25 Million Gnomes And Counting

For light Saturday morning reading, you might want to venture into The Secret History of the Garden Gnome, part of Der Spiegel's Germany Survival Bible.

You'll learn how gnomes are targets of snotty elitists and slutty pornographers alike. You'll find out that they hail from the small town of Graefenroda in the German state of Thuringia, and you'll be amazed to add this to your cranium:
Gnome theft, too, is spreading in leaps and bounds. Berlin's "Dwarf Mother" recently lamented the theft of 50 of her gnomes. It's possible they were taken to France, where the Garden Gnome Liberation Front abducts supposedly enslaved gnomes and releases them back into their natural habitat.
Frogs and gnomes ... always a bad combination. Happy reading!
