Over the weekend, the St. Cloud Times recently reported that Albany High School hosted a Knowledge Bowl. Kinda lame, right?
You know why? Because garden gnomes were awarded to the winners as trophies!
The article reported that “Members of 62 teams from around Central Minnesota competed, first in a 60-question written round, followed by four 45-question oral rounds, where three teams per room competed against each other to answer questions covering a variety of academic subjects. Teams were playing for the coveted Gnome Awards, trophies shaped like garden gnomes.”
Gnome awards? I’d like to know exactly how many questions those bratty kids answered correctly that had anything to do with gnomes. Anything, whatsoever! I bet my bum that all of the questions were related to pop culture or mathematics or literature.
WE ARE NOT TROPHIES! WE ARE LIVING, BREATHING SOULS WORTHY OF LOVE AND ADMIRATION!
Shame on you. Shame, shame on you.
