Gnome matter what you say, there's always something left to be said. It makes me gnome thinking about it.

Reminds me of some classic poems:

Genomes to the left
Genomes to the right
Into the valley of death.......

Strange things are done in the land of the midnight sun
By the men who moil for gold
But the strangest sight I ever did see
Was that night on the marge of Lake lebarge when they cremated Sam Genome.

my name is Ossimagenome
look upon ye mighty in despair

Out...Out dam genome

Gnome away from gnome, or at least when the police are done with them.

I'd love to adopt one, three, all of them.:)

Perfect! Why doesn't the Springfield PD auction them of as part of an adoption fund raiser and donate the money somewhere?
