Fifteen of the 16 pink Wagners that the town put up to celebrate its greatest resident have been stolen.

The head of marketing is fuming.

Now who would have nicked a pink Wagner gnome? Lemme think….

  • Max Grimm says:

    Not quite all stolen. 15 of the 16 were stolen OR damaged in an attempt to steal them.

  • Roy Lisker says:

    Well: according to George Bernhard Shaw and Patrice Cheraux, Wagner was a “pink” sympathizer!

  • Michael Schaffer says:

    Come on, Norm, we all know you want one of those for your garden! 🙂
