Poundland Customer Shocked After Spotting Gnome Swearing And Flashing
When you walk up and down the aisles at your local Poundland the last thing you expect to see is a pot gnome flipping you the bird.
But that's what happened to one customer who spotted the garden gnome on sale for £2 ($2.50) next to his brother who was flashing his bum. It get's
better, sorry, worse.
Hang on there, the real story here is this - why in the world is Poundland selling something for two quid?
The budget store is selling these little fellas and the Bletchley, Milton Keynes branch has them on sale right opposite the children's 'toys and games' section. Oooops.
One gnome had his middle finger up while the other was exposing its arse and was positioned so it was 'mooning' the other one.
We can't help but feel it would look better if the swearing guy was turned so it looked like he was swearing at his mooning mate. Just for future reference or whatever.
According to The Sun, the naughty gnomes are situated in the garden section which is directly opposite shelves which contain children's toys including bats and balls.

He added: "It was at a child's eye level so I thought it was very inappropriate product placement.
"If the shop wants to sell these kinds of products they should put them on the top shelf so kids can't see them."
They added: "It could encourage youngsters to start swearing which obviously isn't a good thing."
A Poundland spokesman said: "Our cheeky gnomes - are exactly where they should be - in the gardening aisle.
"And seeing as they're one of our best-sellers - over 50,000 in the last 10 days - looks like most customers get the joke."
So there you have it, Poundland not giving a shit. And it's not the first time, back in March its Easter Twitter post caused a stir.
