British Politicians Appealing as Garden Gnomes

British politicians are winning new constituencies in their country's gardens, according to Reuters. The country's political leaders have been transformed into garden gnomes. A digital television gardening channel, UKTV Style Gardens, has created 10 sets of the knee-high figurines portraying prominent politicos as garden sentinels to be won in an online competition.
Less than two weeks before an election, Prime Minister Tony Blair, Conservative leader Michael Howard and Liberal Democrat leader Charles Kennedy have all been cast as knee-high plaster characters. The trio are decked-out in their political party colours acting out their policies... "The exquisite Tony Blair model is digging around for non-existent weapons of mass destruction," a statement said.

"For those with an influx of snails and other garden beasties there is the scary Michael Howard gnome holding a "Keep Out" sign and for the more relaxed, there's a charming carrot-topped fellow sitting on a fence supping from a glass of ginger beer."
There is no truth to the rumor that tiny Blair, Howard and Kennedy gnomes have fallen to the Gnome Liberation Front (GLF) or the more-militant French sect, the FLNJ. Authorities are certain the North American GLF could not be involved, because the group has been driven undercover by the Patriot Act.

Travelocity's Roaming Gnome, himself a recent victim of gnome-napping, could not be reached for comment.

Too funny for words. I've sent a pointer on to a gnome obsessed friend. He (gasp) makes his own gnomes.
