Bigger is Better…for Gnomes in Wisconsin

Perhaps your read our post about a big ass gnome Iowa. Or maybe you heard about other big ass gnomes in New York and Vancouver from us.

Well in the spirit of “bigger is better,” the great (?) state of Wisconsin jumps on the big ass gnome bandwagon with a pointy hatted fellow made of wood.


There’s a logger dude named Nick Uecker in Door County, Wisconsin who has become our new hero. This guy teamed up with a Michigan chain saw sculptor, James Denkins, with a mission of turning a 58-inch diameter log into a gnome.

This gnome is standing a whopping 21 feet and 6 inches high, which blows the American competition out of the garden. The guys just finished painting it at the end of June and it was going for a Guinness Book Record for the world’s largest wooden gnome. Unfortunately, that dumb book doesn’t distinguish between types of gnomes or gnome material.


That Vancouver Island gas station bugga made of scrap metal is 25 feet and 11 inches tall. Whomp whomp.

Regardless, I smell another road trip coming up!

Apparently, there’s gonna be a “name the gnome” contest soon. Any ideas?

About Caesar

I’m that weird guy in your office who seems to need an IV drip of coffee at all times to function at a normal gnome-like level. Everyone always thinks I must an overworked insomniac and could also really use a shower.

Then one day I try to make out with you in the supply closet. My breath reeks of Bailey’s Irish Cream Liquor! It all makes sense to you now! I’ve never been drinking coffee at all! So you let me make out with you. Eh, why not? You’e probably had worse.

I contribute occasionally in the ‘Gnome Brew Review’ Category. I’m opinionated, sneaky, and like to be handled (wink wink).
