"Staff at Alton Towers are trying to find homes for 200 gnomes left behind by visitors. Bosses at the Staffordshire attraction offered free entry to anyone who arrived accompanied by a gnome throughout May... He said a gnome crèche had been set up for anyone in need of a bearded ornament for their garden."

Seriously, what did they think people would do? Take their gnome on the rollercoaster? Buy him some cotton candy?
Or dump the crap and have a good day out? Mr. Alton Towers boss-guy, I don't you think thought that one through, mate!

Next thing you know someone will form the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Gnomes, and Alton Towers will be charged for knowingly contributing to the abandonment of garden gnomes....I'll keep you posted.

I love this idea! It's great! Now, however needs one can just pick one up. Did you see Amelie? The Gnome had a starring role!

That is truly funny. SOMEONE will start an activist group for the protection of these fellas.

Next thing you know the gnome will rise a army and yell walking down the streets, "GNOMEMERCY!"

Remember Gnomes are friends not food.

Seriously thats some crazy stuff.

The answer is simple, now they need to offer free tickets to anyone who will come take one away. Duh!

That's hilarious!

If I had a pellet gun, I'd take a few of those gnomes.
