Sometimes you have to destroy the garden gnomes to save them.

Backstory: the bearded mad scientist was trying to make friends with the crotchety old general, who he had first known in an alternate future which had been prevented.  He did so by creating robotic garden gnomes and ninjas to spy on him, which he then used to save the general from being kidnapped by a mob boss who was using robotic cats to smuggle drugs to sentient colossal squids.

The gnomes were not faring well in the rescue, until the general took command.  And now that they're friends they hold wargames in their back yard.

Must be nice to live in a country where that's a problem.

Meanwhile, in America....

Probably blame Poland.

I'm sure the country that doesn't let people buy groceries on Sunday will manage to outlaw putting peoples gardening project space to better use.
