Well, dear Challenge!rs, I'm back with another tale of those adorable garden guys and gals, adored and abhored by many. So, get those pencils good and sharp and set the following to Mudcat Music. (Funny, I've had ne'ry a nightmare of knobbly gnome knockers...):

Naughty Gnomes Barred in Barnesley! -- BARNSLEY, England (Reuters) -- A British man has covered up his lewd garden gnomes with painted-on swimwear after police warned him he faced arrest for causing public offense.

While most garden gnomes fish or enact scenes of bucolic tranquility, ex-army Sgt. Tony Watson's models in the northern English town of Barnsley bared their breasts and buttocks, prompting complaints from the public.

"It is an offense to display something that is insulting or likely to cause distress," a police spokeswoman said on Wednesday. "Although some people view the gnomes as a bit of harmless fun, we have to take complaints from members of the public seriously."

One of the gnomes now sports a polka-dot bikini, said local resident John Threlkeld, who passes the gnomes every day on his way to work.

"Tony used filler and paint to cover them up," he said.


GO FOR IT, CHALLENGE!RS!!!

All the best, Áine

He wore an itsy bitsy teeny weenie
Dot to cover up his weenie
Poor little gnome
He just wanted to please

An itsy bitsy teeny weenie
Sporty polka dot bikini
But his penis
Hung down to his knees.

The Band Used To Play In the Garden


Tune: The Band Played Waltzing Matilda


Click to Play


Oh I heeded my hormones as a stony young gnome,,
And threw caution away to the duster
And I flaunted my shape, and my gnomish round stones
And had good times, I'm telling you, Buster!
I found sweet gnomesses plenty with delicate swerves
And always excited to show me some curve
And as soon as dark fell, we would work up some nerve
Playing tickle and squeak in the garden.

We weren't much for fishing, or playing at boules
Or those other ridiculous poses
You wouldn't find my kind perched up on toad stools
Or scratching their chins with their noses.
As garden gnomes go, we were not from the mold
We were lusty, and busty and foolish and bold
And we never lost interest, just because it got cold,
Sometimes being of stone's an advantage!

My crowd felt at home behind one ancient hall,
In the yard of a Sergeant named Andy
He was glad to support us, boobs, peckers and all
Said he liked art that made him feel randy!
So there we would gather, and there we would live
Just awaiting the freedom the darkness would give
Why the thought of it now makes me stand like a shiv,
Life was good in that liberal garden!

But Tony got randy once too often, it seems
And he wed, as the priests did desire
She was shapely and all, but shared none of our dreams --
She'd flesh, but she didna have fire.
And the next thing we know, she's a raising a stink!
With her voice like a starling and her face burning pink
Yelling that we should care what the neighbors all think!
Though we'd never been troubled before that.

So my sweet Greta Gravel got wrapped to her neck
In a tuutuu of fiberglass filler
And my manhood's been buried and made me a wreck
How on earth could I possibly thrill her?
And it's polka dot dresses and underwear too,
She made Tony paint us in dots white and blue
Till we felt so refined that we wanted to sue!
Oh, our lives are a proper disaster!

So now every day I stand still on the lawn
Wrapped tight in my plaster bikini.
And I stand there long after the daylight is gone
For I have no more use of my weenie!
And as for old Tony, that stupid young toff
She's gone cold on him, claiming headache or cough
When a bra's made of ice, well, you can't tear it off
Any more than you can if its plaster.

And the nighttime has lost all its magic!
And we stand there all frozen and stalled
And year after year
Our numbers are fewer --
Someday no gnome will stand here at all!

Come on, Challenge!rs -- It's the weekend, so you don't have any excuse not to scribble down a ditty or two about these gnomes and their new knickers!!

Lock yourself in the porcelain library, find a friend to collaborate with, or kick back with a nice glass of Shiraz, then close your eyes and IMAGINE . . . You can do it, I know you can!!

Remember, any genre will do -- folk, country, blues, and if you feel the thumping of those bass guitars in you - start rockin' and rollin'!!

GO FOR IT, CHALLENGE!RS!!!

I better go tell my boss!

IN BARNESLY A GNOME
(To the tune of 'Quare Bungle Rye')

In Barnesly a gnome, he went out on the town
He stopped in a garden and pulled his pants down
Bent over and mooned all the folk passing by
And happened to catch a cute gnomette's bright eye

Fal-de de rol, such a cute gnomette's eye!

She stepped in the garden and pulled off her top
Saying - 'What a good deal - I was growing hot'
Proudly she flashed him an eyefull and then
Presented her pair to the lane once again

Fal-de de rol, to the lane once again!


