Nude Gnomes Too Naughty

Lewd garden gnomes have had their private parts covered with painted-on swimwear after their owner was warned by police.Tony Watson, from Barnsley in South Yorkshire, displayed his naked gnomes outside his house.But instead of standing in cute fishing poses or enacting scenes of bucolic tranquility, Mr Watson's gnomes bared their breasts and buttocks.


The models caused such outrage that police told the ex-army sergeant he faced arrest for causing public offence.


A police spokeswoman said: "It is an offence to display something that is insulting or likely to cause distress.


"Although some people view the gnomes as a bit of harmless fun, we have to take complaints from members of the public seriously."


One of the gnomes now sports a polka-dot bikini, said local resident John Threlkeld, who passes the gnomes every day on his way to work.
