Macaulay Culkin Blows Up a Gnome

Most of us have fond memories of Macaulay Culkin from his starring role in "Home Alone". But if you remember, his character, Kevin, thwarts the bad guys through rather violent means.

Evidently some of these rather violent tendencies have rubbed off on Macaulay in real life. In his 2019 Christmas campaign for Happy Socks Macaulay subjects an innocent garden gnome to a random act of violence (or we presume's only implied).

The title of the commercial is "Naughty or Nice" - we vote NAUGHTY.

Special needs students read to gnomes

Who doesn't appreciate a good book? Gnomes certainly do and they love when anyone takes time out of their day to read aloud to them.

If they emigrate to the US, older gnomes often have trouble with English (unless they come from England). So being read to in English is a treasured experience. Being read to by children makes it even more special.


Gnomes love to hear about themselves and this book's perfect for reading aloud. This new storybook tells of a fellow who thinks he's different, but learns he's more similar to his fellow gnomes than he thinks.
