Anyone who has the last name “Gnome” is A-OK in my book.
I randomly encountered someone who can only be described as my dream girl. Her name is Shirley Gnome and she’s completely and wonderfully inappropriate.
To get what I’m talking about, watch her music video for “Old Man.”
Shirley Gnome is a “self-styled white trash burlesque and comedy performer. Singing her special brand of dirty, crass, and absurd ‘cuntry’ music, Shirley belts out original tunes about the embarrassing, hilarious, and titillating adventures that happen when bodies collide.”
I have yet to hear her sing much about real gnomes, but honestly, I’m a little nervous about what she’d sing anyway.
She’s become pretty popular around Vancouver and scored $20 grand for winning the People Champ of Comedy Competition in 2012 Grand Prize Winner. She’s also been nominated for a 2014 Canadian Comedy Award for Best Variety Act. Right on, m’lady!
“If you fancy a wild evening of sexually fueled country rock, then get yourself along to see Shirley Gnome,” proclaimed an Edinburgh Fringe review.
Anyway, I love discovering gnome musicians of all sorts and thought I’d enlighten you about my new obsession today.
