I have noticed a common thread amongst my cud chewing Tauren, spliff blowing Troll, zug zugging Orc, bone rattling forsaken and magic fume sniffing Blood Elf blogging colleagues.
The dislike Gnomes!?
- They have grudging respect for Dwarves and their beer swilling antics.
- They lurv the Draenei chicks and their tentacles (especially in plate)
- They envy The Human relationship skills, and the reputation that it brings.
- They hate the Night Elves, but then, who doesn’t?
It seems to oscillate between complete hatred to complete ambivalence.
They either target us immediately as pet food, or look straight over our heads, like our punching their kneecaps is nothing but a minor annoyance.
Recently Jong emailed me and told me I had single-handedly changed his opinion of male Gnomes.
I assume for the better… But what did he think was so bad before?
Repgrind loves to toy with my bruised Gnomish self respect, by taking little Troll nibbles out of me like a stoner with the munchies.
Telanarra doubted that a Gnomish Taxi Cab service would be reliable…
While I can’t be sure of this, I dare say Ratshag probably tucks the Orgrimmar Orphans in at night with taxidermied Gnome “teddy bears”
So what is it about Gnomes that makes you want to puke?
Do you see the ponytails and tiny bodies and think: KIDS?
Do you think of Kids playing Gnomes or “I am just trying to get away from the kids for an hour” and run in guilt ridden panic?
BTW, while I may not think Gnome Warriors are Oxymorons… I do feel a little queasy when the Gnome warrior is a cute-as-a-button girl… That’s just not right…
Tell me, what makes you run screaming from the character creation screen at the sight of the Gnome?
I guess alternatively you can tell me what keeps you coming back for more…
PS: Terror Gnomes
Ohhh… OK, I just noticed this possibly related article (and the one that was related to it)
Maybe there is a reason not to like Gnomes…
Gnomer and Out!
