7 Funny Garden Gnomes Guaranteed to Make You Laugh
Originating in Germany some 200+ years ago, the ceramic gnome has earned its status as the most popular garden decoration through the decades. Can’t keep a good gnome down! These bearded garden dwellers come in a variety of dispositions, but our personal favorites are the gnomes that make us laugh.
Here are 7 funny garden gnomes sure to inspire laughter:
1. Zombie Gnome
In case you’ve been living under a rock and aren’t aware, zombies are all the rage. This guy was a jolly little gnome before he possibly munched on some rogue mushrooms (not the good kind), or perhaps came into contact with toxic canker ooze or maybe was just bitten by another rabid gnome. Whatever the case, Zombie Gnome is funny and more relevant than ever, especially for gardeners who are “Walking (or Crawling) Dead” fans.
2. It’s 5 o’Clock Somewhere Gnome
This is the gnome who lobbied for casual Friday, whose favorite movie is “Cocktail,” and who dreams of sunshine and fruity drinks despite being bound as a woodland creature. He’s a great reminder to “chillax” and makes for an amusing contrast amongst his more regal gnome counterparts. Cheers to the It’s 5 o’Clock Somewhere Gnome!
3. Moonin’ Gnome
This cheeky gnome is named Franky and he can’t seem to keep his pants on. Don’t be offended, he’s just a free spirit and enjoys a cool breeze. Sure to be a conversation starter, this little guy might just be the fannytastic addition that your garden needs. In addition to being cute, this Moonin’ Gnome can also be a not-so-subtle message sender to your least favorite neighbor – just point him in the right direction!
4. Squirrel Gnome
Okay so this is a squirrel – not a gnome – but don’t let Finkledus hear you say that! Born with little interest in nuts or erratic movement, Finkledus always dreamt of a more fulfilling existence and takes his gnome-dom very seriously. It’s a squirrel, dressed up as a gnome, and it’s hilarious. And if that isn’t already enough reason to love him, Squirrel Gnome promises to be the one squirrel in your life who won’t raid your bird feeders – bonus!
5. Game of Gnomes Gnome
If you’re a “Game of Thrones” fan, this gnome is a must-have. Menacing, yet comical, he’s sure to watch over your garden kingdom, keeping it safe from pillagers, plunderers, and other assorted mischief makers. Garnering rave reviews from previous purchasers, the only drawback to this trendy Game of Gnomes Gnome seems to be the fact that he is a favorite target of gnome thieves, so make sure to fortify his castle.
6. Biker Gnome
When you’re not in the garden, do you find yourself cruising the open road on your bike? If so, you’ll want to add this rough and tumble guy to your gnome collection. And better yet, if your significant other is the biker, show your appreciation for his
love of tolerance for your passion for all things garden by giving this Biker Gnome his own little path.
7. Beer Garden Gnome
There are all types of gardens – flower gardens, vegetable gardens, container gardens – but this hoppy gnome will not let us forget the most intoxicating garden of them all! A perfect host for outdoor entertaining, the versatile Beer Garden Gnome will also look right at home strategically placed in a houseplant, pointing the way to the tap.
