Cementing a place in history

So these lovely folks from Reiman Gardens at Iowa State University decided to create the world’s largest gnome statue. No offense, but it’s hardly inconspicuous. Unfortunately if they had checked with me first, I could have told them they needed a few extra feet to top its Polish cousin. At 3,500 pounds, the Iowa gnome is certainly the fattest (concrete) gnome around and I doubt anyone will be walking away with it anytime soon.

For those of you who love contests (and you know who you are) you can gname the gnome. Send in your entries by the 19th of April!

I’m just glad I don’t need a crane to lower my hat into place on a daily basis.
