help him find his gnome

I was reading the Chicago Tribune on the train home tonight, and noticed three ads for a guy who lost his garden gnome back in december. He has a website: www.whereismygnome.com

It is a cute site. The person also has a printable telephone poll ad:

If you see it, contact him!

omg i cannot escape this damn gnome.

my co-worker brought in those ads and we spent about an hour looking up random gnome stuff online. it was quite amusing.

then i got home and my mom had sent me the ads in the mail.

i must look like a gnome-person.

FREE THE GNOMES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Seems like an obvious rip off of "Amelie" to me.

Er...Amelie was filmed/released in 2001. Gnomes have been kidnapped and taken on various travels for as long as they have been kitsch.

Sounds fair. I wasn't aware of that.
