Paying for television is for schmucks. And we gnomes are NOT schmucks.
While doing a lil’ flip-a-roo on the ole’ telly last night, I could hardly believe what appeared before my eyes. I caught the tail-end of a mini-segment about a garden gnome clinic for injured gnomes in Germany.
And then with the blink of an eye, it was over! Drat! Double drat!
But like the skillful lil’ researchers we are, we tracked down this magical mini-segment and stalked it like a Dateline NBC special on Friday night.
(You know, the ones that make you feel less like a loser when you’re cradling your bottle of $2.89 Aldi wine on the couch. Because at least you weren’t kidnapped, right? RIGHT?!)
NBC is free too!
Ok but back to the gnome show…
The station is called DW and the show is called Germany Today. The blip about the gnome doctor is only about 3 1/2 minutes long, but it is truly wonderful. Some of us need to schedule an appointment with this gnome doctor and others of us are crafty enough to steal this idea and become gnome doctors ourselves!
Oh wait, that’s what I’m supposed to be doing, isn’t it? Dr. A. Chu, MD at your service!
Well if you didn’t already click on the video link at the top of this rambling post, click on this link and learn about this delightful German woman.
The Garden Gnome Clinic – Germany Today
My favorite part is when they take the biggun’s out for a ride in the car and strap on their seat belts. Safety first, gnomies! Otherwise, to the gnome doc you go!
