Gnomes Town Massacre

I'm really saddened to hear that Gnomesville in Wellington Mills Western Australia was the site of a massacre last week. Nasty people ransacked the place and beheaded dozens of gnomes.

For those unfamiliar with Gnomesville, it all started when the local shire put a roundabout basically in the middle of nowhere. One day, gnomes appeared on the side representing the councilors who made the decision to spend shire money on a useless roundabout.

Different gnomes started popping up, some with themes such as "give me a gnome among the gum trees", "the human g gnome project" and my favourite, a fat gnome in green and gold called "Gnome Warne". Anyone can place a gnome there.

If you look closely, you may see "Gnome Gallop" and "Alan Carpengnome" with the slogan underneath them "Gnome more contracting out of school cleaning".... I wonder how they got there???? Hope they didn't lose their heads in the massacre.
