Monday Morning Mirth

In what appears to be the continuance of their whimsical ad campaigns, the Burberry Store on Michigan Ave. is showing a huge collection of foot high figurines mixed with fashion.

Yes, my friends, mixed in with the skinny mannies, are these precious little men.

did you know, “most Gnomes are 7 times
stronger than a man & can run
at speeds of 35 miles per hour”?
Hey, that’s faster than the #66!

Burberry is celebrating the 100th Anniversary in Britain of the GARDEN GNOME!

a little gnome with cool bucket!

And that’s Good Gnews! Little people and animals have decorated the gardens of millions of happy people since time began!

How do I know they’re happy? You just can’t garden and be sad!

hey, scary gnome, quit lookin’ at me
I’ll get back to work when I feel like it!

the History of the Gnome

don’t argue, you need a Fairy Mushroom
