Flog It Blog It, Pay up or the gnome gets it!
Mrs Dearing, 49, of Swindon, said she was ‘shocked’ by the threats. ‘I just want him back and I don’t know what to do. He is a part of my garden. It just doesn’t look the same with him gone. I don’t understand why anyone would take Norman. He was just standing by himself on a piece of grass by the living room window. There’s no way that I’m paying the ransom. They’ve also asked for the money in my hanging baskets in 1,000 pennies. If I put 1,000 pennies in them the basket would fall down, it would be too heavy for them.’
Watch out for the latest in this enthralling story! What will happen next? Will the Norman get the chop? Will he be returned unharmed to his loving owner?
Sherlock Holmes has told my reporter at Molly Media that he bets that finger prints are on the ransom demand. Call in Scotland Yard, MI5 and most certainly the SAS who should be hiding in the bushes waiting for the Gnomenappers. You'll need a police helicopter circling above and we need to hire a couple of profilers. I am sure with enough resources the Gnomenappers will be caught or next time it could be your garden ornament that gets it! Where will it end? I swear it wasn’t me! Do you have any neighbours with such garden ornamentation?
