    SYDNEY - It’s being called the “Gnomesville Massacre” and emergency workers in Western Australia are offering a reward for the capture of vandals who smashed their way through a local tourist attraction.

    An unknown number of attackers lopped off the heads or smashed several dozen of the pot-bellied statues this week at Gnomesville, a collection of more than a 1,000 colorful characters deep in a forest south of Perth.

    “We are incensed by the damage done to the gnomes and willing to pay a reward to catch the culprits,” State Emergency Service Volunteer Association President Phillip Petersen told Reuters.

    Six orange-colored gnomes depicting emergency workers were among those destroyed, Petersen said, adding the reward was A$500 ($390).

    The population of Gnomesville has grown from a handful of statues placed covertly in the forest a few years ago, making it a popular stop off for tour buses visiting nearby vineyards.

    between you
    and all the money in the world.

    And no you can't have any.

    It wasn't vandalism, it was murder suicide. They were despondent that they didn't get the contract with Travelocity.
