I received this email today and I immediately started cackling when I got to this photo. Naturally, I had to show it to Geoff. Also naturally, it was already sold out by the time I clicked through and got to Etsy. These people are Evil Geniuses.
Pure Evil Genius I tell you. This is the description from the seller’s page on Etsy.
Something bad has happened in the garden. The once happy garden gnomes have been infected by a strange virus which has turned them into flesh eating monsters. There are only a few survivors left who are desperately trying to stay alive.
This is a sorry sight indeed. A poor helpless Lawn Flamingo has been taken down by zombie gnomes: Nose-less Ned, Greedy Gary, and Bartolomeu. It seems like an unlikely kill until Bartolomeu broke the elegant beasts [sic] leg and brought it crashing to the ground. Where they pounced upon their helpless victim and began their feast. So we say “Bye Bye Birdie, I’m going to miss you so, Bye Bye Birdie, Why’d you have to go?”
All of these Gnomes are hand painted and hand casted [sic]. We have been getting so many orders so please give us about 3-4 weeks for us to mail them out to you.
Weight: 3 pounds

Don’t worry there are more coming 🙂
Here are the survivors. Apparently they’re well armed.
And, of course, what would the Zombie Apocalypse be without a sign waving crazy? Here you go.
Doomsday Day, formerly called Dandy Dan, was once a happy ‘Welcome’ Gnome, but then the Gnome world went to s*#$t and so did his attitude. But he should have known the Zombie Apocalypse would come eventually , the Aztecs predicted it long ago and God knows he’s was alive then.
I’m not entirely sure what that means, but there you go.
The seller is Chris and Jane’s Place. Check them out. Their stuff is really funny. And who knows? You can never be too prepared.
