Gnome Attack Roundup: My Protest Has Little Effect on Gnomeo & Juliet Movie

Author:
Publish date:

25 million dollars. That's how much Gnomeo & Juliet brought in over the weekend alone. I know what you're thinking, because I'm thinking the same thing myself. I need to load my $%^&! shotgun and take a defensive position because garden gnomes are now emboldened and everyone's chance of an attack is doubled. My attempt to protest the movie was, by all means, a bust (see pic below). It just kind of freaked a few families out, so I cheered myself up with a meatball sandwich at Potbelly. (Mmmm. So good.)

Coverage & Interviews:

  • The big AM station in Cincinnati, 700 WLW, re-aired an interview with me on Friday that was originally taped five months ago. A special thanks to WLW for saving lives.
  • How to Survive a Garden Gnome Attack was one of the first books conquered by Suzi on her 2011 challenge of reading books.
  • My favorite actor has always been and will always be Michael Biehn. However, it appears I may just have a new second favorite: Colton Haynes, a younger actor with a cool name and a lot of TV credits like "The Gates," "Look," and more. Why, you ask? See his awesome tweet from last week:
