    When did Chomsky join Devo? He wouldn’t approve of using their work for selling Swiffer mops.

    Do you think there was “Consent” to the “Manufacturing” of these?

    Whoa, this is an Artist at my family’s gallery in Portland!! His name is Steve Herrington and is a very cool dude.

    If anyone is interested in making the dream of owning your very own Gnome Chomsky a reality please visit

    I’m trying to find a way to bid on one of these but the sight won’t cough it up even in the search. Any help?

    Cory Doctorow has achieved Left 4 Dead 2: Guardin’ Gnome

    (the gnome for that achievement in Left 4 Dead 2, incidentally, is named Gnome Chompski)

      You’ve just cheapened what I went through to earn that achievement.

        Imagine my horror trying to do it with a team of bots, before they patched the bot AI (when the bots would frequently take you being incapped as a cue to take a smoke break and let you die.

    I have to get one of these for my old Stratificational Linguistics professor, so he can put it in his yard and have people throw things at it.

    Does it come in solid chlorine? My office’s urinal could use a new chlorine puck.

    Those of you who do not wish to bid on the charity auction but can’t live without a Garden Noam can apparently buy one here:–oms—products—ordering.html

    It’s so crazy, I may just get one. Maybe I can convince myself that if I get the unpainted version, it’ll be like an art project and will very fulfilling and totally worth the money.

    I got the Guardin’ Gnome achievement on L4D2 two weeks ago. While my mates were incapped, I ran Gnome Chomskey into the stadium, then successfully combated a hunter in the safe room for the touchdown. On advanced!

    The World’s Largest Garden Gnome (I don’t guarantee that to be the case) is also named Gnome Chomsky and lives in Kerhonksen, NY — is the link to the gnome and is the link to the farm he lives on.

    He looks just like CNN’s ex-anchorman Aaron Brown!

    Why does he have a pile of shit on his head?

    Not that that is a bad thing, just curious.

    OK, it’s a cute pun, though it doesn’t beat Nim Chimpsky.

    Happy cybernetic birthday, Noam, wherever you are.

    Their “Green Man” sculpture is a lot more tempting, for me. And, of course, significantly more costly and in limited production. Oh Well.

    Thanks for the laugh. I really enjoyed that. (Which is probably a sad commentary on my sense of humor.)

    Even though I’m not really a fan of Chomsky’s work (either in linguistics or in politics), I’m tempted to get one of these just for the pun value.

    Best visual pun I’ve seen in years.
