Wikipedia has a brief blurb about the Garden Gnome Liberation Front
. This is a political movement dedicated to liberating gnomes from the gardens in which they are imprisoned. Members of the liberation front remove gnomes from gardens and either take them out to the woods to set them loose, or smash them to set their spirit free (personally I think taking them out to the woods sounds like the more humane option). I wonder if they've ever considered taking them to the underwater gnome garden
. Anyway, this is an international movement. The American group calls itself Free The Gnomes
. The Italian group calls itself MALAG
, or the Independent Movement for the Liberation of the Garden Gnomes. One of those days I'm probably going to have to create a new category for gnomes.
