash in with a good ceramic glue and perform adhesive surgery.

MIL lives near a school and has a beautiful front garden. Bedding plants and hanging baskets (--usually get nicked--). She started putting a few gnomes out to amuse the children.

Then they started giving her their toys to put in the garden...........

There are gnomes, Bart, Minnie, Winnie the pooh etc.

Till the yobs trash again sad
