This is precisely what happened this weekend, when a person, decided to try and steal a garden gnome off someone's porch.

Let me paint a picture for you. A little garden gnome sitting on a porch, surrounded by some cute plants and flowers. Mr. Gnome was minding his own business, when some idiot jumps out of the car, darts across the lawn, snatches the gnome, and--BOOM!

Mr Gnome was chained to the porch....probably to deter theft. Hmph.

Chaos ensues. The failed thief loses his hat. He grabs the hat. Eh, it's a little bit like watching a panicked and wet cat scrabble away from a lost cause.

I do love to see a thief flee without any goodies in tow.

Who steals a garden gnome? And fails at it? Eh. I'm sure their mother might love them someday....but probably not today.

I'm pretty sure it's bad luck to steal a garden gnome, anyhoo.

But ah, We love to see video proof of failures like these!

Mr. Gnome: 1

Weird Little Wimpy Thief: 0

The moral of this story is, be a good person...Now, where can I find garden gnome statues in this particular size? All the ones I see are just so *smoll*.

I'll love him and name him George the Garden Gnome <3

Thrilled to Be There: the Smiling Mugshots of Hutchinson County

Hutchinson County has plenty of people who have committed a criminal blunder (or two). And just like any other bigger city, jail is no fun. However, some of the residents of Borger and Stinnett are believers in keeping their spirits high in the face of adversity.

Not sure what we mean?

Well....let's just say that Randall County's cheerful inmates aren't the only ones who seem happy to be arrested....While there’s nothing funny about committing a crime, these offenders in Hutchinson County certainly do know how to light up a pod with their smile :-)
