Where Is My Gnome
gnomeBill has lost his garden gnome. Someone stole it from his lawn. Now he's hoping that you can help him find it. There's even a 1-800 number you can call if you have any info, but Dani, who told me about the site, reports that if you call the number "a nervous sounding man asks you to leave a message if you have information about his gnome, then before the beep, he says 'Mom, if this is you, hang up now.'"

I actually had my picture taken with a garden gnome at Burning Man this year. I was Carmen Miranda in disguise. A gal was having his picture taken with various people and said he is traveling the world with her.

Maybe this is the stolen one.
