ConcordeBoy, I think you are referring to "David the Gnome", I remember that one as well. Anyway, the little gnome fella is great. I like myth #2: Gnomes make horrible tour guides. His response is "Oh honkery, the wheels on the bus go round and round........crash". Good stuff

I heard a story about this...I believe someone stole this gnome and traveled with it and took pictures of it where ever they were at that moment...and sent it to the owner as "clues". Did anyone hear that .... or am I just losing it?

The stealing the gnome and traveling with it is from the movie Amelie (a great movie by the way). I like the travelocity ads, but I do think they kind of ripped off that idea from there. On ther other hand, maybe it didn't start in Amelie either and the movie and the commercial draw on some older sort of urban legend or practical joke. Anyone sure on this?
