Dude Carrying Garden Gnome Terrorizes England

By Robert Paul Reyes

"A man in England sparked a number of police calls after drivers confused a gnome that he was carrying along a local roadway for a child.

The man was spotted walking down M60 carrying the garden decoration and was eventually arrested according to a series of Tweets by North West motorways police.

`Earlier today we had a lady taking her dog for a walk on the M60 now we have a man carrying a gnome, they wrote on Tuesday night after receiving several calls.

About a half an hour later police confronted the man and said he had been arrested."


Garden gnomes give me the heebie-jeebies, if I saw a man walking down a road carrying a gnome I would be tempted to run him over.

I don`t know how anyone could mistake a gnome for a child, what the hell are they smoking in England?

The police confronted and arrested the man, not because he was carrying a gnome (although that`s a good reason to arrest someone), but due to the fact that he was uncooperative and acting strangely.

I love England, but I would think twice about vacationing there for fear I might meet a gnome-carrying Brit.
