To start kill 21 garden gnomes. Grind them and put them in a white pot. Add 21 seeds of pois congo and a bit of string with 21 knots.

Leave white pot in a dark room. The knots will become spiders that are to be the znomes. Treat the spiders carefully, feeding them with just enough food and water but no salt.

When you are in need of their sevices you must perform another magic (hold your mfd, it's tried and tested after all).

Knock three times on the door and open it behind your back to give the spiders time to assume the shape of znomes.

Speak harshly when you give them orders and beat them to put the fear in them. Or they will harm you.

Don't forget to hand out straws as you send them on their way.

How did you survive without one of these [WcW]? [zeno, Dec 30 2008]

Someone thought this was a good idea. http://www.thegreen...ie-garden-gnome.php

       Could someone suggest a category please? I often have difficulty finding the right one. One of these days I'm going to make an idea about that.

       "This is your brain on drugs" category ?
FlyingToaster, Dec 29 2008

       Wow... just... yeah? I would go perhaps other:metaphysics or home: garden:ornament

       How did I miss that category? Thanks!

       Perhaps, [zeno], you should put in some links for the benefit of people who don't know the difference between the original voodoo zombies (like these) and the very different Romero-type zombies.

       why are yard gnomes used for re-animating rope? What form does the final reanimated creature take? I am also baffled by P. 6, straws? what sort? Do you have a link for the reference in P.3? "After all" is a pretty bold statement.   

       Please Spread Light Here.

       Just say gno to drugs.   


       Last time i animated a gnome (admitedly a closet gnome but a similar species) the process didn't involve rope (other than to secure the beast) or grinding it up. For best results store in a cool dry place after re-animation.

       Is meddling with the zenome going to cause mutations ?
WcW, Dec 31 2008

       Don't bother with the category view, [zeno] - just use search to find the closest idea to yours and then hit "add" while on that idea and you'll automatically be posting in the same category.   

       Of course, if you're already doing that then I can't help you.
