Ikea Garden Gnome

I heard this on the radio this morning as I was driving into work and I just had to track down the picture.

Now I can definitely understand some of the jokes that Carter, Sandra, The Boyle and Jenny from the Block were making. I wonder if Ikea really thought this one through when they created such a phallic looking garden gnome.

The story was that a number of people in parts of Ottawa woke up to find these gnomes on their lawns. It seems that someone from Ikea dropped them off over night as part of an advertising campaign.

Turns out this isn’t the first appearance of the Ikea Garden Gnome. I did a quick search and found these pictures on someone’s Flickr page. The pictures are from last spring. Their comment is that the gnomes were on the clearance sale rack.

Anyways, it was good for a laugh this morning and I can definitely agree with what everyone was saying on 105.3 Kiss FM.