Complaints they were filed, complaints pointed blame
for lewdness and grossness, disgust and for shame
In Barnesly such sights should not ever be seen
And Especially not in a garden so green!

Fal-de de rol, inn a garden so green!

Have to be careful here, I have friends in Barnsley!

Well the first time I seen Tony Watson,
It was in the month of June
He said 'I want a gnome with his trousers down
Doing a reg'lar moon
I'm looking for a gnome, just looking for a gnome'

Well I said to him 'Tony,
Why'd you want a gnome like that?'
Said 'To let my neighbour know
What I think of her old tom cat
I'm looking for a gnome, just looking for a gnome'

Well we went to the garden centre
And found to our surprise,
There were gnomes with dongs like old King Kong
And lustful staring eyes
When you're looking for a gnome, just looking for a gnome.

Well I said 'Look here Tony,
Be careful what you do,
Or else you'll find the thought police
Will be coming after you
If you put out any gnomes, if you put out any gnomes!'

Well only a fortnight later
The cops came round to call,
Said Displaying indecent gnomes
Just will not do at all,
So cover up your Gnomes, Just cover up your gnomes.

Well the moral of this story,
Is very true but sad,
Whatever you do for a bit of fun
Someone else can see as bad,
Even in a gnome, Especially in a gnome!

Dear Aine, how wonderful! This one is to the tune of "Any dream will do" from Joseph and the Amazing technicolor Dreamcoat -- which is not in the DT. That's very wise, because it's one of those tunes, like the notorious "It's a small world" which will run round and round and round in your head for weeks until you holler for mercy.

Barnsley's Moon

Our Barnsley Green, it's so bucolic,
Never melancholic, just a perfect scene.
Far, far away, folks may be sinning,
Have since the beginning,
I've been told, it's true.

But I walk my street, with the bright sun shining,
Nothing's undermining my tidy view.
All's as right as rain, till the corner's turning,
Then my cheeks start burning,
And my eyes do, too.

A shocking sight! A sybarite!
Made out of stone! A pervert gnome
Is standing there, his bottom bare
Flashing me a moon!

I closed my eyes, and I almost fainted,
To see Barsnley tainted, with such a dirty scene.
I looked once more, and I saw bare-chested
Gnomettes double-breasted --
Well I had to scream.

I called the cops, well, of course I had to,
Not that I was glad to, but what choice had I?
The world and I, we have to keep our eyes peeled,
And our moral spines steeled,
Against such clay bad guys.

The cops were fast, the crisis passed,
The stone derriere no longer bare,
The boobs were clad in bikini plaid
Painted on the stone.

Now we return To our life of virtue
All at home by curfew, and the gnomes are still.
For action hot, they still are waiting,
Primly hesitating,
And they always will.
And they always will.

Fantastic, dear Deda! I'm so glad someone stepped into the shoes of the complainant and used his/her POV. Well done, indeed -- and may I say in so 'Barnseylish' a manner, too. ;-) And for your 'primly hesitating' (yet, oddly Poe-ettic) poetical pronouncement in the following verse, you are awarded a Silver B.L.O.B.:

Now we return To our life of virtue
All at home by curfew, and the gnomes are still.

Oh, give me some gnomes, front of my Barnsley home
With their true nature all on display.
Some think it's absurd, tip the coppers the word,
They said take those offenders away!

Gnomes, gnomes, ain't it strange?
Like Greek gods, tits and butts on display.
Some silly old fart can't appreciate art,
Made me hide my gnomes' treasures away.

Another arbiter of taste, in D.C. he made haste
To conceal a fair feminine shape;
So the prim TV tube won't be shocked, said this boob,
And he hid Justice's bare breast with a drape.

Gnomes, gnomes, ain't it strange?
Bluestockings o'er you hold sway,
But you're part of the crowd of what's not allowed
By those who'd take all our freedoms away.

In London's Hyde Park, I think for a lark
Queen Boadicea should now wear a brassiere,
Lest in Buckingham Palace, some teen princeling's phallus
Should respond to the sight, they might fear.

Gnomes, gnomes, ain't it strange?
What some folks are afraid may be seen.
They've no problem with war, murder, lying and more,
But a stone gnome's rear end is obscene!

Gnome-body Woes-- A trouble obscene!
Gnome-Body Shows-- with teasers!

So we knit each a wee wee sash:
Gnomes we gird!

Gnome-body clothes--with polka-dots green!
Gnome-body clothes--two-piecers!
Gnomes would rather "begin the Beguine..."
But knickerless gnomes unease us!


Tho' Gnomes in nature unclad go,
