Given his current position, I'd say he's going Adaginome. Slower would be Largnome, faster would be Allegnome.

Faster still would be Vivace.

I'm more of a SuburbaGnome, but I heartily approve of this shirt.

And yes, I know Gnomes. I contribute irregularly to www.GnomeStew.com, the ENnie award winning game mastering blog. (/brag)

I'm not keeping track of my Woots, but they average more than one a month, starting with the InFocus 4805 Projector on 06/30/05.

Well I thought it hilariously punny, in for one. But I also have an odd fascination with gnomes and didn't go to sleep last night.

We always used an electronic one (I think it was on my band director's tuner) in band class. By high school marching band, electronic was way more practical since it had to be blasted on some speakers.

This reminds me of a "Get Fuzzy" series where Rob buys a metronome for his brother and Bucky and Satchel think he's wrapping a gnome. Hilarity ensues. I've tried to find a link the strips somewhere but my google-fu has failed me.

Has anyone mentioned the song "Metro Gnome" for Brass Band? It's a b*tch to play. Following is a link where you can hear it.

Shouldn't there be a lawn gnome on public transportation?

Metro gnome?

I think it would have been funnier if the metronome wasn't even there and it was a few images of the gnome filing his nails, in a chair with cucumbers over his eyes, shopping, etc.

I still use my mechanical metronome periodically. (Too cheap to replace it, since it still works just fine.)

I'd totally get this shirt, if I hadn't been put on shirt.woot purchasing hiatus by he who holds the purse strings. (Might have to sneak it in later this week.)

The electric ones have been around for a while now. When rehearsing one day, my band director once commented that "this old thing must be slowing down," and about half of our band BELIEVED him.

Not one to comment ever, but I am nearly 100% sure Carrot Top had this bit 15 years ago, honest. Nice rendering though.

Metro? That Gnome is so not metro. I mean, where is his European shoulder bag? And, he's dressed for a Ren fair!

Shirt.woot used to have really cool designs and only a couple punny shirts. Now it's commanded by gaming shirts and these. Oh well, it was good while it lasted.

I believe it's called a Satchel..."It's where I keep all my things. Get a lot of compliments on this. Plus it's not a purse, it's called a satchel. Indiana Jones wears one."

But I totally call it a murse.

If the gnome was dressed well, and the metronome was part of a larger gnome, it could be called, "Metro Metronome Gnome"

wow, loot!

Why does no one else see that gnomes are horrible little creepsters?

Ick. Nothing worse than a picture of a creepy gnome with a stick poking out of it's ass plastered on my chest.

I hope the base has some weight to it. You get that Gonme swaying at 120 bpm and he is going to fall over.

Add me to the list of gnome fans - I am amassing quite a collection of gnomes thanks to everyone I know buying them for me everytime they see one. This shirt is a must add!
Note to designers: If you design it with a gnome, I will buy it!

Got the Gnome shirt for my drummer husband--but it's a bit crooked...anyone else's crooked?
Don't know if it's supposed to be that way--just slightly off kilter....

It should look like the picture that was shown on the sales page. The gnome does lean to one side of the metronome so that could make it appear crooked, I reckon. The feet of the metronome should be straight on the shirt.

If you think it's off, snap a picture of the entire shirt and send an email to service@woot.com. The pic and the order number will speed thing sup.
