To be fair, those dimples are criminally cute :stuck_out_tongue:

Finally, our long international nightmare is over.

I…don’t understand. Was the gnome stolen?
Is it illegal to carry a gnome there?
Walk by the side of a highway? Both?


#6

First they came for the gnomes, and I did not speak out…


#7

Eminent domain leaves gentleman gnomeless.


#8

The M60 is a motorway - sort of like a US Interstate, I suppose - and yeah, it’s illegal to walk along them unless it’s an emergency.


#9

I’m disappointed to learn that “carrying a gnome” is not a euphemism I haven’t heard of. However I now consider it my mission to make it one.


#10

So how do you gnome if it was an emergency or not?


#11

Gnome way of gnoming for sure.

I can’t carry on like this. I’m going gnome.


#12

I hear the food on motorways is the worst in the world too.


#13

Quite likely, actually.


#14

YES! It’s been ages since we’ve heard from the GGFDL. Why now? Maybe they’ve been plotting for one last stand?


#15

You’re only allowed to transport them by Underground.
They’re metro-gnomes.


#16

Are you sure it wasn’t a motor-gnome?

This is a clear example of elfin safety overreach.


#17

my first thoughts exactly. Beat me to it.


#18

Indeed. Odd that the police would bother with this while there are so many other matters vying for their attention that positively dwarf this one.


#19

Exactly. Gnome harm gnome foul.


#20

That’s an obvious terrorist weapon of mass gnomification.
