Gnome nickers

You are at the hairdressers and you listen in to a neighbouring conversation it's about crime.

The conversation was between of the hairdressers (obviously) and a gentleman slightly lacking in hair on the top of his head.

Man" ooh the state of crime around my area is terrible !"

Hairdresser  nodding " yes , yes shocking "

Man " Yes they jump over my fence , and nick Gnomes, they are Gnome nickers "


I find the mental image of this very amusing as I have visions of burglars hurdling over white picket fences holding the poor gnome as they go. Perhaps it could be a new Olympic sport with the irate Gnome owners chasing the burglars.

And then I found this ... Are toddlers who played in their Grandparents gardens reacting to earlier memories of all those Gnomes watching them. is society to blame for the spate of "Gnome nickers' ?


My son as a toddler playing with Gnomes.

  5. haha We shouldn't laugh at this poor chap's loss but it is quite funny when gnomes go missing! Do you remember that Coronation Street storyline from years and years ago when David Platt I think, nicked the gnomes from next door and sent postcards to the owners of the gnomes on their travels? I think it was Derek and Mavis who were the gnome owners!!!
