Title: We lost an important man yesterday........
Post by: DutchMF on December 06, 2013, 02:09:01 PM
His name was Kabouter Prikprak (don't ask, it's dutch):

We had a big storm yesterday, with winds well over 100 km/h. Our faithful garden gnome was knocked over and, as you can see, suffered some major, fatal brain damage. Since we don't have a garden (2 stories up), he's been sitting on his mushroom on our balcony for over 5 years, never complaining about the lack of a fishing rod or a wheelbarrow. He was one of the few things our cat never attacked, and will be sorely missed.

Now, you didn't see that one coming, did ya?  ;)

Try not to judge too harshly.  People can't help it.  Gnome is where the heart is.

So true. Sometimes we cannot help but think of our elf above all others.

True I think, although  I am not as familiar with the Keebler.  It's not a name I come across in the standard gnomenclature.

Let's not argue over semantics, the fact is he died and no one cared! Ahahahahaha I saw it the other day in a news feed. When I saw it I said, I thought he was already dead. Yup!

Apparently he died last year as well.

No, he didn't actually die then.  The Professor revived him using a defibrillator built from two coconut halves.

You know, every time someone important dies, we troll out a lot of fake pleasantries about the person even if we did not gnome them. It's a fairy common thing. I'm Froud to say I don't take part in that.

Church. We must move on from this tragedy. But, as a wise man once said, "Gnomatter where you go...there you are."

Remember all his adventures?

I agree.  Sometimes you just have to get out and walk the earth.  There are many benefits to a gnomadic lifestyle.  It's usually the path to elf-actualization.
