    What the hell are lawn jockeys?! This sounds oddly dirty.

    Think “politically incorrect lawn ornaments”. Honestly, I haven’t seen one since I was a child… a very young child, and even that one wasn’t the “negative” type. However, due to it’s history, I don’t think the PC versions are very popular. I’d rather get a gnome.

    I went to and it appeared to feature strange little red-vested men holding out rings for, um, a horse? I agree gnomes are a far better choice, having no negative history – that I know of anyway. We’ll have to check with the Norwegians on this…

    Yep, that’s a lawn jockey. I think gnomes is definitely the way to go, especially since Travelocity has made that one gnome an International Superstar.
